Mum-to-be Charlotte Dawson suffered a scare when she didn’t feel her unborn baby kick for two days.

The Celebs Go Dating star is expecting her first child with fiance Matthew Sarsfield, who she has been with for four years.

She shared a video on Instagram from hospital as her baby’s heartbeat was checked.

Thankfully all was well as she was told her son was ‘just being quiet’.

The reality TV star told her followers: ‘Had another bloody scare tonight my darlings…not felt our little man kick properly for 48 hours but everything was fine…he’s just been quiet. Thank god.’

‘Better to be safe than sorry’ she added.

The health worry comes as Charlotte, the daughter of late comedian Les Dawson, was diagnosed with pregnancy diabetes on Friday. Les also suffered from the lifelong condition.

Keeping her followers on social media up to date, she revealed: ‘My darlings I had a little mini scare… I’ve had such a smooth run pregnancy thought it was too good to be true… well apart from being soooo drained & tired. Well this explains why I have been!! I got a phone call saying I’ve got diabetes and it was really high my result, which has knocked me.

‘I know people will be like.. well your diet is horrendous you live off chips & gravehhh…yes my diet isn’t the best, but I have been trying! With my homemade soups smoothies etc but my nurse said it’s not bad diet that brings it on, but I have to cut junk out now. Which is terrifying but anything for my baby boyo.’

She went on: ‘I’m just scared. I have no other words, petrified of needles…having to jab myself 4 times a day is sooo scary. Matthew and I were so upset we thought the worst…as long as our little man is ok!’

An emotional Charlotte, who recently got engaged to Matthew, went on: ‘Some people may think it’s nothing but did upset me… I went to hospital today & they were so lovely said it’s the pregnancy diabetes but I have to be so careful because I could end up with it full time quite bad…my dad had it so thought that might have something to do with it!!

‘Anyway story time has been a bit emotional tonight my darlings… love you all happy chuffin Friday.’
