The little boy sported a striped hoodie, jeans, green boots and a blue hat pulled down over his eyes.

Bowie held on to the hat’s rim to stop it flying off as Charley’s caption revealed the sweet reason for his choice of headwear.

"Wearing Daddy’s hat because he misses him," she wrote, adding a broken heart emoji.

Little Bowie missed his dad during their brief time apart

Charley and Matthew, who also shot to fame on the ITV soap, tied the knot in 2018, eight years after welcoming their oldest son, Buster, now 11.

As well as Buster and Bowie, they are doting parents to their youngest son Ace, who is two years old.

Charley has shared some lovely insights into her family’s life during the school summer holidays, including a hilarious video last month that saw Bowie riding the waves – sort of.

Charley is a proud mum to her three children

On her Instagram Stories, the 33-year-old posted a short clip of the five-year-old sailing down a small stream in a rubber ring before it flipped over and landed him in the water.

"It's not funny mum," the youngster exclaimed as he climbed to safety but Charley couldn’t stop giggling at her son’s antics.

She captioned the video: "Wait until the end….. He was fuming that I laughed."
