The 27 year old reality star, who announced she is expecting her first child in an exclusive shoot with OK! magazine, opened up about her paranormal experience on the day she discovered she was pregnant.

Charlotte was just eight months old when her beloved dad Les passed away from a heart attack in 1993. The comedian and Blankety Blank presenter was just 62 when he died.

Speaking exclusively to OK! magazine, Charlotte revealed she feels her dad’s presence “all the time”.

Reality star Charlotte explained: “Whenever I’ve got a big job to do or something is making me nervous, I feel like he’s watching over me.

“The day I found out I was pregnant, I was home alone and the TV just randomly turned on really loud and then switched off.

“I looked it up and apparently that can be a spirit trying to connect with you. I felt so sure that was my dad letting me know he was there.”

She added: “I’ve got so many pictures of him all over the house and I go and visit the statue of him all the time.

“I’ve told Matthew if he wants to propose, he needs to get permission from his statue first!”

Meanwhile, Charlotte’s boyfriend Matthew added: “I know Charlotte’s dad means everything to her. She loves him and it’s important for both of us to keep his memory alive.”

Charlotte also revealed she wants to follow in her father’s footsteps as she said: “I’m so proud to be his daughter and I want to follow in his footsteps.

“I’ve done a lot of presenting and I’d love to host Blankety Blank. That would be my dream.”

That isn’t the only connection Charlotte’s late father has to her pregnancy as she revealed there is also a chance she could welcome her first child on his birthday.

When asked what kind of grandfather she thinks Les would be, she gushed: “He would’ve been the best grandfather. It’s bittersweet because he would have been here, making everyone laugh.

“It makes me emotional to go through my first pregnancy and he’s not here. I wish my dad was here to meet his grandchild.”

She added: “It’s so strange because when we first did the test, we worked out that my due date would land on his 90th birthday. When I told my mum that, she burst into tears.

“We went for the first scan and my due date is actually the week before, but there’s every chance I could give birth on his birthday. What a tribute that would be!”
