Having continued to work on both GMB and Classic FM throughout the coronavirus lockdown, Charlotte will no doubt be enjoying a well-deserved Christmas break at home with her daughter and her husband Mark Herbert. 

The trio appear to be incredibly close, and back in May the family hosted their own special VE Day party in their garden, complete with Union Jack flags, celebratory drinks and a night of camping outdoors, as suggested by little Ella. "This is our specially decorated back garden tent... the HRH in our family has decided we are all camping out tonight to mark the occasion!" Charlotte explained on Instagram.

At the beginning of May, Charlotte opened up about how lockdown has been for the family, with the presenter revealing her home-schooling struggles to Gareth Malone whilst taking part in his Great British Home Chorus live on YouTube. "It's a little bit crazy, I have to say. It's a bit unsettling not being able to see friends and family, obviously everyone is going through that," she said. "Home schooling a five-year-old is a whole new challenge in itself. It's a crazy world, it's full on, insistent questions."
