A breast cancer survivor from the Isle of Wight is among 20 women hoping to pip Dua Lipa and The Beatles to top spot in the charts and take Christmas number one.

Charlotte Kitteridge, who is originally from East Cowes, is part of TV presenter Lorraine Kelly's Check + Change campaign choir.

The group have just released song Golden with Grammy award winner, Joss Stone.

The presenter's trailblazing campaign, which is in its fifth year, aims to raise awareness of breast cancer.

Charlotte joined in 2020 after a post on the presenter's Instagram inspired her to check herself.

"In her feed she was showcasing the importance of checking your boobs and pecs", she said.

"On the leaflet I saw a shooting pain symptom that I’d been having on and off for months and put it down to hormonal changes.

"The next morning I checked in the shower and found a lump."

After being diagnosed with the illness, she was referred to the breast care clinic and had surgery and later radiotherapy.

"Because they caught the cancer early, after tests I didn’t need chemo and was back to work five months later", she said.

"It saved my life and it had spread to my lymph nodes. If I’d not checked it at that point things could have been a different story. "

Three years on, Charlotte and her fellow group members have released song Golden, which is dedicated to Lorraine producer, Hannah Hawkins, who recently died from the disease.

The choir performed the song live on ITV show Lorraine earlier this week.

It is currently number three in the Capital top 40 UK Charts, behind Dua Lipa and The Beatles.

But, with a little help from Islanders, Charlotte, who now lives in London, is hoping to get it to number one.

All profits from downloads go to breast cancer charity, The Future Dreams.
