Charley Webb, 32, has given her 490,000 Instagram followers a candid insight into the “reality” of her marriage to her husband and Emmerdale co-star Matthew Wolfenden, 40, as the couple mark their third wedding anniversary this evening. The Debbie Dingle actress surprisingly admitted she had been left alone by her other half while they celebrated the occasion, as he had a rather lengthy phone call with someone who Charley described as his “other wife”.
The mum-of-three revealed Matthew, who plays David Metcalfe in the ITV soap, was busy chatting away to their fellow co-star and pal, Rokhsaneh (Roxy) Shahidi, who also stars in the series as Leyla Harding.
Charley began by explaining the situation in an Instagram Story video, in which she could be seen wearing a cosy purple hoodie while watching the TV on her own.
She said: “The reality of marriage and especially when you’ve been with someone for such a long time.
“Matthew’s on the phone to his other wife Rokhsaneh and he has been for ages. I am just sitting on the sofa watching TV in my hood.”

Appearing to show her comments were made in jest, Charley tagged Roxy in the caption of her post, which read: “The reality of marriage. Matthew’s on the phone to his other wife @roxyshahidi.”
Fortunately, Charley didn’t let her other half’s phone call with their friend and co-star get in the way of her enjoying the evening, as she shared a “really cute card” she had bought him to celebrate their anniversary.
She revealed she had sent a family photo featuring herself, Matthew, and their three sons, Buster, 10, Bowie, four, and Ace, one, to an artist to create the personalised card.
Charley continued: “Anyway, going to show you a really cute card that I got him.
“I think you could probably still order it and get it in time for Valentine’s Day, but don’t quote me on that, but it’s so cute.
“So this is the card – how cute is that? So we sent a picture to the lady and she then does it in fineliner pens. Just think it’s such a lovely thing to send to somebody.
“We’re going to frame ours, but I think for weddings, anything, you send a picture to her and then she creates it!”
Charley also posted a funny Instagram vs. Reality snap to give fans a glimpse at her anniversary plans with Matthew.

The Instagram version of the photo showed the couple beaming for the camera while putting on a cosy display in matching purple outfits on their sofa.
They were also toasting with glasses of red wine.
However, the Reality version of the snap showed the soap stars sitting apart from one another in their living room while Matthew looked a bit grumpy with a cup of tea in his hand.
Charley cheekily captioned the post: “Happy 3rd Wedding Anniversary. Instagram Vs Reality.”
It comes after the actress told OK! Magazine that she and Matthew aren’t very romantic as a couple, saying: “I think we’ve been together for so long. We’re at that stage where we’ve got kids…”
Matthew chimed in, joking: “We’re bored of each other, is that what you’re trying to say?”
Charley replied: “Yes! But there is a sense that we’re so comfortable with each other we just don’t need to do all those sorts of gestures.
“We’ve been together 15 years and we’re a team and a partnership. If Matthew bought me something, I’d be like, ‘What have you done?’ We’re not the most romantic couple.
“In a lot of ways, I think that’s why it works, because we don’t put any pressure on our relationship.”
