Charley is a doting mum to three sons

Charley is a doting mum but was forced to defend her decision to keep her sons' hair long after getting a lot of comments from fellow parents on social media, who had told her that they should get their hair cut. The mother-of-three shared a gorgeous photo of Buster wearing a T-shirt reading: "Long hair. Don't care, boy," to accompany her message, which read: "I get asked so many times on here why my kids have got long hair. ‘Why don’t you cut it?’ Or, ‘they look like girls’. The answer is really simple, because we like it and more importantly they like it."

The star continued: "I absolutely don't feel like I need to explain it to anyone who has an opinion but I just think life would be so much easier if we all just focused on our own lives. Don't let my kids' hair worry you. I think people think they have a right to have an opinion because of social media. Maybe you do. But try keeping it to yourself, it’s not important to us what you think of how our kids look. Or how we look. Or their names or whatever it is you might want to comment on. I was always taught, if you’ve got nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Try practicing it peeps. There's enough awful stuff in the world without being mean to each other. They’ve got another T-shirt that says, I'm a boy, I’ve just got better hair than you. True dat."
