And Charlotte's new appearance caused quite the reaction, especially from her former Strictly Come Dancing partner Brendan Cole. After Charlotte shared a photo of herself rocking the monobrow on Instagram, Brendan joked: "I've never fancied you more!" Other celebrities were also quick to comment, with Celebrity Juice host Keith Lemon branding her: "Still fit."
The TV presenter was joined by her co-hosts Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan – who too worked the monobrow look.

However, she has also won over legions of followers for promoting body positivity.

Brendan and Charlotte were partnered together on Strictly in 2017, and have stayed good friends ever since. During an appearance on BBC Radio 5 live in January 2018, Brendan – who is married to Zoe Hobbs, spoke about the great chemistry he had with the GMB presenter. He joked about the potential of the 'Strictly curse' working on Charlotte, who is married to Mark Herbert. He said: "I'm glad to say Charlotte and I will be friends for life, she’s such a great girl and we had a lovely chemistry. Fortunately, we were both married and we didn’t run off into the sunset together - it's one of those things."
