She revealed: "A teacher told my parents that I was quite good at drama so recommended that I went to drama school so I did part time on a scholarship for a little bit.

"I loved it, I loved doing all the bits and pieces but my parents, as immigrants, are very much like, 'acting is not a proper job, you most certainly cannot do that in the future' so when I reached 18 I was done."

She was later asked if having to give up her dream made her feel sad.

Charlene replied: ""I don't know, I sometimes think if they'd have allowed me, where would I be now?

"But you wouldn't have me here if I'd done that, it's all worked out alright!"

"He's going to be the lead lost boy so we are very, very, very proud of him.

"In five years time he may not even remember who I am. Charlene who? Who's this?"

Charlene joked: ""And I'd have to say no, I'm a Loose Woman now!"
