Helen went on to talk about how her son had an accident while at the water park. “To make a long story short, Charlie slipped, really, really bad and it was horrible, absolutely horrible and I had to call an ambulance and he broke his clavicle in two. It was horrible, so I spent like six hours in the hospital. in Stoke”.
He added: “I’d like to say thank you to the paramedics, the doctors and the nurses who were amazing so thank you very much. That was horrible, it’s horrible, horrible, horrible to listen to your son in pain. It’s just horrendous, but he “It’s fine. There’s really not much you can do for it. Apparently it heals itself, but it’s horrible when you’re a mother and you just wish you could take all the pain away.”
She also wrote: “He’s fine bless him x Just lots of love, attention and hair watching him like a hawk x.” Helen also revealed that the accident happened the day before she was taking her eldest daughter, Matilda, to Paris on what was to be a girls’ trip. “I promised Matilda for months, she always wanted to go to Paris and I didn’t want to disappoint her.”

Later, she showed some pictures of the boy standing by the Eiffel Tower and wrote next to them: “Charlie has been amazing bless him he is so brave x at the Eiffel Tower today.”
