Charley told her 503k followers that she had been sat in stationary traffic for some time when a women drove her car in the back of her.
She said: ‘I had been stationary for quite a while so she obviously wasn’t concentrating or watching where she going because she came right into the back of me…
‘It wasn’t actually that big of an impact, I didn’t jerk forward or anything, but my lower back – I’m in agony.’
She went on to explain that she did not feel the pain initially, putting it down to the adrenaline after the crash, however she went on: ‘I don’t understand quite why its as bad as it is but oh my word it is so painful’.

The mother-of-three noted that it was lucky her youngest son Ace, 21 months, was not in the car at the time.
She went on: ‘Luckily I didn’t have Ace in the car, because that would have been a different story. The car obviously was hit quite hard but I’ve got quite a big car so it doesn’t show huge marks, but her bumper was definitely damaged.’
The incident comes after Charley, who is married to fellow Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden, 40, took to Instagram in February to explain she had been putting off seeing a doctor because of her concerned over the pandemic.
Honest: In February, Charley revealed she went to hospital for tests after experiencing pain in her breast, and urged fans not to put off seeing a doctor like she did
She explained: ‘I went to the doctor’s last week because I’ve been having this pain in my boob which I know is really personal but I wanted to talk about it because I put it off for ages.
‘I put it off and put it off because I was so worried about going into them with anything at the moment, with everything that going on.’
‘There is other stuff and that’s okay. I’m really glad that I did it. The hospital is dead. She said they’re only seeing people if they really need to. And cause I had to be examined she had to see me.’
The following day, Charley reassured her fans that her tests came back normal and nothing was wrong with her, and she thanked them for their support.
Advice: Despite her initial concerns of being seen by a doctor amid the coronavirus crisis, she said: ‘If there’s something that you’re worried about then you should go and get it checked’

The actress detailed: ‘Nothing much to report just wanted to say I’m really pleased I posted that story yesterday.
‘I can’t tell you how many people sent me messages yesterday, men and women, young and old, basically saying they felt the same and they’re putting off getting things checked and now they’re not.
‘So, I feel like even though it felt really personal, and I thought “do I share this?” Sometimes it is uncomfortable talking about such personal stuff but it’s also really important too.’
Charley and her husband Matt, who plays David Metcalfe on the soap, have three sons together, Buster, 10, Bowie, five, and one-year-old Ace.
