During the latest chat, Charlotte who said she wants to offer children an alternative to private schooling to help with their festive talents also spoke about the treatment of her when when she was a young singer. 

She said: ‘There was a countdown to me losing my virginity. The Sun had done a countdown then Chris Moyles talked about it on Radio One. It was all a bit gross really. 

‘We’ve come a certain way but there’s a long way to go in terms of feminism and equality but there’s bigots everywhere and hopefully we can heal them all. Maybe some of them will just have to die out.’
