Charlotte Hawkins revealed her daughter wants to throw away her own sixth birthday this weekend while she can’t celebrate with her friends in lockdown.
During today’s Good Morning Britain, Charlotte, 45, told Ben Shephard, 46, about Ella Rose’s gut-wrenching request while discussing an inspired project, which saw key workers have their post-lockdown bucket list drawn up into a work of art framed in a bottle.
And Ella Rose is already looking ahead to the day when the country’s restrictions are lifted and is dead set on getting away.
‘Well, my Bottle Moment was being reunited with my family down in Port Isaac in Cornwall where we all think of as home,’ explained Ben.
Looking at a picture of his post-lockdown dream, he continued: ‘That’s us sharing that hug we are desperately missing, although none of my family will claim to be the bald man at the front, my brother certainly won’t have that one!
‘But every member of my family now has this picture in a prominent place and we can’t wait to recreate it.’
Charlotte said she just wanted a beach holiday with her daughter, ‘sandcastles and all’.
‘She has got a birthday coming up this weekend, and I asked her what she wanted for her birthday,’ Charlotte told her co-host.
‘And she said, “Mummy, can I throw away my birthday and have a holiday instead?”’
Charlotte was kept from her daughter, having to self-isolate for 10 days after coming into contact with someone who tested positive from Covid-19.
On her return to Good Morning Britain, however, the former Strictly star revealed she’s been inundated with trolls attacking her for being able to isolate.
‘There were a lot of people getting in touch with me yesterday on Twitter who were saying, “it’s okay for you in your position, you’ll get paid, you can afford to self-isolate”,’ Charlotte told Susanna Reid on Wednesday.
‘Yeah, I know I’m in a fortunate position. I was told by my work to self-isolate and therefore it was straightforward for me to do it, but it is a legal requirement.
‘If you test positive or if you’re contacted by NHS test and trace and told to self-isolate, it is a legal requirement for you to do it. And also, you don’t want to put people at risk.’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
