Beverley’s I’m A Celebrity appearance in doubt
It was recently reported that Beverley may not be able to take part in this year’s I’m A Celeb after complications from a hip operation left her unable to walk.
An insider told The Sun: “Beverley was signed up for the show when it was still planned to be in Australia. She was so excited to be able to come on board.
“Obviously, with the surgery, she’s had complications no one could have foreseen. There’s no way she’d able to take part in the show and fully experience it.”
The source added: “At best, she might have been able to do the smaller tasks, but for most of them she’d have to sit out for medical reasons, which is no fun for Bev, nor for viewers.”
Earlier this year Beverley revealed she had undergone a hip replacement operation after a standard procedure had gone wrong and left her in agony.
However, she faced relearning how to walk and was unable to film her final scenes as Liz in Corrie.
She has said, however, that she intends to return next year to film a proper farewell to the character.
