Charley Webb has admitted she and husband Matthew Wolfenden are no longer “romantic”.

What did Charley Webb and Matthew Wolfenden say?

Speaking to OK! Magazine, Charley explained: “We’re not the most romantic couple.

“In a lot of ways, I think that’s why it works, because we don’t put any pressure on our relationship.”

Since lockdown, the couple have been busy looking after their three sons, as well as juggling work.

We’re not the most romantic couple.

In addition, Matthew said: “It is hard and we have argued. You’re bound to argue when you’re stuck in a house 24/7 with three kids and they are playing up. We’ve had our little moments but I’ve not spoken to one person who hasn’t.”

Despite some niggles, it hasn’t put the 40-year-old actor off having more children.

The pair are already parents to sons Buster, 10, Bowie, five and Ace, one.
