Charley Webb has been busy preparing to send her sons Buster and Bowie back to school for the first time since lockdown began in March – but it doesn't appear to be going smoothly.

The Emmerdale actress revealed on her Instagram Story on Wednesday that she has suffered a few last-minute hiccups after forgetting to buy her eldest son's school shoes and ordering the wrong name tags for their school clothes.

Speaking into the camera, Charley sarcastically said: "So in terms of school stuff, it's going really well..."

She added: "I forgot to get Buster's school shoes (but) I managed to get them as I ordered them online because when I went in they didn't have any in his size.

"Got the labels with their names on to put in all their clothes – they arrived today and they're not for clothes. They don't go into clothes. They only stick on lunchboxes, water bottles – anything but clothes…" Nightmare!

Buster and Bowie aren't due back to school until later this month, but last week, Charley admitted she was "nervous" about her two boys going back.

Sitting in a café as she spoke to the camera, the mother-of-three explained: "My whole feed is filled with kids going back to school. Mine aren't going back anywhere near yet.

"I think Buster's got another week and a bit, and Bowie's got two weeks until his first day. I'm so confused why we're so behind."

The 32-year-old actress then added that she was in no rush to see her lads back in the classroom, admitting: "Not that I'm complaining, because I'm still feeling quite nervous actually. But yeah, it's just weird that everyone's kids are going back to school."

Charley shares three sons with her husband Matthew Wolfenden: Buster, ten, Bowie, four, and little Ace, who turned one in July.
