BEVERLEY Callard is set to reprise her role as a landlady – after her ‘mega shag’ husband Jon McEwan created a pub in their garden.
The I’m A Celebrity star, who is famed for playing Rovers Return landlady Liz McDonald, has given fans a peak inside the watering hole ahead of Christmas Day.

Posting a photo of the finished pub online, the actress told her Instagram followers: “COVID Christmas isn’t what we hoped for, so @jonmmac55 (Megashag) has spent the day making his garden pub ready for a party for two!”
She added: “We’re bonkers! ?xx.”
Beverley has also given fans a video tour of the pub, which is accompanied by the Elton John hit Step Into Christmas.

Silver tinsel curtains hang from the doorway and windows and, once inside, the couple have kitted it out from top to bottom.
Bottles of spirits hang in optics behind the bar while a separate shelving unit is filled with other drinks, including a bottle of festive favourite Baileys Irish Cream.
Jon has hung replica vintage pub pictures on the walls and there is even a light-up ‘open’ sign to show when he and Beverley are ready for business.
The couple can relax on cosy tub chairs and listen to music playing from the sound system that has been wired in.

Outside, Jon has created an outdoor seating area for Christmas dinner with the help of a gazebo, some wall-mounted garden heaters and yet more fairy lights.
Before posting the video tour online, Beverley had asked: “Who would like to see @jonmmac55 finished garden pub ready for Christmas? It’s magical!”
A whopping 95 per cent of fans clicked a poll to say they wanted to take a peek.
Bev said she ‘wanted to die’ after learning that her ‘mega shag’ comment had aired
Beverley, who announced she was quitting Corrie in November 2019, has been happily married to recording studio owner Jon for 10 years.
During her recent I’m A Celebrity stint, the star hit the headlines after describing him as “mega shag”.
She was seen telling her camp mates: “Jon’s very handsome, he’s a mega shag.”
Beverley has since said she “wanted to die” when she realised her crude nickname for her husband had made it into an episode of the ITV1 show.
But although she feared her 88-year-old mother-in-law would never speak to her again, the comment has made the pensioner proud.
