Ed Balls

Ed Balls is Charlotte's guest on the show today.

Charlotte will be talking to former Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer Ed Balls about his love of classical music, life after politics and how doing his grade one piano exam left him a nervous wreck.

He also tells Charlotte why, even though he is no longer in Parliament, he remains passionate about fighting for the cause of music education in schools.
