Dawn French reveals hilarious reason she named her boobs Ant and Dec

Dawn French has revealed the rather hilarious reason she’s nicknamed her boobs Ant and Dec.

The Vicar of Dibley star renamed her breasts in honour of Geordie presenting duo Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly because one is slightly smaller than the other – just like them.

The comedy actress also revealed the unusual name she’s given her other intimate area as she chatted on tonight’s Graham Norton Show.

Dawn told Graham: "My boobs are Ant and Dec because one is slightly smaller.

"And my more intimate areas are called Mumford and Sons because they are beardy."

She was on the show to talk about her new book, Me. You. A Diary.

She said: "It’s a bit of wisdom about the things I’ve learnt and some questions I’ve still got about life. It’s to remind you throughout the year to like yourself."

It comes after the 60-year-old said she and pal Jennifer Saunders said they plan to put the whole of 2019 aside to make a movie together.

And they hope they can follow up on the success of their 30th anniversary reunion.

She said: "Jennifer and I have a film idea that we’d like to do.

"What it really means is that she and I have got to say, ‘You know 2019, let’s just put it aside and work together and find something we want to do’."

Speaking to Fearne Cotton on her new Happy Place podcast, released today, Dawn says taking time off when she adopted daughter Billie in 1991 led to Jennifer’s success with Absolutely Fabulous.

She and Jennifer, 59, who met at school in 1978, had studios booked to make French and Saunders programmes.
