Emmerdale's Charley Webb hits back at trolls who criticise her parenting

She's a great mum.

Charley Webb, Emmerdale's Debbie Dingle, has hit back at trolls who question her parenting methods.

The actress and her co-star Matthew Wolfenden recently welcomed their third child, Ace, into the world, but she says she finds it "bizarre" that some social media users feel the need to comment on how she cares for her kids.

Charley - who also has sons Buster, nine, and three-year-old Bowie with Matthew - said: "Mainly I just block it out.

"I'm not really interested in what anyone else thinks. Everyone parents differently.

"Matthew and I are big on routines, but I won't judge parents who aren't.

They think they've got a right to say things to you. They don’t!

"If you're in the public eye people think they've got a right to say things to you. They don't!"

She went on to add that people "comment just to get a response" and that she finds it "bizarre" and doesn't answer back.

Charley has encouraged mums and dads to give themselves "a break", admitting there is so much "pressure" on parenting.

She added to OK! magazine: "Every parent feels that pressure. No human can do everything, male or female.

"It's really hard.

"You feel like you should be doing it all and if you're not, you feel like you've failed. We all need to give ourselves a break."

The 31-year-old star and Matthew, 39, had a scare when Ace was born because he was struggling to breathe due to the umbilical cord being wrapped around his neck.

Matthew recently admitted it felt "like a lifetime" when the pair were waiting for Ace to start breathing even though it was "probably just seconds", and the actor nearly vomited afterwards.

He told OK!: "After I knew Ace was okay and breathing, I nearly threw up from the panic. I'd been so worried in those moments."
