Charlotte’s academic background, includes a post-grad diploma in Broadcast Journalism from Manchester University, which was the foundations of her career in broadcast. Reporting for a range of news programmes, including ITN and LBC Radio, she has co-anchored and hosted a number of shows. She worked at Sky News for seven years with Eamonn Holmes, fellow Strictly contestant - Ruth Langsford’s husband. Who will he be cheering along from the stalls?

During her career, she’s interviewed the likes of David Beckham, Oprah Winfrey and Sir Paul McCartney. Not a stranger to the red carpet, after hosting Sky News’ BAFTA’s show and The Oscars in LA, it’s time for her to hit the red carpet again, but this time she’ll be coated in sequins!

Alongside her busy schedule both in front of the camera and with her husband and daughter, she still makes time to support several charities and is a Patron of Motor Neurone Disease Association.
