Dawn French looks unrecognisable as she swaps iconic blunt bob for grey crop

Dawn French has debuted a much shorter hair do.

Posting to Instagram on Tuesday, the Vicar of Dibley star, 63, stunned fans by sharing an image of herself with her signature bob-length hair cut off.

Having surprised her followers by shaving an undercut into her hair earlier this year, Dawn revealed the move was part of an ongoing attempt to ditch her dyed colour and restore her grey hair.

Dawn captioned the post: "Cutting off all the old colour…gradually getting there with the grey… starting short… aiming at the [old] bob in full grey glory.

She added: It's a process… I'm not great at patience."

Quick to compliment Dawn on her efforts were admirers from within her 213,000 Instagram followers.

One wrote: "You're going to look great! I truly believe it!"

Another commented: "Grey is where it's at! Looking good."

A third said: "You're so brave and beautiful."

Meanwhile, a fourth replied: "Loving the new hairdo! Short and sassy!"

"Looking beautiful as always," a fifth admirer concluded.

Dawn's post follows her previously confessing that she 'hid' filthy jokes in her popular sitcom, The Vicar of Dibley.

The BBC series ran from 1994 – 2007 and has been reprised for Christmas specials and charity episodes in the years since.

On the naughty jokes, Dawn said: "We have said more outrageous things on that programme which is seemingly cosy and seemingly very British and very friendly and all generations are welcome.

"That's what it looks like but in the middle of it there's people talking about bestiality, there's characters talking about having sex with trans people, there's all kinds of things going on that show that there are mentions of, full on sex jokes that are very edgy and there's quite a lot of politics on that show.

She added: "She [Vicar] is a bit creepy and far too interested in lust, she’s interested in food, she’s interested in her own self-promotion.

"I’ve met people very like her, some women."

Last December, the sitcom was revived for three 10-minute specials called The Vicar of Dibley in Lockdown.
