Charley is married to Emmerdale co-star Matthew Wolfenden.

Together they have three children: as well as baby Ace, they share Buster, nine, and Bowie, four.

There are no plans for me to return to work at the moment.

Charley's character Debbie has been off-air since August, but husband Matthew - who plays David Metcalfe - was involved in a big festive storyline.

It involved a 'who's the daddy' plot after David's paedophile ex-girlfriend Maya Stepney (Louisa Klein) dumped a newborn baby on his doorstep.

She opened up on Instagram, and said in a video: "So Bowie is starting school in September and apparently yesterday was the deadline to get your application forms in for what school you want.

"Totally missed it. Had no idea it was yesterday. I don't know how this has happened. I just cannot believe that I've missed it, I just feel like an awful mother right now.
