Emmerdale’s Charley Webb reveals ‘terrible parenting’ mistake that nearly cost son his school place


EMMERDALE star Charley Webb has revealed her “terrible parenting” mistake that nearly cost her 10-year-old on Buster his spot at secondary school.

The 33-year-old star opened up about the blunder on her Instagram page – asking fans: “What is wrong with me?”

Visibly mortified, the Debbie Dingle actress shared: “So mother of the year continues on the school front.

“Got a phonecall on Thursday saying: ‘Hi, we haven’t heard about Buster and his school place and if he wants it and the deadline was today’.”

Looking exasperated Charley continued: “When we got the letter, I read the first sentence that said he got in and got so over excited that I didn’t then go back and re-read the letter.

“Because I was so overly happy that we didn’t have to appeal, I just failed to store the information in my brain – so he nearly lost his place!”

The busy working mum went on to add that it is hard to secure a high school in her local area, and that she’d have been at a loss if Buster had lost his spot.

She shared: “The schools around where we live are so difficult to get into so I don’t know what I would have done.

“What is wrong with me? I don’t know to keep information in my brain. Just terrible parenting.”

Buster is Charley’s oldest child with husband Matthew Wolfenden, with the pair also mum and dad to five-year-old Bowie, and 19-month-old Archie.

The couple have been together for 15 years after meeting on Emmerdale, where Matthew played David Metcalfe.

They tied the knot in 2018, with Charley recently admitting that after so long together they are no longer romantic with one another.
