What happened to Beverley Callard? Liz McDonald’s cancelled Coronation Street exit

Last year it was revealed Beverley would be leaving Corrie in 2020.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, filming was halted and many changes had to be made.

It was reported last month that Beverley’s time on the cobbles was over, despite no exit scenes airing.

But the actress later revealed she underwent a hip operation back in March and was meant to be back on set of the ITV soap within days.

However it all went by the wayside when she was left in agonising pain and needing a full hip replacement. And she was left fearing she wouldn’t walk again.

But yesterday (Sunday, September 20) Beverley revealed she is off her crutches.

Coronation Street: Liz McDonald exit

Although Liz’s exit scenes were unable to be filmed this year, Beverley said she will go back to Coronation Street next year to film her exit.

Speaking on Loose Women earlier this month she said: “Well the biggest thing was we went to shoot Liz’s exit – I’m not going to tell you what it was – but after lockdown I couldn’t go back.

“They did offer me a wheelchair and I said, ‘Absolutely not! A wheelchair and stiletto shoes, no no no.’

“But I will go back maybe at the beginning of next year, so they will see a bit more of Liz. It’s going to be very dramatic, I believe.”
