I’m A Celebrity: Is Beverley Callard vegan?

According to her former Corrie co-star, Beverley’s vegan diet could just be a “tactic”.

Charlie previously played Bev’s on-screen husband Jim McDonald in the soap.

Speaking to The Mirror, Charlie said: “Well, maybe she is or isn’t a vegan. I couldn’t possibly comment.

“If it was a tactic, it meant you wouldn’t eat sheep’s [bleep].

It came days after Beverley was given meat-free dishes during her vile eating trial with Vernon Kay and Jordan North.

Fans weren’t happy that Beverley had fermented plums and fermented tofu, while her co-stars tried to endure sheep’s brains, goat’s eyes and a cow’s tongue.

The actress, 63, also faced other disgusting foods, including vomit fruit.

During the trial, Bev revealed that she had only been a vegan since March.
