TNT chats with Kiss FM Breakfast DJ Charlie Hedges about her London.
What baffles me about London is you see thousands of people every single day, and yet I’ve seen the same person twice in one day before but in a different location. What are the odds? I’ve done it a few times.
London’s best-kept secret is that it’s one of the best places in the world to be a nosy people-watcher like myself.
When I want to chill out I go to the cinema. There’s a new-ish cinema in Bayswater called The Lounge, where you can either just go and watch a film or eat and watch a movie at the same time. I only discovered it a few month ago – it’s amazing.
The most interesting person I’ve met is my Nanny Beat, she’s been here 84 years, she’s seen a lot, knows a lot and is one of life’s beautiful people.
My favourite place for a drink is anywhere along South Bank. I love anywhere you can sit outside – even if it’s cold I opt to sit outside places, wicked views and so much going on.
For when you’re hungover in London, go to any London park, take a blanket, water, some sunglasses to hide from daylight and humans and then just lay down and chill out!
What gets me up in the morning is my job. I have to be up at 3.45am to leave for 4am to present my breakfast show.
My perfect weekend would consist of waking up, have a mahhhooossive breakfast, spending some time with my family and friends and then DJing in the evening.
The last naughty thing I did was hide on the floor in my house when someone knocked on our door because I’d just jumped out of the shower so I didn’t want to answer it. I got caught out, though, when our dog barked the house down, so much so that I had to get up from my army roll position on the floor and get her to be quiet.
Five words that sum up London: Exciting, but quiet if needed.
