EMMERDALE’S Charley Webb has revealed her struggle homeschooling three “feral” boys in lockdown.
The Debbie Dingle actress, 32, opened up about juggling looking after the children in lockdown with her recent return to he ITV soap.
Speaking on Loose Women, the actress said: “My kids are feral. They aren’t like these cute little boys that play around with toys. They’re feral.”
Opening up about how she and Matthew manage while both being actors on the same set with three children, Charley said it helps that they do not film many scenes together.
She continued: “I think to be honest when we’re filming, we’re separate. So it kind of works that when he’s filming, I’m not.
“We’ve just started our own business so we’re not giving ourselves any breaks.”
The actress – who has played man-eater Debbie Dingle for 18 years – is mother to Buster, 10, Bowie, four, and Ace, one.
She recently revealed to The Sun that she doesn’t let her kids watch her character’s antics on screen.
Viewers have watched Debbie take part in the village’s steamiest and most dramatic storylines over the years.
There was an ill-fated affair with scheming step-brother Joe Tate, her twisted romance with serial killer Cameron Murray and her lesbian love trysts with Jenna Coleman’s Jasmine Thomas.
Debbie was also at the centre of the soap’s most controversial storyline when she paid a thug to throw acid at her ex Joe’s face – but it permanently disfigured Ross Barton instead.
Speaking to The Sun about her return, she said: “As the kids are young, I don’t let the kids watch it really so I’ll have to catch up a few days later.
“Bowie’s still a bit young to understand so we never have it on when they’re around.”
Debbie Dingle has finally returned to the village following Charley’s maternity leave for son Ace.
