The hit presenter of ITV’s breakfast show Good Morning Britain, following a fruitful spell on Sky News, Charlotte Hawkins is one of the UK’s most versatile and natural host and conference facilitator. Covering some of the biggest stories of the last two decades, often live on location, the nation’s morning bowl of cereal would be much less satisfying without Charlotte’s sprinkling of gritty news first thing.
The hit host of ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Charlotte Hawkins has been egging on change in breakfast television; her time on the programme has kicked presenters off the old-fashioned ‘sofa setting’ to inject a shot of hard-hitting news into viewers’ morning coffees.
After graduating from Manchester University with a degree in English Language and Literature, Charlotte completed a postgraduate diploma in Broadcast Journalism. From here, she went on to join ITN Radio, where she was one of the first journalists at the Paddington rail crash, reporting live from the scene.
Moving onto ITV Meridian, Charlotte co-hosted the current affairs discussion series The Big Story and, often live on location, co-presented Meridian Tonight in the South East, most notably from Tonbridge the day after the multi-million pound cash robbery.
During a successful spell on Sky News’s Sunrise from 2007 to 2014, she covered several major breaking stories; including the developing flight disruption due to volcanic ash, the on-going Middle East conflicts, and the guilty verdict in the Josef Fritzl trial.
Charlotte has also covered Five News' flagship show and appeared on ITV1's This Morning as a news reviewer.
Her interview portfolio glimmers with the names of stars including Will Smith, Matt Damon, Johnny Depp, Russell Crowe, Renee Zellweger and Cameron Diaz, having covered the Baftas and reported from the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in LA. Charlotte has presented both The London Boat Show and The Southampton Boat Show, and is a keen contributor to Sussex Life magazine.
The nation has grown accustomed to Charlotte’s personable style and easy going manner. Her amiable nature and exhaustive experience presenting the news makes her one of the UK’s most versatile and natural host and conference facilitator for corporate audiences.
