Charlotte Hawkins almost had a nightmare start to the week when she told Good Morning Britain viewers how she was left almost “half-undressed.”
With Kate Garraway taking some time off the ITV breakfast show, 45-year-old Charlotte has stepped up to take over the presenting reigns at the beginning of the week, alongside Adil Ray.
She was immediately jibed by Adil after she had a nightmare with footwear last week, which left her wearing odd shoes.
Now social distancing rules had almost put paid to her being dressed in time for the cameras rolling at 6am.
The show began with Adil looking down under the presenter’s desk with Charlotte asking: “Is this going to be the usual start every time we work together?”
She continued: “Just because of one small mistake I made.”
Adil said: “I am just helping out here. Just ensuring that Charlotte Hawkins has the right pair of shoes on.”
Showing a pic of Charlotte’s shoe trouble in which she shows off wearing two different pink high heels, Adil added: “That’s a piece of art now.”
Charlotte explained: “I tried on three different pairs of shoes one day and forgot to change into a matching pair and not lived it down since.
“Just goes to show that without a stylist on hand we can literally not dress ourselves.”
This was small fry compared to what she had to put up with on Monday morning when Charlotte’s dressing troubles increased.
She revealed: “I couldn’t get my zip done and I was literally half-dressed this morning.”
Charlotte continued to say that it took a “little bit of wriggling” to ensure she was fully attired for the show.
Social distancing meant that any assistants “couldn’t get anywhere near me and I was left high and dry…
“The things we have to go through to get the programme. It’s not the hardest job in the world is it, getting your own clothes and shoes on.”
Fortunately for Charlotte, this was a task she was finally able to complete.
