CHARLOTTE Dawson is the daughter of famous British comedian Les Dawson – but she’s making her own mark on the showbiz scene.
She burst onto screens in MTV reality programme Ex On The Beach and now she’s back and looking for love on E4’s Celebs Go Dating.
Where is Charlotte Dawson from, how old is she and who are her parents?
Make-up artist Charlotte is from Manchester – despite claiming on Twitter her location is “hiding in your toe.”
The bubbly northern lass was born on October 3, 1992, and is 24.
Her dad was former comedy legend Les, who died in 1993 when she was just eight months old.
Les was at a routine hospital appointment in Manchester and awaiting the results, when he suffered a major heart attack and died.
Her mum Tracy then raised her alone.
How does Charlotte Dawson keep dad Les’ memory alive?
Charlotte and mum Tracy often visit his memorial, a bronze statue erected 15 years after his passing, in Lytham St Anne’s.
They also hold a vigil at Christmas Day and munch their festive lunch in the family home, close to his ashes in the garden.
Thoughtful Tracy put a video clip showing Les welcoming newborn Charlotte home into safe-keeping for when her daughter grew up.
Charlotte told the Sunday Mirror: “I am so lucky to have this footage.
“It is heartbreaking.
“But my mum has always kept my dad alive for me.”
Is Charlotte in a relationship?
No. Charlotte split from rugby player Matt Sarsfield back in February and claimed her “heart had been ripped out”.
Before hooking up with the Swintons Lions star, she had a brief fling with BFF Jemma Lucy but has since admitted their ‘romance’ was fake.
What TV programmes has Charlotte Dawson been on?
She flirted up a storm in the last series of racy MTV show Ex on the Beach.
She was then forced to chose between Alex and Manchester lad Jordan Davies, eventually opting to spend some more time with “stubborn” Alex.
What was Charlotte’s most controversial moment on Ex on the Beach?
Unquestionably it was her saucy hook-up with Gaz Beadle.
The Geordie Shore hunk got down and dirty with new arrival Charlotte and Olivia Walsh – with Charlotte bluntly telling the camera she “wouldn’t say no” to a threesome.
Following a huge row after housemate Chloe was kicked out of the show – Gaz invited Charlotte to the penthouse for some drama free time. On the way, they bumped into Olivia, who decided to join them.
Charlotte, Gary and Olivia were seen kissing before concealing themselves under the duvet for their X-rated romp.
It was first reported Gaz had the threesome in April, despite his on-off romance with Charlotte Crosby being stronger than ever.
