Emmerdale's Charley Webb was overcome with emotion on Wednesday night when putting her kids to bed. The 31-year-old star described the exact moment it really hit her that she was mum to three beautiful boys, and took to Instagram to talk feelings with her followers. Speaking softly from her son Bowie's dimly lit bedroom, the soap stat explained: "I've just had a moment. So I've just checked on the three kids – I'm being quiet cause I'm in Bowie's bedroom. I walked across the landing and I thought 'I've got three kids,' and I literally have no idea how I've got three children. I mean obviously I do, but… It’s just those tiny moments where you just get, like, that realisation."

It’s been a busy week for Charley and her boys. On Tuesday, the mother-of-three shared a sweet snap of her three-year-old son Buster playing with Emma Atkins' – who plays her mum Charity Dingle on Emmerdale – little boy Albert. The two looked like they were having the best time at a funfair as they competed at a hook-a-duck stall. Across the picture, Charley wrote: "They hooked a duck."

The actress has been on maternity leave following the arrival of her baby son Ace in July, and has been enjoying meeting up with her Emmerdale co-stars during her time off work. As well as meeting up with Emma, Charley has also been seeing a lot of her on-screen daughter, Katy Hill, who plays Sarah Sugden in the soap. The teenager went to visit her recently and enjoyed an impromptu singing session with Charley's oldest son Buster, nine, at the kitchen room table.

In Emmerdale, Debbie has been temporarily written out, with the character having gone to Scotland to open up a garage that Lisa Dingle left her in her will.
