She divulged: “On the last night she said some lovely words and said how proud my dad would be of me and how lovely I’ve turned out to be.
“When she saw me the first night I think she was thinking oh god because I was burping and all of that but by the end of it she was looking after me and was so lovely, she definitely took me under her wing.
“I spoke with her about my dad a lot and I felt really so much closer to him being around Debbie.”
Charlotte added: “She had such lovely stories and she’s worked with him and it’s so nice to hear those stories coming from someone who knew him so well.”
Celebrity Christmas Come Dine With Me continues tonight at 7.30pm on E4.
