Catherine Tyldesley has joked her sons maths is ‘terrible’ after she home schooled him during lockdown.
Like many parents across the country, the former Corrie star had to be mum and teacher to her six-year-old son Aflie who she shares with husband Tom Pitfield.
Cath was asked about how her family dealt with lockdown during an in-studio appearance on This Morning.
The Salford actress was on the ITV show to chat to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield about her latest drama Viewpoint which started last night.
But chat soon moved on and Holly said to Cath: “You’re a mother so you’re homeschooling and that’s a completely different environment…”
Cath then began to laugh and said: “Holly, homeschooling…
“I mean, god bless teachers. I couldn’t do it. Maths homework and things like that terrify me anyway.”
The 37-year-old then added: “Don’t get me wrong, he now knows the entire vocal score to Les Miserable and Annie.
“But his maths is terrible because I’ve been at the helm.”
As she laughed Holly commented: “I think that is to be applauded actually. Well done you.
“At least you achieved something.”
Of course, Cath was joking about his maths but we hope she’s not about his new musical theatre skills.
Fans have been thrilled to see Cath back on screen as she takes on the role of Kate Tuckman, the perfect school run mum with a sideline as a social media influencer, in Viewpoint.
The new ITV thriller, which airs over five consecutive nights this week, sees Noel Clarke play Detective Martin Young who is part of a police surveillance unit aiming to solve a mystery in a seemingly tight-knit Manchester community.
“Lovely to see @Cath_Tyldesley back on our screens #Viewpoint,” one fan tweeted during the first episode.
Another said: “Loving #Viewpoint on #itv can’t wait to see @Cath_Tyldesley’s character develop, a brilliant actress!”
“Loving #Viewpoint so far !! @Cath_Tyldesley brilliant as always so far,” a third added.
