Charlie Brooks says the 'EastEnders' schedule is "tough" at the moment.
The 32-year-old actor plays Walford bitch Janine Butcher in the BBC soap and because of the prominent storylines her character has been involved in recently she's been working flat out on set.
But Charlie managed to take some time out from her schedule to take her daughter Kiki to the Chad Valley 'World of Imagination' event at the weekend and she enjoyed having some downtime with her child.
Speaking at the opening of the attraction at 1 Marleybone Road in London, she said: "My 'EastEnders' filming schedule is pretty tough at the moment so it's great to spend today with Kiki my daughter. She's eight now and growing up fast so I try to spend as much time with her as possible when I get a break. However, I can't deny it's great that there are so many toys here, so I can chill out for a bit and don't have to worry about entertaining her!"
Other celebrities at the event included comic Rufus Hound - who was seen playing with the toys on offer more than his three kids - 'Britain's Got Talent' impressionist Francine Lewis and 'Big Brother's Little Brother' panellist Jamie East.
At one point Francine stepped up on to the 'Rockstar bedroom area' and had the other visitors in hysterics with her famous impressions.
The 'World of Imagination' attraction features a play area where a giant bath was a submarine and a kitchen was a racetrack and is now open to the public.
