Dawn French jokes that she’d like to be embalmed in a plexiglass coffin with a hearse that says “slut” on it

Dawn French has joked that she wants to be embalmed and buried in a plexiglass coffin with the word ‘slut’ written on it.

French appeared on the first episode of Kathy Burke’s new podcast, Where there’s a will, there’s a trace, published on Tuesday (November 29). On the podcast, Burke interviews celebrity guests about their imaginary deaths and funerals.

The Vicar of Dibley star, 65, opened up about how she would like her body to be presented when she dies.

Discussing the circumstances of her death, French said she would like to die “Tommy Cooper style” on stage.

In 1984, Cooper died of a heart attack while appearing on The Royal Variety Show in front of millions of television viewers.

French then revealed what her dream funeral procession would look like, which would include a “Barbie” see-through hearse.

She joked, “I’m humble…I’m low key. I’d like a see-through hearse, a bit like a Barbie type hearse, but black.”

French gave more details on the hearse’s design, stating, “Things should be spelled out [on the sides of the hearse]. And I’m torn, and maybe you can help me with that.

“Either says there, like on a page, it says something like legend but spelled ‘Le egji N D.’ Legend. And then it says ‘Slut’ on the other side.”

French added that she “definitely” wants “the horses with the feathers” and “RuPaul with the top hat.”

The actor went on to explain that she would like to have “some sort of wake” made up of “former lovers and concubines.”

When asked about her dream coffin, she said it would be “rectified” and “obviously made of solid gold.” She likened it to a “sarcophagus” but with a sheet of plexiglass “so it’s see-through.”

Explaining her reasons for the choice, she said: “Because Kathy, what I really want, if you give me that, I want to keep. I want to be embalmed. Right with full makeup. With eyelashes. Possibly a vicar outfit.”

“And the Plexiglas front has two holes for my t*** to come through. And if you want, you can rub them for luck. When you enter Cornwall,” she said.

French is currently starring in pantomime alongside Julian Clary and Alexandra Burke Jack and the Beanstalk at the London Palladium.
