Beverley Callard snubs offer of Corrie return and doesnt want to go back

Beverley Callard has snubbed a deal to return to Corrie.

Execs offered her a big-money contract to reprise her role as Liz McDonald two years after quitting.

She said: “They have asked me a couple of times, but I don’t want to go back. I have got a life now. I left in 2020 and I don’t want to go back. I did it for 32 years.

“When I was on the show, my husband John and I would get maybe an hour and a half together in the evening. But now we can work together and just have a great time and I just love it.”

Since leaving Corrie, Beverley has starred in hit comedy Newark. Newark on digital channel Gold and she’s keen to do more.

She said: “We’re hoping a second series of it will be made.”

Beverley also starred on I’m A Celebrity and she’s up for doing more reality TV if the price is right.

She said: “Acting is my first love but reality TV pays the mortgage.”

It comes after the star confirmed she was running fitness classes in her local area.

She told OK!: "So about six weeks into our move to Norfolk, I said to Jon, ‘Right, I’m going to start teaching again.’ I posted an ad on the local village Facebook group, saying I was looking for 25 feisty women to take part in my class.

"It didn’t matter what age they were, what shape they were or their fitness level. I’m not into teaching a class full of stick insects. I just wanted real women."

“Within two days, 700 people wanted to do it, which is amazing. I charge £5 and all the money goes to the East Anglian Air Ambulance.”

Bev was an aerobics teacher before she shot to fame as Angie Richards in rival ITV soap Emmerdale, and even appeared in exercise slots on GMTV each morning.

She appeared in Corrie from 1989 until 2019.
