French: New love's not a TV fan

Dawn French is pleased her new man has never watched her TV shows

Dawn French has revealed her new man has never seen her on TV.

The comedienne found fame starring in hit series such as French And Saunders and The Vicar Of Dibley, but boyfriend Mark Bignell wasn't one of the millions of people tuning in to the shows.

Dawn told Saga magazine: "I'm not boasting, but you'd actually have to have not watched television for the past 20 years to have avoided me. And he'd managed to do just that."

She added of the charity boss: "He's encouraging and supportive, but my job doesn't mean any more to him than anyone else's."

Dawn also revealed that she and former husband Lenny Henry are still good pals.

"We parted three years ago, so life has moved on for both of us," Dawn said.

"We're in touch constantly. We were very great friends during the divorce, which I now realise was far from being typical."
