However after the pandemic threw everything up in the air, Beverley has revealed she agreed to stay an extra year on the cobbles before saying a final goodbye to Liz.

Unfortunately her plans then went by the wayside over her health troubles and an operation going wrong.

Now on the road to recovery Beverley has confirmed she will return to Corrie next year to film Liz’s exit.

She told the Mirror: “I had the next two years of my life planned. You don’t leave a job like Corrie without plans.

“I had a whole year at Corrie and then a year of plans after that. Then it all fell by the wayside because of this. There have been days when I’ve asked myself ‘how will I earn any money?’ There have been days when I panicked.

“And there was definite doubt over whether I would walk again.”

What was Liz McDonald’s Coronation Street exit?

Corrie viewers were furious at Liz’s exit scenes when she was simply described as having moved to Spain off-screen.

It was only mentioned in passing by her son Steve and ex Leanne as they talked about the struggles of dealing with son Oliver’s life-limiting condition.

“I don’t suppose it helps that your mum’s in Spain either,” Leanne said in a scene in August.

Steve replied: “No but I get why she had to get out of here but yeah, one less person to talk to I suppose.”

According to the Mirror Bev’s cobbles return has been put on hold until next year as she waits for doctors to sign her off after her ill-health.
