Her career began when she bagged herself a role as a newsreader for ITN in 1999. Around the same time, she snagged a job working as a reporter for LBC radio.

Charlotte’s TV career began in 2003 when she worked on Meridian Tonight in 2003. She eventually then went on to host the Sky series Sunrise with This Morning star Eamonn Holmes in 2006.

During this time she would occasionally pop into This Morning as a reviewer.

In 2014, she scored herself a starring role on Good Morning Britain.

In 2017, Charlotte famously appeared on Strictly Come Dancing.

She was paired with Brendan Cole for what would become his final season.

However, Charlotte’s dancing wasn’t particularly liked by some of the judges. As a result, it sparked several rows on-air between them and Brendan.

At the time, Charlotte said: “I hope it was nothing to do with me. It’s a BBC decision. I think it’s really sad. He’s been there from the start and done 15 series.

“He is the one that spoke his mind. He did have my back when the judges were being harsh during criticisms.”

In 2018, she took part in the BBC vs ITV Sport Relief rowing show.

She appeared alongside her teammates Ferne McCann, Nicola Thorp, Chris Bisson, Jake Canuso and Love Island star Chris Hughes.
