‘I thank my lucky stars for MY FAMILY'
Coronation Street star Beverley Callard reveals why she’s not slowing down, despite planning to leave the soap
HAYLEY MINN

She was only supposed to join Corrie for 12 months, but now, almost 31 years later, actress Beverley Callard, 63, has decided to finally hang up her stilettos and pull her last pints in the Rovers.

The soap veteran joined the hit show as Liz McDonald back in 1989 and, despite a few breaks from the show in the three decades since then, has clocked up more than 2,100 episodes.

But even before the ongoing coronavirus crisis halted production, the actor had decided to make 2020 her final year, announcing her plan to leave in the summer.

And despite all her huge storylines on Corrie, Bev reveals it’s her family that makes her most proud. She insists her two adult children, Rebecca, 44, and Joshua, 30, are her ‘greatest achievement,’ in addition to her fourth husband Jon McEwan’s three children and their three grandsons.

Bev says, ‘I’ve got two children and three stepchildren who are grown up now, three gorgeous grandsons and I’ve got the most wonderful husband. I thank my lucky stars every single day.’
