Charlie is living proof that you can make your dreams a reality. He started out doing deliveries at a radio station, and within four years he was helping to produce the Top 40 Show on Radio 1. However, TV remained his ultimate goal. After sending out dozens of show reels, Charlie landed his first TV job with West Country Television. In 2001, he arrived at QVC, where he finds that his easy-going style is perfectly suited to the diverse range of programmes.
