The Emmerdale actress took to Instagram Stories on Monday night to reveal herself, husband Matthew Wolfenden and Buster, 10, are having to make the decision based on virtual tours – likely due to the coronavirus outbreak.

"The thought of him going to high school really stressed me out," Charley explained. "I can't believe we're having to choose his high school from a video," she continued, revealing she had been putting off watching the videos and completing the application for several weeks.

"Anyway, I cannot be alone with this because it just does not sit right with me," Charley said. The 32-year-old added a yes or no poll to see how her followers felt, writing: "Anyone with me? Choosing his high school from a video tour feels so wrong."

The actress has applied for her son Buster's high school based on video tours

Charley and Matthew's son Bowie only recently joined his older brother at school, so with Buster preparing to move onto higher education, this will be the only year the two will cross over. 

In September, the actress marked the huge milestone with several adorable family photos. One snap showed the four-year-old twinning with his older brother in their red and black uniform. Grinning for the camera with the arms around one another, she wrote: "Just like that, he's started school."

Bowie posed with his matching red book bag over his shoulder and a grey water bottle as one-year-old Ace crawled towards him on the bench.
