Proud daughter Charlotte Dawson had fans gasping as she shared photos of herself and mum Tracy after they both turned their lives around with a diet and exercise plan. And she stunned her followers of her by revealing her glam mum’s age of her.
Model Charlotte, the daughter of the late Manchester comedian Les Dawson, shared posted a photo of the mother and daughter in matching pink floral dresses as she told how they had both reversed type two diabetes by overhauling their lifestyle.
Mum-of-one Charlotte took to Instagram to say Tracy is “71 and never looked or felt better.” She has joined Charlotte’s ‘Belleh Blaster’ plan, ditched alcohol and is now a size 14-16 when she was previously a size 22 to 24.

And she said her comedy legend dad will be “beaming with pride.”
Charlotte, who has a one-year-old son Noah with her fiance Matt Sarsfield, typed: “I’m soooo proud of my beautiful mummy @tracydawsonx she has completely turned her life around.
“She now doesn’t drink, she’s reversed her type 2 diabetes like I have… got fit, healthy and changed her mindset.
“My mum joined me on my journey and we smashed it together belleh blast style.. she has gone from a size 22-24 to now a size 14-16!!”
Charlotte was emotional as she wrote: “She feels so happy and confident.. and today she told me is the first day she’s felt comfortable wearing a dress like this in 30 years since my dad was here. My mum is my inspiration but hearing her say I’m her inspiration for making her change her lifestyle around makes me feel so proud and really makes me want to cry happy tears.
“A massive around of applause to my beautiful inside and out @tracydawsonx 71 and never looked or felt better.. my dad will be beaming with pride up there.”

And shelliee.x exclaimed: “She is never 71!!!! Wow!”
Charlotte reportedly lost four stone after she was warned that her diet risked her developing type two diabetes, the same condition battled by her national treasure dad who passed away when she was a baby.
In January she said: “I’ve never felt more happier, healthier and confident.”
She was diagnosed with gestational diabetes when she was pregnant with Noah, a common condition that affects one in 20 pregnant women.
She believed the condition was just part of her pregnancy and returned to her usual diet including her favorite chips and gravy after giving birth in January.
But Charlotte was told to clean up her diet during a trip to the doctor after she felt ‘a bit funny.’
She said previously: “I started this fitness journey with the goal of avoiding type two diabetes because I had gestational diabetes and was warned I was still in danger after Noah was born.”
She added: “My dad had it and died when I was just eight-months-old, so it really was a wake-up call to start getting fit.”
Type two diabetes is a condition that causes the level of sugar in the blood to become too high and can lead to stroke, blindness, heart disease, kidney failure, limb amputation and early death.
The former Ex On The Beach star is known for her down-to-earth and body confident Instagram posts.
And she was hailed as an inspiration as she embraced her “postpartum jelly belly and tiger stripes” after giving birth.
