Charley Webb, who plays Debbie Dingle in Emmerdale, has admitted she feels like an “awful mother” after missing the school application deadline for her son Bowie.
The mum of three spoke on her Instagram story about the situation saying: “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.
“Has anybody else missed the deadline? I just want someone to tell me yes just so we can be in the same boat.
“But anyway it’s just a much longer process apparently if you miss it.”
Charley continued: “I just cannot believe that I’ve done that. January just feels like you just get over Christmas and then like two weeks later you have to have thought about what school you want them in.
“I mean obviously I want him to go to the same school as Buster but you know to me it just feels so quick. Anyway, hashtag bad mother.”
Bowie is Charley’s middle child, who turned four last month. She is also mum to nine-year-old Buster and Ace, who is nearly six months old.

I don’t often manage to get a picture of all 3. It’s my favourite one yet. I’ve found the jump from 2 to 3 huge and I don’t mind saying it. I think sometimes people aren’t honest enough about how full on it is. With one, two, three, four, however many you’ve got. It’s ok to admit that being a Mum (or a Dad) is a really hard job. Harder than any other in my opinion. I often look at peoples Instagrams and think how perfect their life looks. It won’t be. Just like mine isn’t. Looking at this picture you’d think we were out having a lovely peaceful, family walk. We were, but….Bowie had a full on meltdown after this because he didn’t want me to ‘picture him’ (that’s what he says). Luckily, it was early and it didn’t stress me out. We were outside in the fresh air and we got on with the day. He got over it. Just reminded me to look at a photograph and think about the bigger picture. No ones life is ever perfect and no kid is ever perfect all the time. Xx
Charley is married to Emmerdale co-star Matthew Wolfenden, who plays David Metcalfe.
Currently Charley is on maternity leave from the show.
Whilst Charley is away from the soap, her alter ego Debbie moved up to Scotland to run a garage she was left by family member Lisa Dingle.
However Debbie’s teenage daughter Sarah didn’t want to go with her and ended up staying in the village.
Recently he lied to Sarah that her losing some of his pills meant people were after him and pretended he had been beaten up.
But she soon found out that Danny had lied to her about being beaten up and reported him to the police and he was soon caught.
