Beverley Callard: Coronation Street actress’ children upset after seeing ‘fragile’ star

Coronation Street cast favourite Beverley Callard, 63, has revealed her children, Rebecca, 45, and Joshua, 31, and her stepchildren, Ben, 34, Jon, 31, and Danielle, 29, were “shocked” and “upset” when they first saw her after her botched hip operation. The actress was left unable to walk after a hip operation went wrong back in March.

She went through weeks of agony before being told she couldn’t undergo corrective surgery.

Fortunately, after finding a new medical team, Beverley went under the knife again in July.

The Liz McDonald star explained her recent reunion with her family was “emotional” due to her difficult period of ill health.

Beverley recalled: “My children were quite upset to see me.

Beverley has also been warned by doctors that she will have a “long recovery”, after she shared her hopes to walk again by Christmas.

“I don’t feel like me,” she admitted. “I’m a really physical person. I don’t have any sit down hobbies.

“My whole life has just stopped. I don’t know when I’ll be fully recovered.

“The hardest thing is I have no independence. I can’t drive or get myself anywhere.”
