“I need an improvement, I need a better week, what are you dancing this week?” he asked her
“Well we’ve got the movie week coming up this week”, she began, “so I am doing the tango.” Morgan’s co-presenter Susanna Reid attempted to show some support for Hawkins with a “yay!” but Morgan pressed her further.

Here’s hoping Charlotte has better luck next weekend.
