Charlie, who shares daughter Kiki with her Ibiza hotel owner ex Tony Truman, has been making videos with her teenage daughter during lockdown to keep themselves entertained.

In a TikTok video, which uses the green screen feature on the social media platform, Charlie lipsynced along to the original script, while Kiki played the role of poor Barry, as the duo re-created on of Charlie's most iconic EastEnders scenes.

The soap star absolutely nailed her scenes as she viciously told Barry she didn't love him and just wanted his money before pushing him off the cliff.

Kiki splits her time between her mum's home in Hertfordshire and her dad's hotels in Ibiza, and recently spent some of her summer in Spain after lockdown travel restrictions eased.

Charlie's home is filled with an assortment of quirky belongings and bold interior decor.


In her bedroom the soap star, who has launched her own company I Am Pro to help aspiring performers, has a four poster bed hung with drapes.

It is painted in a turquoise colour with her bed sheets in a contrasting pale pink.

Over in her kitchen the actress has filled the room with cooking equipment.

Pots and pans hang along over the sink area while utensils hang over the hob.

The fridge is covered in notes and artwork while a lightbox stands on her wooden worktop that has the quote: "She believed she could so she did."

A collage of framed photos adorns a doorway out of the kitchen with a mirror in the middle making the room appear even bigger.

The bold and bright colour scheme runs throughout the house with more turquoise in the living room.

Charlie clearly loves clashing colours and prints as the cosy snug features a sofa in yellow, blue, red and green covered in fur throws and cushions.

There's also a yellow chair and a fireplace, that her pet pooch seems to enjoy.

Upstairs in the bathroom Charlie has opted for a checked tile pattern in black and white with the unusual addition of a tiger shaped rug.

She wrote in the caption of the snap: "This is my bathroom floor and I like it. #rah."

Charlie's back garden also proves to be the perfect outdoor spot to host business meetings, with a wooden furniture to sit out and enjoy the fresh air.
