Speaking on Lorraine, Charlotte explained: "So during filming I was making a bolognaise, as you do, with a very blunt knife. And on the take, I chopped the top of my finger off. But at the time, I was pretending to be pregnant as Laurel, and so I had to get rushed into AandE with the prop man."

She added that the situation caused confusion at the hospital as she was pretending to be pregnant for her role at the time. In tonight's episode of Emmerdale on Wednesday, viewers will see Laurel collapse in church following an argument with Jai.

Charlotte, while on Lorraine, shared details about her children, namely Sunnie, Herbie and Teddie, revealing they've all grown up, reports OK!

She explained: "They're teenagers, all of them. But they were harder as babies. My teenagers are funny, they're very independent and I celebrate that."

In response to Lorraine's query about whether Charlotte is considered a 'cool mum', she laughed it off, admitting her kids find her 'embarrassing'. She shared with the host: "The other day I went to my 17 year old's exhibition, and he said to me, 'Mum, you've got your toes out'. I was in sandals."
