She’s pulled out all the stops with her outfit choices so far at Royal Ascot.

Adding even more colour to the look, Charlotte opted for a hot pink floral fascinator and boosted her frame with fuchsia high heels.

Ensuring everyone would get a good look at her ensemble, the blonde bombshell picked up her skirt and twirled while milling  around the concourse. 

The ITV racing host has worn a number of demure yet eye-catching outfits to the sporting event this week.

Charlotte took to Instagram on Wednesday to say how much she loved her job, and added that her outfits were ‘all in a day’s work’, as she thanked her stylist Sophie Kirkwood. 

Charlotte was also pictured with Mark Heyes who has a fashion segment on Lorraine.

Posting on Instagram, Mark expressed how much he was enjoying himself, writing: ‘It’s day 2 of Royal Ascot and it’s already turning out to be a cracker!!

‘How gorgeous does my @charlottehawkins1 look. Loving my @mossbros waistcoat, tie and hanky combo and of course my @shopoliverbrown top hat and tails.’ 

He also shared a fun video drinking an espresso martini with Charlotte, saying: ‘It’s a daily drink time, that’s right, what are we having today Charlotte?’ to which she replied: ‘Espresso martinis! That will put a spring in our step, cheers!’

Royal Ascot is part of a list of pilot events taking place, allowing 12,000 revellers to attend, before the possible lifting of all measures to curtail the Covid-19 pandemic in July.

Earlier this month, The Telegraph reported the Queen, 95, – an avid horse racing fan – would not attend this year’s Ascot because of ongoing restrictions.

Ascot had been planning for an attendance of 4,000 a day. The new figure will allow all those who rolled over 2020 bookings to be accommodated with a ‘material but not significant’ number of tickets left over, according to a track spokesperson.

The number of spectators will be well below the usual attendance of over 300,000 over the five days but the increased number was welcomed by Frankie Dettori, whose 73 royal meeting victories have only been bettered by Lester Piggott (116).

Dettori, who was leading rider at the royal meeting for the seventh time last year, said: ‘There’s nothing better than Royal Ascot with people. I know it’s not 60,000 (a day) but it’s better than what we thought.

‘Last year I was leading rider at Royal Ascot and won three Group Ones, including the Gold Cup. To have nobody there to see any of that, it was like someone had cut my arm off.

‘Those are the biggest races we’ve got here and I won them in front of empty grandstands. It goes without saying it wasn’t the same.’

And they’re off! Charlotte got off to a great start with her style on day one of Ascot on Tuesday, wearing a satin white and yellow dress with a matching fascinator hat
