The actress played Debbie Dingle in Emmerdale

She posted a bleary-eyed photo from her bedroom and wrote over the top: “I’ve been ill since Sunday. The nausea was so bad and I was absolutely wiped out.

“It went away and then came back. Anyone else had this? This is my ‘I’m ill face, feel sorry for me.'”

Charley later said she’d had dozens of people replying to her post and saying they had experienced the same symptoms.

The mum-of-three is married to her former Emmerdale co-star Matthew Wolfenden.

Her brother is actor Jamie Lomas, who fans will know for playing Warren Fox in Hollyoaks.

Charley recently paid tribute to their mother, after she emotionally revealed her mum’s devastating diagnosis after eight years.

The Debbie Dingle star took to Instagram on Mother’s Day in March and shared a photo with her mum taken on her wedding day.

Charley revealed her “lovely” mum was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2015 at the age of 64.

The 35-year-old wrote: “In 2015, our lovely Mum was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. She was 64.

“This last 8 years have been a learning curve, a grieving process and something all of her children have struggled with.

“Every day is a challenge and brings difficulties which are really hard to come to terms with.”

She added: “8 years later we finally feel ready to talk about it and the goal is to raise as much money and awareness as possible, to be able to help everyone that may face this in the future.

“Even though she’s still here, I miss her. Always my Queen, HM’sD, love you Mama.”

One fan commented: “It’s the cruelest disease, I’m so sorry, I used to work in a dementia home and it broke my heart for the families, treasure your memories, sending love to you all.”

Another wrote: “So young. My Mam has Alzheimer’s and it’s so heartbreaking to watch them change.”

A third penned: “Oh my gosh, so heartbreaking and so inspirational too. Sending you lots of love.”
