We are thrilled to announce that comedian, writer and actor Dawn French will be joining us here at the Towers on Wednesday 3 November, from 7.30pm to 8.30pm for a live webchat.
Dawn has appeared in some of the country's most long-running, fave shows including French and Saunders, The Comic Strip Presents?, Vicar of Dibley and most recently, Roger and Val Have Just Got In.
On top of her screen achievements, Dawn's memoir, Dear Fatty, topped the best-selling charts and now her first novel, A Tiny Bit Marvellous, is out and it's more than a tiny bit marvellous that she's joining us for a webchat. Hope you can too, but if you're unable to make it on Wednesday, post your questions here.

Thanks lizs, but can't see anything highlighted in blue (or any other colour for that matter...) All I can see are questions/messages from Mumsnetters...confused

LIZS Sat 06-Nov-10 17:43:10

chox the Webchat is within this thread - for me they are highlighted in blue but that may juts be the version of MN I use (classic)

choxanwine Sat 06-Nov-10 17:38:33

I am a bit new to this but am I being thick or something - I can't see Dawn's chat or responses to any of the questions... Could somebody please enlighten me?

Dawn is on meet the author on bbc news 24 now.

AnnieBeansMum Thu 04-Nov-10 15:00:37

Oh my god - I missed this (bloody internet down) AND Dawn answered my question!! Does this mean I can now start telling people that I have had a conversation with Dawn French?? Ohhhhh....


PosieComeHereMyPreciousParker Thu 04-Nov-10 13:23:42

Wow, the best chat I've ever read!!

Rocketbird Thu 04-Nov-10 13:11:18

Sod it, I missed her. And I've read half the book angry

BangingNoise Thu 04-Nov-10 13:07:30

That's what I mean, Loose Women. She made me cry with laughter when she came on with her book earrings!

RTKangaMummy Thu 04-Nov-10 12:29:27

Thanks teacup for the info smile ~ you are deffo brill smile

Dawn is about to be on Loose Women on ITV1 smile

BangingNoise Thu 04-Nov-10 12:18:51

Has she been on This Morning yet? Do you think she'll mention MN?

bran Thu 04-Nov-10 11:12:34

What a pity I missed this. sad I feel a special bond with her (one-way only obviously) since the time that time that our approval to adopt panel date was cancelled because I was too fat. I remembered her saying in an interview years and years ago that there were also issues with her weight when being assessed. It all worked out fine by the way, in the end we came away with our gorgeous DD and I had a hunky personal trainer. grin

I hope that Dawn will sneak back and read about how much we all love her sometime in the future because I didn't get chance to tell her how totally fabulous she is when she was here.

Dawn - you are totally fabulous. [snogs Dawn]

One of my little daydreams is about being a sketch writer with Dawn and Jennifer. I turn up to their production office (or a gorgous house) armed with a notebook and a life-time supply of Green & Blacks. It all goes swimmingly until the point where they ask me who my favourite comedian is, at which point I lose my limited social skills completely and blurt out "Victoria Wood". blush Then it all goes frosty, I leave under a cloud not having written anything even remotely funny, and that's the end of my comedy writing career. grin

Oooh thanks chipped. I have emailed them to ask whether they can send stuff to Belgium.

ChippedChinaTeacup Thu 04-Nov-10 10:54:18

and there used to be a shop in Camden, near the lock but I don't know if it's still there

Hope that helps a little bit

kreecherlivesupstairs Thu 04-Nov-10 08:52:29

Another plea for MNHQ to ask about her 1847 range. Please.

southeastastra Thu 04-Nov-10 08:24:51

aw she didn't answer my question, was rather lame i admit grin

PercyPigPie Wed 03-Nov-10 23:10:54

Purplepeony and Miffymuffy (what a ridiculous name by the way) - you are both so RUDE. I am speechless that you could be so unkind and think your comments even remotely appropriate, I am amazed that more people are not up in arms about your comments.

Dawn, are you still there? (probably not if you don't have a PC) - please ignore them - you look lovely.

dillydallydolly Wed 03-Nov-10 22:38:18

Have just caught up with the chat as missed it live! I actually just cried little happy tears as I read in complete shock that she had answered my question!!?!

Am now gonna have to rush out and buy the new book tomorrow - instead of waiting for it as a christmas pressie! So thats another one sold Dawn

Thankyou MN, whos next for the webchat??

prettyfly1 Wed 03-Nov-10 21:35:31

What an ace chat! Thanks so much Dawn and MN!!

FellatioNelson Wed 03-Nov-10 21:32:42

Do you think she found us all so warm and witty and wonderful that she might go out and buy a computer so she can be our friend? She needs us, let's face it. We have loads of good advice on here, we can pick her out nice clothes on S&B, commiserate with her when her new date is crap, empathise if she wants to bitch about her ex, and she can have a 'night out' on a Friday without having to drive back to Cornwall. It's not right not having a computer is it? I feel a little bit sorry for her now. We could be the making of that girl - if only she knew it. As it is she's just festering, hanging out with famous types and fiddling around writing bits of stuff out longhand.sad
