Les Dawson’s daughter, Charlotte, has told her 933k followers on Instagram of her overwhelming emotions of joy when boyfriend Matt Sarsfield went down on one knee in front of her dad’s statue – and proposed! She says that she could not hold back tears of happiness after her ‘Prince Charming’, who she has been dating for four years, popped the question.

The engagement is a double joy for Charlotte, 27, and ex-rugby player Matt as they are expecting their first child together. And Matt, 28, asked Charlotte, who has starred in ‘Ex On The Beach’, ‘The Farm’, ‘Celebrity Ghost Hunt Live’ and ‘Celebs Go Dating’, to marry him the day before they were due to find out the gender of their baby.

Charlotte has shared photos from the special moment in front of Les’ statue whilst proudly showing her sparkling engagement ring.  Charlotte wrote to her many followers on Instagram: ‘OMG OMG OMG my darlings IM CHUFFIN ENGAGED!!!!! to the man of my dreams. I can’t believe it!!! My baby, my life, my world @matt_sarsfield couldn’t of done it better he got on one knee at my dad’s statue!!! the day before we find out what gender our baby is. I can’t cope. My fairy-tale came true I feel the luckiest girl in the world. My dad got to witness me get engaged.”

She added: “I’m so happy love you so much @matt_sarsfield xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx WOW my ring.”

In 2016 Charlotte brought a cardboard cut-out of her dad onto the set of the ITV show This Morning. She said she would make sure Les will be there when she marries her dream man by taking the cut-out of him to the church. She told the show: ‘Hopefully he’ll be there. He’ll be down the aisle waiting for me.’
