Dawn was spotted at the press night for Oklahoma! in the West End 

The hilarious update came just days after the comedy star showed off her newly trimmed-down frame as she stepped out for the press night of Oklahoma! in London's West End.

The star revealed the recent weight loss was sparked by a worrying health issue after being told she needed to lose weight before having a hysterectomy following a cancer scare. She explained her doctor had been convinced she had uterine cancer prompting her to opt to have the operation to remove her womb.

Before undergoing the surgery Dawn shed 7.5 stone. "When I was due to have my hysterectomy the doc told me that if I could lose some weight before the op, they would be able to do it via keyhole, and I would recover in three weeks or so," she said. "Otherwise it would be big open surgery, and three months to recover. So, I set about dropping a few stone.

"No magic wand," she added. "Just tiny, joyless low-cal eating and lots more walking for weeks and weeks. It was grim. I lost seven-and-a-half stone. I could have the keyhole surgery. Great. That’s all it was, practical."
