Charlotte Dawson has hit back on Instagram after receiving cruel messages from vile trolls accusing her of lying about being pregnant. The reality star took to Instagram on Monday to share her miscarriage heartbreak after fans noticed that she had gone quiet on social media.
While updating her followers to say she’s feeling ‘absolutely drained’ and ‘in agony’ following her tragic loss she went on to address the ‘disgusting’ trolls who have reduced her to tears by accusing her of making up the pregnancy. Charlotte says she and her fiance Matthew Sarsfield have both received nasty messages during their time of grieving.
The 29-year-old daughter of the late comedian Les Dawson revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage with a heart-rending video of Charlotte and their one-year-old son Noah with her pregnancy test after she found out she was expecting. She told fans on Instagram: “I’m still not feeling 100% – like I’m just absolutely drained and so tired and still in agony a little bit, it’s starting to wear off.”

She then said: “I just don’t appreciate some of the disgusting, horrific messages that Matthew and I are receiving.” Charlotte explained: “I can’t even believe that I have to even defend myself like this. I’ve been in tears crying over s*** that people say. They’re basically saying that I’m lying about being pregnant. I can’t believe I have to prove that I was pregnant.
The former Ex on the Beach and Celebs Go Dating star held up one of her pregnancy tests to the camera as she addressed the matter and she showed a screenshot of some of the abuse. She said: “People just seem to have a massive opinion on my life and think they can get away with it. It’s absolutely disgusting what people say.”
She concluded by sharing a screenshot of a photograph of her pregnancy test on the day she found out about the news on Mother’s Day, showing the date circled as Sunday March 27. “There you go idiot trolls,” she said. “Yeah I’m really lying that I was pregnant for attention. What the actual F is wrong with people!!!”
And she pleaded: “Please stop messaging my fiance screenshotting my video saying there is one line… this is the test. And I will keep it forever in my little box of memories.”
Thanking fans for their supportive messages she shared a picture of a beautiful bunch of flowers she had received from a stranger.
“The love has been insane. I’m grateful for every single one of you,” she said.
She told her 1.3million followers on Monday that she was “heartbroken beyond words.” And she told fans: “I was so excited to share our happy news with you all. Noah’s little brother or little sister, as you can imagine Matthew and I were absolutely over the moon our little family was going to be growing. I also found out on mother’s day which was just so special.
“But sometimes it’s just not meant to be, I really thought it was but it just wasn’t this time. Miscarriages are so common and not spoke about enough. We are so heartbroken right now have no words and just don’t feel up to post being my happy silly self right now.”
Yesterday Charlotte shared a moving video clip of herself and Noah sharing cuddles and kisses as she told how he had helped her. “Thank god I have you… my Noah my best friend, my little shadow, my sidekick my beautiful baby boyo my sunshine always,” she wrote.
“Thank you for giving me the best job in the world being your mama. I’d be lost without you, you’ve picked me up so much when I’ve felt at rock bottom this week.. (he must of known I needed kisses ).”
And she added: “Thank you for all your messages they are not going unnoticed, they are everything. I feel so lucky and grateful for every single one of you… I promise I’ll try to get through as many as I can this week love you all so much xxx”
