Charley who is very responsive with her fans, recently conducted a Q&A in her Instagram stories where her followers were able to ask her questions about her personal life.

The soap star answered questions about how her eldest son Buster is settling in at secondary school and what her thoughts would be should any of the children wish to pursue a career in acting.

One fan asked: “Hi Charley. How is Buster settling in at high school?”

The 33-year-old responded: “He’s taking it in his stride but it’s a huge change. His old primary school, where Bowie goes now, is gorgeous. It’s such a nurturing environment, so Buster had to become a mini adult overnight for high school. I think we forget he’s only 11, he’s still a baby really.”

Another follower asked the actress: “What do you think of him following you and your hubby Matthew Wolfenden into the entertainment industry?”

Charley said: “I’ve always been very honest with Buster that it’s not an easy industry and it’s not the industry I would choose for my children. But at the same time, you have to let them do what they want.

“We just have to guide him. It was in my blood, I knew I wanted to be an actress since I was eight so it would be cruel to prevent him following his dreams.”

While one person asked: “Do you think your younger sons Bowie and Ace will follow?”

The star answered: “Bowie’s not interested in acting, singing or dancing in the slightest – he’s quite shy. Ace is too young for us to know, but they’re all great. My house is very loud, I go to their friends’ houses and they’re much more controlled than mine!”

“How is Bowie doing at school?” asked another follower.

The devoted mum said: “He’s just gone into year one – he’s making his little friendships and it’s good for him. The social side is amazing for them and they need that as children.”

The popular soap star recently gave fans a glimmer into her daily “chaotic life” with three children when her youngest son Ace flooded the downstairs bathroom.

Charley shared the mishap that she described as “horrendous chaos” with her Instagram followers in a hilarious Instagram story in which she explained the two-year-old had been washed his hands after using the downstairs toilet and she hadn’t realised he had not turned off the tap.
