Emmerdale actress Charley Webb has hit out at an imposter pretending to be her on Facebook.
Charley, who plays Debbie Dingle in the ITV soap, was alerted to the fake her, by a fan praising her latest FB post on Twitter. Confused yet?
The fan tweeted: “Just read @MissCharleyWebb fb post about you @MrMattWolfenden what a guy! You are doing a great job on such a difficult topic #emmerdale”
A confused Charley responded by saying that she doesn’t use that particular social networking site.
Charley obviously went off to investigate because she came back later and ranted: “I am NOT on Facebook so whoever you are please stop writing such personal things pretending to be me. It’s weird!!!!”
She also shared a screenshot of the post which was written as if it were her. It praised her partner Matthew Wolfenden for his role as cancer sufferer David Metcalfe in the ITV soap.
The post read: “I am so proud of this one these past few weeks watching how committed he is to the very difficult storyline he is playing at the moment…”
It continued: “Not only has he been sat up reading about the effects of testicular cancer every single night (literally), he was the one who told the producers that he wanted to go all the way and has decided he wants to show the full effects of Chemotherapy that people horrifyingly have to go through every single day band has decided he isn’t going to stop at having his head shaved, his eyebrows and beard are coming off as well as this is only a very small change that people who are actually battling the horrendous disease have to go through…
“And he is also donating all the hair that was on his head to the Testicular Cancer Awareness Fund. Committed and so kind hearted.”
Charley’s Emmerdale co-star Michael Parr, who plays Ross Barton, chipped in saying he knew it wasn’t her because the post was ‘too nice’.
While Coronation Street actress Sally Ann Matthews commented saying the faker had written the longest sentence ever.
Charley summed things up by saying: “People are weird.”
