And last but not least… Charlotte Hawkins Paton of Kent-based charity ellenor & ITV’s Good Morning Britain presenter


NDEX caught up for an exclusive chat with ITV’s Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins when she popped into Royal Victoria Place in Tunbridge Wells, with her three-year-old daughter Ella Rose and husband Mark, to support the Teddy Selfi e Campaign, taking place at the West Kent shopping centre in support of local charity ellenor, which provides the best care and support for families facing terminal illness.


I


Charlotte, who fi rst started working for the charity several years ago, said: “I went to visit the hospice and met the families for myself that were being helped by ellenor and I saw the real difference that their care made and the fact that they, wherever they can, will try to treat the children in their own homes is something really special. I think it’s really about making sure that the time they have left is quality time that they can spend with their family.”


Up four mornings a week at 3am to present Good Morning Britain – as if that in itself is not enough to warrant such an honour! – Charlotte is very thankful for the hair and


make-up department, which “weave their magic and make


sure we are looking bright eyed and bushy tailed as soon as we sit down”.


Looking to 2019, does the


43-year-old presenter make New Year


resolutions? “I have a recurring New


Year resolution to try to be more organised, to deal with things straightaway rather than adding them to my endless ‘to do list’. I kind of think with New Year resolutions that they are easy to make – and also easy to break, so if I am going to make them, I try to make them ones I will actually keep!


“This year though I’m trying to think not just about fi tness as in going to the gym but


I THINK WE ALL GET CAUGHT UP IN OUR WORKING LIVES


AND YOU JUST FEEL YOU HAVEN’T GOT


ENOUGH TIME TO CRAM EVERYTHING IN


also think what kind of changes I can make in my life to make sure I’m healthier and happier, spending less time on social media and looking at my phone, trying to focus on spending more quality time with my family. I think we all get caught up in our working lives and you just feel you haven’t got enough time to cram everything in. And that’s the stuff that goes, the stuff that you think you can do without, but actually, for our sanity, that’s the really important bit. So my New Year resolution this year is to try to regain a little bit more of that balance.”
