She’s been known for her character’s incredibly revealing clothes since joining the soap in 1989.
But Coronation Street‘s legendary landlady Beverley Callard has admitted she’d be too embarrassed to even leave her dressing room if she sported the same scantily-clad looks as her character Liz McDonald.
Speaking on Wednesday’s Loose Women, the 60-year-old soap star confessed the thought some of the outfits her character wore were ‘disgusting,’ as she also discussed the ongoing affair storyline with married Johnny Connor.
‘Disgusting:’ Coronation Street’s Beverley Callard has admitted she’d be too embarrassed to even leave her dressing room if she sported the same scantily-clad looks as her character
Beverley told panelists Gloria Hunniford, Coleen Nolan, Stacey Solomon and Kaye Adams: ‘My clothes on Coronation Street are disgusting. Sometimes I look and think I dare not set foot out of this dressing room.’
Of course Liz has become legendary for her incredibly revealing outfits in the almost 30 years since joining Corrie, and has never been a stranger to a thigh-skimming skirt or plunging top, or even sometimes both.
It comes as her character has been at the centre of an explosive affair storyline, after she chose to sleep with Johnny Connor during a rough patch in his marriage to Jenny Bradley.

The plot is set to come to a head over the festive season, as Jenny steps up her revenge scheme, and with it rumoured that Liz will be the victim of a hit and run, it remains to be seen who will be the culprit.
Chatting about the plot, Beverley said: ‘When they first gave me the script and Liz slept with Jonny I was like no, I don’t want to do that, Liz would never have done what with a married man.
‘A lot of people were jealous of me.
‘More often than not we get scripts in and think this is amazing, but sometimes you think, I just don’t think she would do that. We know our characters so well and what they would do.
‘She always makes wrong decisions but I felt she wouldn’t do that to another woman.’
