Charley Webb addresses ‘difficult’ Emmerdale filming after taking on ‘five peoples’ jobs’

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Emmerdale star Charley Webb, 32, said filming had become more difficult as she was no longer just learning her lines, but had also been doing her own hair and make-up for scenes. The Debbie Dingle star surprised fans with her return to the soap last month, where she was revealed as Al Chapman’s (played by Michael Wildman) mystery woman.

Discussing the changes on set on Loose Women today, the actress was asked if she had found filming for the soap difficult during lockdown.

She replied: “Do you know what, yeah I did. It’s doing your own hair, doing your own make-up, doing your own costume, working with your own props, you’re doing so much.

“For me, I’m used to just learning my lines and getting on set and doing my part of the job and now it’s like you’re doing five peoples’ jobs.

“It is hard work and because we do many many scenes in a day, everything is so quick, you’ve just to be so on the ball.

“So yeah it’s definitely a lot tougher than it used to be.”

Charley features on the soap with her husband and co-star Matthew Wolfenden, who she shares three sons with.

Discussing juggling working life and parenting, she went on to tell the Loose Women panellists: “I think to be honest when we’re filming, we’re separate.

“So it kind of works that when he’s filming, I’m not.

“Three boys in lockdown. I mean, it’s chaos. absolute chaos,” she added.

“I’m not going to lie, and my kids are quite feral as well.

“So they’re not like these quiet little boys that will sit and play with trains. They’re feral.”

On her latest Emmerdale storyline, she teased viewers “could see a few fireworks” as her affair with Al continues to unfold.

The latter is in a relationship with Priya Sharma (Fiona Wade), which Debbie is currently unaware of.

When asked if the pair could work together and catch Michael out, she spilled: “Debbie’s quite a strong character and she doesn’t let things go.

“Priya is a little bit more laid back but obviously, her fiancé is cheating on her and she’s about to get married so I think we could see a few fireworks.”

Emmerdale continues tonight at 7pm on ITV. Loose Women airs weekdays from 12.30pm.
