Chloé "Chlo" Charles (Née Grainger) married her boyfriend Donte Charles as soon as she turned sixteen in the hope that she would have the stability that was lacking in her life after her mother was murdered. She embarked on an affair with her sister Mika's boyfriend Brett Aspinall, but once it is out of her system, her relationship with Donte grows even stronger. Donte presents her with a rundown old van for a mobile hairdressing business so that she can start to fulfil her dreams, but Chlo again has doubts when she discovers that she is pregnant.

She has graduated from Waterloo Road and is now attending university and living in Manchester with Donte and their daughter Izzie, named after her mother, Izzie Redpath, who was sadly killed by Lewis Seddon's uncle, Jed, at the end of Series 2.

Following Izzie's death, Tom Clarkson looks after Chlo and Mika until they leave the series at the end of Series 4.

It is unknown if Mika and Chlo met Tom's son Josh Stevenson.
