As she plans to spend more time with her loved ones, she thanked the show and fans for their support.
Dawn continued: ‘I am so grateful to ITV, Monkey Kingdom and all the amazing cast over the years past and present! Most importantly the amazing fans for their incredible support.
‘It’s a great show and will only go from strength to strength as it’s done since season one. I want to wish everyone involved on the show the best of luck and I can’t wait to tune in for season 13!
The mother-of-four concluded: ‘Once again thank you so much for all your support, you really have been incredible. Exciting times ahead❤️❤️’.
Dawn recently opened up to MailOnline about her battle with coronavirus, as she confessed she ‘feared the worst’.
She recalled her horrendous experience with the virus: ‘I was so poorly for two weeks. It was more worrying when you first get it because you don’t know what to expect. You see a lot of people who have been really sick so you’re expecting the worst.
‘I did feel pretty rough, I didn’t leave my bed actually, I lost my appetite, headaches, shaking, shivering, and I had a very high temperature, but I was very lucky that I didn’t get the more severe symptoms.
‘My children didn’t really show as many of the symptoms but it’s the longest I’ve ever, ever been in bed. It’s the longest I’ve ever stopped working and out of our family, I probably got it the worst.’
