Dawn French revealed on Wednesday’s This Morning that she is turning 60-years-old in October.
But fans refused to believe Dawn French is hitting the birthday milestone, taking to Twitter in droves to comment on how good the comedienne looked.
‘I can’t believe Dawn French will be 60 next! She doesn’t look a day over 40! Love her,’ one fan wrote.
Another added: ‘Honestly, I thought she was joking,’while a third tweeted: ‘How the HELL is Dawn French 60 soon? She looks AMAZING.’
The comic’s youthful appearance on the show sent fans into meltdown as she chatted to hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby about her new entertainment show Little Big Shots.
The star sported a pretty loose fitting black top adorned with pink flowers teamed with black trousers and pink velvet boots while her glossy brunette hair looked sleek.
‘She must have some really good genes. Good for her,’ wrote another disbelieving fan while other described their reaction as ‘shocked,’ adding that the comic hadn’t aged ‘in about 30 years’.
And it seems Dawn also feels younger than her true age, telling Holly and Phil she feels more like 40.
‘I thought at 60 you should just die [when I was a kid,’ she declared to the rather bemused presenters. ‘But 60 feels just like 40. [I couldn’t imagine turning this age] when I was little.’
The star also expressed her desire for grandchildren – she has a daughter Billie by ex Lenny Henry.
‘I know you are not supposed to encourage your kids to have children, but I am a grandparent in waiting,’ she declared.
‘Jen [Jennifer Saunders] has three I practice with – I am waiting for grandkids.’
