Charles Adam "Charlie" Dean is the son of Becca Hayton and Justin Burton (Chris Fountain), Becca gave birth to him after being sentenced to imprisonment after alleged under-age activity with Justin. After Charlie was born, it was unknown whether Justin or her husband Jake Dean (Kevin Sacre) was his father. Becca originally gave Charlie to Jake, but when Justin firsts meets Charlie after stealing Jake's car Justin realizes he is the father. Jake's sister Steph Dean (Carley Stenson) convinced Jake to take a paternity test in January 2007, but Jake destroyed the results and assumed the role of Charlie's father, along with his now wife and Becca's sister, Nancy Osborne (Jessica Fox). In February 2007, Becca was stabbed in prison, and dies afterwards, and Charlie never got a chance to see her.
When Charlie was taken in to hospital in January 2008 for leukaemia treatment, it was revealed that Jake was not the biological father (his blood did not match that of Charlie), and that Justin was actually the father of Charlie. After the start of the custody proceedings between Nancy and Jake (following Jake's attempted rape of Nancy), in March 2008, Jake attempted to take his own life, along with that of Charlie. Jake was put into a secure unit and Justin convinced Jake to confess to the murder of Sean Kennedy (Matthew Jay Lewis) (although he had nothing to do with the murder) in agreement that he would stop backing Nancy with her case to get custody. Jake agreed under the condition that not only Justin back up Jake's mother Frankie Osborne (Helen Pearson) in the court case, but also walk out of Charlie's life for good. Charlie stayed with Frankie.
Charlie was mentioned in March 2009 during a conversation between Justin, Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) and a group of men in The Dog in the Pond who call themselves "The Rowdy Boys". They were talking about their children and Ste informed them that Justin had Charlie, he then proceeded to say that Justin didn't mind not being part of Charlie's life to which Justin replied that Charlie was better off where he was. One of "The Rowdy Boys" then said that he'd have to be somewhere pretty good then. Justin got angry told him he didn't know anything about himself and stormed off.
In June 2009, Justin left the village asking Ste to keep an eye on Charlie. In October 2009, Jake was released from a secure unit but was told he must stay away from Charlie. Frankie still couldn't trust Jake, and gave Charlie to Nancy.
