Jo Brand has viewed the giant 'memorial Easter egg' at St George the Martyr church in Borough High Street.
The comedian had been in the church whilst filming in the area and afterwards walked round to the small garden at the church's east end overlooking Tabard Street.
The Easter egg was first painted in bright colours on site in the churchyard garden by Polish artists on Easter Eve and blessed by Fr Ray Andrews of St George's.
But last weekend the Polish community took the unprecedented step of painting the egg black following the news of the air crash which resuted in the death of the Polish President and many the country's leading figures.
Flags with black ribbons and candles have been placed at the base. Small nests of traditionally coloured Easter eggs remain nearby.
The black egg will remain in place until the end of this week. On Saturday roses are due to be planted on the site as part of the St George in Southwark Festival. Meanwhile the church is staging an exhibition by Polish photographer Richard Szydlo.
