Vanessa decided to take a break from the village, and since then Charity has a hard time adjusting and has turned to drink, and it seems like her behaviour is spiralling more and more out of control.
This has also put a strain on her friendship with Chas, who has become sick of her selfish ways as she keeps putting herself before her children.
Not only is she now drinking heavily, but Charity has also joined forces with Mackenzie.

"She just loses it in the end and has enough of her."
Although she admitted that she'll always be there for her pal no matter what.
She added: "I don’t think she’ll ever completely abandon her because it’s Charity and Chas and if she was to end up in the gutter Chas would be the first person to help her up again."
