Oh my: Charlotte Church and her two children, Ruby and Dexter, have apparently had a close call with a “faulty boiler” in their new $2 million mansion, The Daily Mail reports. The Welsh opera star had been complaining of headaches for weeks, the British tabloid says. Thank goodness for her quick-thinking grandfather, who advised Charlotte to invest in a carbon monoxide detector. Yikes.
A source told Closer magazine: “She had no idea that the boiler was playing up.
‘When she heard the carbon monoxide alarm go off, she called in a plumber, who said her granddad saved her life.
“She is probably lucky that the house is so big and airy and the boiler is a long way from the living areas.
“But she knows she’s had a lucky escape.”
In one of Anglophenia’s Top 5 British Celebrity Breakups of 2010, Church, who is 24, split from her longtime partner, rugby player Gavin Henson, last May. He is the father of her two kids.
