"Oh my word, it’s so painful," the Debbie Dingle actress told her followers.

She also gave some background to the accident, saying: "I was driving home yesterday and somebody smashed into the back of my car on the motorway."

Charley went on: "I was still, there had been a traffic jam and the girl was really apologetic, bless her, but I’d been stationary for quite a while so she obviously wasn’t concentrating or watching where she was going because she came right into the back of me.

"And it wasn’t actually that big of an impact - I didn’t jerk forward or anything. It's just people not concentrating on what they're doing."

The star's relief at none of her children having been injured was obvious, and her followers will no doubt have been relieved, too.

Charley has picked up a loyal following on social media for her down-to-earth approach to the ups and downs of parenthood.
