Charlotte "Charlie" Ramsden (originally Hargreaves, née Johnson) was adopted. Her biological mother is Pam Hargreaves and she has two half siblings, Luke Ashton and Christine Hargreaves. She and her husband Matt moved into the house owned by Natalie Barnes. Matt, a doctor, took up a practice at the new local Rosamund Street Medical Centre. Charlie was snobbish and didn't want to live in such a down market (in her eyes) area. She was a teacher at Weatherfield Comprehensive and taught most of the local children; that was too close for her taste as well.
Charlie and Matt had a rocky relationship. She drank quite a bit and didn't want children of her own though Matt did. She made friends with Emma Watts but considered Maxine Peacock to be common. She found her biological mother after she discovered that one of her students, Luke, was her half brother. There didn't seem to be a lot of love lost between them all.
Charlie was eventually sacked for drinking on the job and later horrified to find out that Matt had a one-night stand with Maxine, which possibly resulted in the baby, Joshua Peacock. She left Matt but eventually reconciled with him on the condition that they left Weatherfield for good. The reunion didn't work out and within four years the pair had divorced and Matt had remarried.
