Last year, the performer landed a role as a pit reporter for the Repco Supercars Championships, and defended her position as a female in the role.

‘You don’t need anybody telling you that you don’t know about cars and that you don’t know about motorsport because you are female,’ she told Supercars.com.  

‘These women know their stuff. I think coming into the industry, you just need to be strong as a woman and realise people are going to say a lot of crap about you but that is only because they don’t know you.’

She added: ‘I am also a believer of the best person for the job. I am not saying that we need to put women in just to have 50/50 split of men and women.  

Charli is married to V8 Supercars driver Liam Talbot and the couple share two daughters: Theadora, two, and Kensington, three.
