A memorial for media personality Charlotte Dawson will be held in Sydney.

Dawson’s family and friends will celebrate the charismatic TV presenter’s life on Friday at The Beresford Hotel in inner city Surry Hills.

New Zealand-born Dawson, 47, was found dead in her apartment at Woolloomooloo in Sydney on Saturday after apparently taking her own life.

The former model had suffered depression and in 2012 was hospitalised after being bombarded with vicious Twitter messages.

Dawson often appeared on morning and breakfast television shows, most recently the Nine Network’s Morning Show on Friday.
