Carly Fleischmann is an author who is well on the way to realising her dream of hosting her own talk show.

She’s 21, boasts an IQ above 120, and has severe autism and an oral motor condition that prevents her from speaking.

Instead, Carly communicates through an ipad that vocalises what she types and with the use of that, she’s produced her debut YouTube show, Speechless with Carly Fleischmann.

The first episode has just been released and sees her interview Hollywood hunk Channing Tatum.

It doesn't take long for him to be completely won over by her charm and opening joke that “he will soon leave his wife to be with me”.

The pair discuss dating, fairies and Channing's stripper past among other things before Carly reveals, "One of the hardest and scariest moments of my life is sitting next to you and wanting to find out if my dream of being a talk show host is going to turn into a reality".

She needn't have been worried however as the Magic Mike star even invited her over for a swim afterwards.
