Another heaped praise onto Dawn and said: ‘Love you, you brighten my day.’ 

On Wednesday, the TV star joined the likes of Robbie Williams and Holly Willoughby to sign a joint letter led by Martin Lewis urging the Prime Minister to crack down on scam adverts.  

This Morning star Martin, 49, who has long campaigned against bogus ads using his face to lure users,  wants tech giants to be held responsible under new laws, and for the government to put paid scam adverts in the upcoming Online Safety Bill. 

Sir Richard Branson, Bear Grylls, Phillip Schofield, Lorraine Kelly, Davina McCall, Bradley Walsh, Rob Brydon, as well as Dragon’s Den stars Deborah Meaden, Duncan Bannatyne and Peter Jones, are also among the celebrities who have added their name to the letter to Boris Johnson.   

All of the stars have had their names and photos used in scam adverts online. In recent years This Morning host Holly’s name and likeness has been used to flog diet pills and for a cryptocurrency scam.

Dawn shared a photo of the letter signed by 14 celebrities, with the caption: ‘I’m joining @martinlewismse & 12 other folk like me that have had our names & faces used by criminal scammers in fraudulent ads – to call upon @borisjohnsonuk to regulate online scam ads in the Online Safety Bill #StopScamAds.’
