From TikToks to building fortresses in the woods, they are definitely an active family.

However, Charley admitted to OK! magazine that the coronavirus pandemic has caused her crippling anxiety.

She told the mag: “I’ve had terrible health anxiety. At the start it was really bad because I’d be constantly on my phone reading about the virus or watching the news to the point I couldn’t stop crying.

“Matthew told me I had to stop reading about it. In the end, I had to completely stop watching the news. Now I limit myself.”

And while Matthew has returned to set on Emmerdale, Charley remains at home.

The actress left the soap for maternity leave last summer, and she has said she has no plans to return to the soap.

She first joined back in 2002, and said she now wants to focus on her family.

At the launch of Inflata Nation Peterborough back in January she said: “I’m still on maternity leave at the moment. It’s been good but three kids is a different ball game.

“It’s been really good fun, but there are no plans for me to return to work at the moment.”
