Dawn French is selling her beloved home in Fowey, Cornwall after the area has become too "trendy".
The comedian notoriously loves life in Cornwall, and regularly mocks the seaside town's abundant beauty.
But now an insider close to the TV star - who is a self-confessed functioning introvert - has confirmed she's decided to move to a lesser-known part of the coast in a bid to protect her privacy.
More from woman&home:
An insider told the Mail Online, "Yes, Dawn is selling up, but she’s very much staying in Cornwall. She just wanted a change.
"Dawn is low-profile and private. The fact that Fowey has recently become cool and trendy isn’t what she finds appealing per se."
Having moved out of London 14 years ago because she found it "overwhelming" at times, it's no surprise Dawn has made this decision.
"It can get very busy now during summer. Dawn will always love Fowey and had 15 wonderful years living there. She will miss all the locals who made her feel so welcome."

After years of grueling TV schedules filming The Vicar of Dibley and French and Saunders, Dawn’s priorities have changed in life and the comedy actress now craves the “quiet” life.
Citing her reasons behind the decision to leave London in 2006, she told Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place podcast she found city life too much.
There always seemed too much to do in London for Dawn. “I find the clutter of it overwhelming. I think I’m not meant for a city… that isn’t the real me. The real me is quiet.”
Whereas in Cornwall, Dawn feels calm. “There is, without a doubt, beauty here. I can do nothing but connect with that.
“It makes me calm, it makes me happier and it sort of enthuses my mind with better ways of thinking.”.”
