Mark claimed Charli to be "shy and timid" at first. But he had hope that their bond will grow stronger with time. Mark claimed, "I knew there was something extremely special in there, which became even more apparent after our first performance." The things about Charli that impressed Mark the most were her hard work, not being on the phone while at work, and having trust in Mark's wild ideas. Mark called Charli to have a "STELLAR attitude." The professional dancer further added that Charli was not only kind to him but to his family as well. Mark ended his post on an emotional note, saying that he will be missing "daily car rides to and from practice, hitting up the McDonald’s drive-through, British Grime, and 90s Alt music." Mark ended his note saying, "I feel honored & privileged to have been your coach, partner, friend & big brother." He further claimed Charli to be the "strongest" and "quietest" person.

Ever since Season 22, his appearance was not constant on the show. He appeared in Season 25 and then in Season 31.
