Dawn French poses with rarely seen niece Hannah – and fans can't believe how alike they look

FANS of Dawn French thought they were seeing double when she shared a photo of her with niece Katie.

The 64-year-old took Katie with her to ITV's An Audience with Adele in London, and posted a series of snaps from their night out together.

Dawn wrote: "Out on the razz w/ @frrenchiee to see @adele last night. Wooooweeee! Girl can SING! And Adele wasn’t bad either…"

"LOVE your hair, @dawnrfrench," wrote one fan. "Looks like a fun time with your mini-me." Another commented: "You look stupendous, Hannah definitely looks like you xxx." And someone else said: "Beautiful ladies. You look so alike."

Some of Dawn's followers even thought Katie was her daughter Billie! One wrote: "Your daughter is very pretty just like her mum." Another said: "Gorgeous hair and equally gorgeous daughter!"

Dawn is very close to her niece and one said: "It feels a bit like we are twins born 40 years apart."

In an open letter to Hannah in her 2008 autobiography Dear Fatty, Dawn wrote: "Right from the moment you were born, on Boxing Day 1993, and when I first looked into your eyes, I knew we were linked in a profound way.

"I am so glad you’re here, that you’re my niece and I cherish our mysterious sameness."

Joking about their similarities, Dawn continued: "I can’t apologise enough for the lifetime of comparison to me you have already had to, and will in the future, endure. The endless comments about how you and I are so similar must be agonising."

Dawn previously opened up about her relationship with adopted daughter Billie, 30, who she shares with ex-husband Lenny Henry, confessing they cannot live together because of the "frequent wars" they have.

She said: "I haven't got a kid who wants to read with me and have adventures with me, I've got a different kind of kid who's a different kind of set of challenges and that's been my lesson.

"Our relationship exists in a bizarre kind of process of peacetime, small battles, war. The peacetime is much more than the other two energies, but we have our wars."
