Who Is Allen Leech Dating? The 'Downton Abbey' Star Has An Inspirational Girlfriend In Charlie Webster
Downton Abbey fans know all about Tom Branson's love life, but what about the actor who plays the former chauffeur for the Crawley family? Who is Allen Leech dating? If you were hoping to steal the heart of the man responsible for the character who once stole the heart of Sybil Crawley, you're out of luck. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the 34-year-old actor has a girlfriend — and an inspiring one at that.
It seems that for about the past year, Leech has been dating Charlie Webster. They've made several red carpet appearances together, but Webster is not best know as just Leech's girlfriend. She is a famous sports presenter in Europe, who works for Sky Sports, a highly-recognized subscription channel throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland. In addition to appearing on camera and hosting events, she's written about sports across the Internet.
And that's just a small portion of what Webster does and who she is. She is quite an amazing and empowering woman. Admittedly, I hadn't heard of her before, but I'm very happy to be able to share just how influential she is and will probably continue to be in the future.
She Participates In Ironman Competitions
She exercises a lot, which is needed when you're competing in Ironman competitions. Based on her Twitter bio, she also loves to run and cycle. If anyone can inspire you to get fit, it's her.
She's A Spokeswoman For Skechers
Per her social media pages, Webster is an ambassador for Skechers. Seeing as she loves to run, yeah, that makes a lot of sense.
She Made TV History
In 2014, she became the first woman to host a world boxing match in Europe. She anchored Eurosport's broadcast of Wladimir Klitschko's and Alex Leapai's fight.
She Gives Back To Charity
When she has time, Webster gives back to charity. For example, in 2014 she raised money for Women's Aid in a strenuous and amazing way. Webster ran at least a marathon per day over seven days, all while running to 40 football/soccer clubs. Can you say inspiring?
She Stands Up For Sexual Assault Victims
In 2014, she opened up about being sexually assaulted at 15 years old by her running coach. Per BBC, she wanted to share her story in order to "break the taboo about abuse as a whole." Her bravery has impacted many women and now Webster stands up for all sexual assault victims. In 2014, she resigned as a patron of Sheffield United, a soccer club, due to the club allowing convicted rapist Ched Evans to return to training. Webster said, "He’s not just going into a job, he’s bandied as a role model, we cheer him on as a role model and he’s influencing the next generation of young men who are currently still making their decisions on how to treat women and what sexual mutual consent is."
She Celebrates Fearless Women
Who wouldn't want to date her?
