I’m A Celeb’s Beverley Callard thought all men were ‘b******s’ before hubby No4

I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star Beverley Callard admitted she thought "all men were b******s" before she was sent on a blind date with her now-husband Jon McEwan.

The Coronation Street icon had been married three times before meeting Jon, first to Paul Atkinson, then Steve Callard and finally David Sowden.

And before meeting Jon on a blind date she admitted she'd given up on men but was persuaded to go and see him by her old fitness class pupils.

Beverley, 63, met Jon, 55, while she was living in Spain on a break from Corrie and working as a fitness instructor.

She told The Mirror in 2017: "I had decided all men are b******s by that point. I just wasn't interested in meeting someone.

"A few of my pupils set is up on a blind date but I didn't turn up. The second time, a group of us met up for drinks.

"When I saw Jon with his shaved head and gold tooth I wasn't impressed but within minutes we were chatting away.

"We went on to sit together at dinner and we got on like a house on fire."

They got married in 2010 after a number of years together and have been living in wedded bliss ever since.

In fact, she credits her recording studio owner hubby Jon for "saving her life" after she suffered a nervous breakdown back in 2009.

Back then, Beverley was dealing with her mum's Alzheimer's disease battle, while she was also in debt after her and Jon's failed business venture.

The actress went through treatment at the Priory Clinic, with Jon standing by her side the entire time.

She said: "It wasn't just the fact that Jon rumbled me to the nurses that saved me from ending it all.

"It was much more than that. He stood by me, through everything. He never gave up trying to understand my torment.

"Even though after visiting me he'd go to his car and cry his heart out. Even though he'd see me curled into a ball with matted hair, unable to speak or move and no one was sure if I'd get better.

"By being there, by staying right by my side, he proved he loved me no matter what."
