Alton College alumna Charlotte Bradley has won the BBC’s The One Show’s amateur painting competition.

The painting that saw Charlotte reach the top three in the competition; ‘Fred’s Wife’ was inspired by a charismatic elderly couple she saw while out in Fleet. She asked if she could take their photo but she only caught the husband’s name, Fred.
