Singer, actress and presenter Charlie Raine is my guest this week. She tells me how she's battled against hearing loss since a child and how she prepares for pantomime by learning the entire script so she can lip read the other actors on stage. This is a truly inspirational story that I'm very proud to share.
Charlie is performing at The Customs House South Shields as Sniffy The Skunk, click here to book tickets https://www.customshouse.co.uk/theatre/snow-white/
