Foundation set up in memory of former Take Me Out star

Charlie Watkins

He was a good looking and intelligent former student who had charmed contestants and viewers on the dating show Take Me Out.

But beneath that confident exterior, 22-year-old Charlie Watkins was struggling with long standing mental health issues. Tragically, a year ago Charlie took his own life.

It was a devastating blow which prompted his twin brother, Harry, to set up a foundation in his name.

Charlie's heartbroken friends at the University of York are acting to make sure other students facing mental anguish can get the help they need.
