So this is how Dawn French spends her spare time in Cornwall - going somewhat incognito on a beach!

The Delicious and Vicar of Dibley star has tweeted a photo walking her dog at Par.

She was disguised in a weather-guarding outfit, complete with yellow mac and brimmed hat.

Dawn posted: ""No sir. No rain here. #Kernow. #Always sunny".

Hundreds of followers tweeted their replies, including Hannah who said: "It's always sunny on Parbados!! #Cornwall #cornishsunshine".

Sarah commented: "Loving the coat!! It's like Vogue meets Fisherman Friends", while Jan said: "Beautiful place no matter what the weather".

Bob posted: "Here Dawn, is that a new style of British sun hat? Beats the floppy soft cotton 'ats of yesteryear with our liquid sun, did you design it?"

Adele added: "That raincoat like the one you had on when you met the villagers of Dibley" - and she wasn't alone in thinking that!
