Megan’s stepmother and Chris’s partner is Charlotte Corney. She is the director of Isle of Wight Zoo.

Charlotte was exposed to wildlife from a young age after her parents Jack and Judith bought the zoo back in 1976. Her father used to own an engineering company but was a keen animal enthusiast as well.

Charlotte took over the zoo after her father passed away in 2003.

Since its first establishment, Charlotte and her family have looked after a range of species, including lemurs, elephants, tigers and lions.
