The Vicar of Dibley actress went on to talk of her body image.

Dawn said: “I never did dislike anything about my body, even when I was very, very fat.

“I refuse to be forced to dislike myself. I used to get really angry when I did lose weight, people going, ‘You look so well,’ as if you looked awful before – rewarding you for managing it, which is not easy, I accept that.

“But I didn’t want people to give me approval. It’s so patronising.”

Back in 2017, Dawn shocked Holly Willoughby and Phil Schofield after she revealed she would be turning 60.

At the time, Phillip exclaimed to the actress: “No way!”

Dawn replied: “Way, I am sixty this year, how did that happen.

“When I was a kid you know I used to look at people who were sixty and think you should just really die because what is the point of you now.

“You know when I was little, that’s what I used to think about people who were sixty, I did, and now I am that person.

“Isn’t it weird sixty doesn’t feel like anything, I feel just like I was forty.”

She went on to talk of how she doesn’t want to spend her time doing “meaningless things.”

Dawn continued: “I just don’t want to do meaningless things.

“I haven’t got enough time left, I haven’t got enough minutes left in my life to not be thinking properly.”

Talking of turning 60 to Australian show Saturday Night in the same year Dawn spoke of how she felt “grateful”.

She told Saturday Night: “Listen, I’m delighted to be 60.

“I’ve got plenty of mates that didn’t make it to 60, so I am grateful to be here.”
