'Harry Potter' Star Dawn French Enjoys a String of Dates Following Marriage Split

October 25, 2010 (7:58 am) GMT
Stating she just wants to have a good time, the actress who separated from Lenny Henry since 2009 declares she does not want to get remarried.

"Harry Potter" star is putting the breakdown of her 25-year marriage to British comedian firmly behind her by stepping out on the dating scene again. The funnywoman announced in April she had separated from Henry back in October 2009, but had chosen to keep the split private.

The pair has managed to remain amicable, with French insisting they are now the "best of friends". And French is making the most of her new single status - she's been enjoying a string of dates with male pals, but insists she's not looking to exchange vows anytime in the future.

She says, "It's bizarre because suddenly you have a different sort of standing. You get messages on your phone - or I do - from people I've known for some time, saying, 'Might a gentleman take a lady out for dinner?' I've had a couple of nibbles... I don't really want to get remarried. I just want to have a good time."
