Charity has recently had to step up and be there for daughter Debbie, as she deals with her rekindled romance with bad boy Cameron.
But as Emma reveals in behind-the-scenes footage, she may not be able to help her headstrong daughter, as she doesn't know the full story.
"Debbie has been going through an awful lot at the moment so her mum has had to be there for her and maybe not say the things she wants to say," explained Emma.
"Sometimes they have a lovely friendship, but on this occasion she has to be the mother figure and try and discipline her child, but that's been quite difficult.
"Charity is just trying to get through to Debbie, but Debbie is a closed book at the moment because there is obviously a lot going on that Charity doesn't know about."
Charity has never really trusted Cameron because he has never been upfront; he has always been a bit sly.

But as well as dealing with Debbie's love life, Charity also has to deal with her marital problems with husband Jai, who is becoming more and more frustrated at the mere mention of Declan Macey.
"I think Jai is sick to death - the fact that she has to talk about Declan is such a wind up for him," said Emma.
"And obviously poor (son) Noah picks up on it because they are rowing constantly and this seems to have quite a detrimental impact (on him).
"Unbeknown to Charity and Jai, Noah slips out and decides to go and find Declan and have it out with him about why he is flirting with his mother.
"For all his naughtiness in having done that behind her back, I think she is thinking "Go on kid!". That is how she would handle situations - so she is quite proud of his directness."
But despite Noah's attempt to save their marriage, Emma believes Charity and Jai's already fragile relationship could be heading for disaster.
She explained: "I'm not really sure about the future with Jai and Charity because there is a lot now that will eventually have to come out.
"Obviously the audience knows that Jai has a lovechild. I can't see Charity being too happy about it really.
"I think it will be quite outrageous, the revenge that she will seek. She will have her revenge."
