Charlotte Leslie

Charlotte Leslie has been the Conservative MP for Bristol Northwest since 2010. Before her election, Bristol-born Charlotte was an advisor to David Willetts, then Shadow Minister for Education and Skills.

A graduate in Classics from Oxford University, Charlotte has an appropriately wide range of interests to show for her Classical education: she serves on the All Party Parliamentary Groups for Skills, Surgical Skills, Autism, Boxing, and best of all Beer. Perhaps her interest in beer stems from teenage years spent as a surf lifeguard in Cornwall.

But for Charlotte Free Speech is a return to her TV roots - her first career was as a BBC researcher on travel programmes and The Weakest Link.

So she’s survived Anne Robinson, but how will Charlotte fare with Rick Edwards?
