Numbers 21 - 25

To embrace turning 30 Charlie is doing a '30 before 30' list.

Here are numbers 21 to 25.

21. Watch the Godfather movies

Charlie has never seen these three famous films, so one morning James gave Charlie the trilogy to watch...we hope she has at least started watching them...there are over 9 hours of them!


22 Bake for someone I care about

Lots of Charlie's friends have started baking cakes, but Charlie is pretty rubbish at anything domesticated.  She did however find a microwave recipe for a 'cake in a cup'. She really wanted to bake for someone special, and who could be more special than James?!  So the 'cake in the cup' was baked in the microwave in the studio - and it wasn't a bad effort!

23. Dress up like Olivia Newton John and James as John Travolta and do karaoke

This was the final one Charlie did on her 30th Birthday show - and the whole of Heart Breakfast helped - James, Claire from News and Producer Matt dressed as the Grease stars and 'sang'?! Summer nights, watch the video from the Heart studios and listen to how it sounded as Charlie completed her 30 before 30 list

24. Be a town crier in a Kent town with James

Thank you to Robin the Town Crier of Rochester City who let Charlie (and James) borrow his bell (coats and hats) to become Town Criers for the day in the Medway town. See all the photos at the bottom of this page.

25. Pitch an idea to a Dragon

As James and Charlie are big fans of Dragon's Den - this had to be one on the list.  What better to pitch than Charlie 'Body Brolly' invention? 

Well, Duncan Bannatyne wasn't a fan of the idea - we can't see why and said he was 'Out'.  Check out the magnificent invention below.
