WATCH: Charlotte apologises after fixing her make-up on air

Apologising for the error, she said: "So sorry. No, I didn't realise we were on air... Anyway, I was just doing my own make-up because obviously we don't have make-up people in the studio... So I was just doing a quick top-up when I thought no one was looking. Turns out, the whole nation's watching!"
