Charlotte Hawkins first found telly fame through Meridian Tonight in 2003 and went on to host Sky's show Sunrise with Eamonn Holmes in 2006. After occasional appearances on This Morning as a reviewer, she then returned to ITV in 2014 when Good Morning Britain was launched, alongside the other three main hosts Susanna Reid, Ben Shephard and Sean Fletcher. Nowadays, GMB staff switch-ups mean she's more likely to co-host with Kate Garraway as well as Susanna and Ben, plus the occasional guest host like Ed Balls and Robert Rinder. Born in the West Sussex village of Chichester, Charlotte now lives with her husband Mark Herbert and their daughter Ella Rose in Surrey. The newsreader tends to keep her home life as private as possible, but from the cosy living room to the spacious garden, she has unveiled a handful of areas inside the property on her Instagram.
