The Traitors star Charlotte Chilton has announced the happy news she is pregnant after going through seven miscarriages and being told ‘it probably won’t happen’.

The Faithful was banished during the second season of Claudia Winkleman’s murder mystery gameshow, which saw Traitor Harry Clark walk away with £95,150.

Sharing a series of snaps of her growing baby bump and an ultrasound scan, Charlotte wrote on Instagram on Wednesday: ‘So I have been keeping a secret in a few of my pics !! The true glory is in my final pic!!!

‘After 7 miscarriages over my 20s, failed Insemination, failed IVF I was told It probably won’t happen for you”.

‘These words for a lot of woman, are the words you never want to hear! Yet someone decided I deserved a wish answering and I am now going to have my own little miracle.’

She went on: ‘It was a rough start (never knew sickness could be so bad) but I’m starting to feel normal again!!

‘I wanted to share this with all my family, friends and #thetraitors fan base!! It’s been a shock to say the least but the most welcomed surprise ever!!!’

Amongst those sharing their congratulations, host Claudia commented some hearts as fans rushed to support the star.

32-year-old Charlotte previously told about her agonising health condition known as the ‘suicide disease’, which resulted in her ‘missing out on a lot of things in life’.

She opened up about having a ‘terrible time’ while undergoing brain surgeries in her twenties, after being diagnosed with a condition called trigeminal neuralgia.

The charity Trigeminal Neuralgia UK outlines that the condition is ‘sudden, severe, brief, stabbing pain occurring in attacks lasting at the most a few seconds usually only on one side of the face and provoked by light touch’, adding that it’s described as being ‘the worst pain known to man’.

Charlotte heartbreakingly shared that when she was suffering from excruciating pain, she ‘didn’t want to live anymore’.

She explained: ‘You don’t know when you’re going to have your next pain and when you do have your pain, it can be managed sometimes with painkillers or it can be to a point you’re screaming, you want to stick a knife in your face because it’s unbearable.

‘It’s actually known as the “suicide disease” because it has such a high percentage of people who [die by] suicide because it’s just agony. It’s the worst pain condition you can have.’

After feeling like she was ‘missing out on a lot of things in life’, Charlotte was left feeling like she ‘didn’t want to live anymore’ and was ‘at [her] worst’ when her partner urged a leading surgeon to take her on as a patient, but following him ‘fixing’ her, Charlotte was involved in a car accident so had to undergo surgery again, and the recovery was ‘a lot worse’.

She had to learn how to eat, talk and walk again, and work on her coordination in her recovery, and told us that she ‘still gets pains’ to this day.

‘I can’t let it rule me,’ she said of her agonising diagnosis (Picture: BBC)

‘But what I do know is that I can’t let it rule me. I can’t live in fear. I’ve lived in fear for 10 years. This is my 30s. We got over Covid, I’m gonna seize the day and push myself and that’s what I’ve done,’ she vowed.

By coming on The Traitors, Charlotte wanted to show people that no matter what they’re going through, ‘you can’t let it rule what you want to do – you’ve got to go for it’.

The Traitors is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
