Charlotte Dawson: “My home is completely trashed!”

A distraught Charlotte Dawson has returned home from Bali to find her Sydney apartment "completely trashed".

Charlotte, 47, was recharging her batteries during a healing holiday in Indonesia when her glamorous waterside apartment was wrecked during a wild, alcohol-fuelled party thrown by her housesitter.

“I am mortified,” Charlotte reveals in an exclusive interview with Woman’s Day. “I am not insured; I will have to replace all my outdoor furniture. There are holes in my wall, footprints up them, my plants are ruined.”

Before departing Sydney at Christmas, she handed over her house keys to a 21-year-old London-based model, who is also called Charlotte Dawson, the daughter of the late comedian Les Dawson. The sitter slept in Charlotte’s own bedroom.

The new friends were all smiles and hugs when photographed at Woolloomooloo Finger Wharf, the luxury spot where Charlotte rents her apartment.

But the bond, which began when the two celebrities met on Twitter, appears to be all over after Charlotte returned from her holiday yesterday to find her home in tatters.

"It's a mess,” Charlotte tells her Twitter followers. "My fault - it's the other Charlotte Dawson from the UK. Met her on twitter & let her housesit while I was away. I let a girl house sit & she threw some kind of massive party.”

Charlotte, who last week quit as a judge on Australia’s Next Top Model, says she has learned a valuable lesson about trust following the incident.

Seventy party-goers, including South Sydney Rabbitohs star George Burgess, hit the apartment on December 31 and danced late into the morning to a DJ. Strangers were being recruited from up and down the wharf to come to the party. There were media reports the following day of police being called.

Charlotte has returned from Bali to clean up the mess.

"My apartment is completely trashed,” she tweeted. “Throwing out rug, towels, linen. Floors irreparable."

A team of cleaners were hired to fix damage caused to the $2 million apartment, which is being put up for auction next week.
