Pauline Quirke is "dead proud" of her actor son.

The 'Birds of a Feather' star's real-life offspring Charlie appears alongside her in the new series of the sitcom as her on-screen nephew Travis and she couldn't be happier with the ease he has tackled his first major acting role.

She said: "I'm dead proud of him anyway, I really am. He's a nice boy and was a lovely child to bring up. He's learning, it's his first big telly and it's lovely seeing how he is with the crew.

"It's complicated doing a multi-camera show with a live audience, so you have to be on your game - and he really is."

Charlie - whose father is the actress' husband Steve Sheen - is particularly enjoying the show because of the outfits he gets to wear, because his mother says he is a "tart".

Pauline added: "He loves the clothes he gets to wear on the show. He's a big tart my son. He loves his clothes and he loves looking nice."

To celebrate the end of filming the new series, Pauline and her co-stars - who include Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph - got "p***ed" and sang karaoke - and the 54-year-old actress stayed out much later than her son.

Asked how they marked the end of filming, Linda said: "We got p***ed! We had karaoke in the bar."

Pauline added to Attitude magazine: "A good sing-song with the crew, just in a room in the studio. Charlie left before me, but not much."
