CHARLIE Cotton, Dot's grandson and the apple of her eye, made an abrupt departure from Albert Square in 2015.

What happened to Charlie Cotton?

Charlie originally arrived on the square to inform his grandma Dot Branning of her son Nick's (fake) death.

The truth eventually came out and Charlie made it up to Dot by becoming a devoted grandson to her, immersing himself into life on Albert Square.

He had a one night stand with Ronnie Mitchell which resulted in her pregancy and the pair ended up falling in love and getting married.

They were happily looking forward to the birth of their child when poor Ronnie was mown down by a car and ended up in a coma for months on end, giving birth to baby Matthew.

Charlie was distraught and needed help to cope with the newborn baby, and Ronnie's sister Roxy stepped in to help.

She provided a shoulder for Charlie to cry on, and the two became closer and closer, eventually starting an affair.

After Ronnie came round from the coma and faced long months of recovery ahead of her, the guilty couple couldn't hide the truth from her and Charlie and Ronnie had a bitter break up.

Charlie persuaded Roxy to run away with him and Matthew, however blood ran thicker than water, and Roxy double crossed him – letting her sister know that Charlie was planning on taking her son away from her.

Charlie tried to blackmail Ronnie into letting him take Matthew, forcing her to enlist her old flame, hard man Vincent Hubbard to help.

The pair confronted him, Ronnie got Matthew back and Vincent 'dealt' with Charlie.

Why did people think Charlie died?

Viewers were left wondering whether he died after his wallet turned up in a bin following his confrontation with Vincent.

Roxy was left getting increasingly suspicious about what had happened to Charlie.

Knowing her sister's history, she eventually confronted Ronnie, asking her if she had killed him.

Ronnie desperately phoned Vincent who said he would 'sort it' – Roxy was then seen receiving a phone call from Charlie, reassuring her that he was safe. However Charlie was not seen on screen.

What Is Will Young Doing Now, What’s His Lgbt Homo Sapiens Podcast About And What Are His Hit Songs?




SINGER Will Young was a pioneer of reality TV pop industry success after his epic battle with Gareth Gates, but now he’s preferring life away from the limelight

Since becoming the first winner of Pop Idol, Will is no stranger to the reality TV circuit, but what do we know about the award-winning crooner?

Who is Will Young, how old is he and what’s his background?

Will Young is a 38-year-old British singer born January 20, 1979, in Wokingham.

He’s a twin and his brother, born ten minutes later than him, is called Rupert.

Will, who comes from a family with strong ties to the British government and the military, was a natural sportsman at school.

He then became interested in singing and performing while studying politics at the University of Exeter.

In his second year at uni in 1999, he saw a This Morning TV ad inviting viewers to audition for a boy band, which kicked off his journey to global fame.

How did Will Young find fame?

Originally Will’s audition for the This Morning contest saw him placed in a band with Lee Ryan, Andy Scott-Lee and Declan Bennett.

And while his boy band career was unsuccessful, but he’d impressed panellist Simon Cowell during his 1999 audition.

In 2001, Will applied for new TV show Pop Idol and successfully got through every round, despite initially underwhelming judges Simon Cowell, Nicki Chapman, Pete Waterman and Neil Fox.

Will clashed with Cowell throughout the series after the music boss kept giving his performances poor reviews.

Eventually, Will found himself in the final and just managed to best his rival Gareth Gates, getting 53.1 per cent on the phone vote overall.

Will Young’s beautiful voice got him to the top on Pop Idol

After winning the series, Will released double A-side single with Everygreen and Anything Is Possible, before his debut album came out in 2002.

Shortly after that he came out as gay and denied ever hiding the fact.

Will’s most famous hit Leave Right Now came out in 2003, and he’s also known for his cover of Light My Fire and his dance hit Jealousy.

To date Will has released six studio albums, with his most recent album from 2015 being the first he did not record for Sony.

What else has Will Young done with himself?

Will was supposed to be judging on the first series of The Voice UK in 2012 but was replaced by Danny O’Donoghue at the last minute.

However, he did make a major return to reality TV with Strictly Come Dancing in 2016, on which he was paired up with Strictly professional Karen Clifton.

Karen Clifton and Will Young were paired up for last year’s show

Sadly for Will, he pulled out of the series after three weeks, citing “personal reasons” for leaving, though many viewers suspected judge Len Goodman had something to do with it.

Meanwhile, his friends said Will’s anxiety caused him to quit, which makes sense as Will has spoken about his mental illness and addictive personality in the past.

He was also dumped by Island Records in 2016 just four years and one album into their working relationship.

But it isn’t all doom and gloom for the Will of recent years as he stunned critics in a stage production of Cabaret in 2012, which earned him a best newcomer award from What’s On Stage.

He’s also had screen roles in BBC film Mrs Henderson Presents, teen drama Skins and a Miss Marple mystery for telly called The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side.

The star supports numerous charities, ranging from the Prince’s Trust to Mencap and gAID, which fights domestic violence in homosexual relationships.
