Returning to Instagram on a chic Italian scooter, Beverley has rediscovered her thirst for a living since lockdown restrictions eased.

She wrote: “Hello everyone, I know I’ve been a bit boring and a bit quiet here lately. Hope everyone is enjoying life now that some restrictions have been lifted, we definitely are. .

“@ jonmmac55 and I have had a few little adventures that I look forward to sharing with you soon but for now .. I wanted to show you this … shamefully aging 😂 ..

“Thanks to Chris from @colchesterkawasaki for helping me choose the perfect @vespa. Fantastic customer service if you’re looking to get one 🙌🏻.”

The Liz McDonald actress is in love with her husband Jon, whom she nicknamed “megashag” during his stint in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

Beverley recently revealed that she is going under the knife to have a facelift to extend her career.

The actress – who stepped down as Liz McDonald after 31 years – said she felt the need to do so so she could continue acting despite ageism and sexism in the industry.

Speaking on author Melanie Blake’s YouTube Girl Talk series, she said, “I’m not doing this for anyone else.

“I don’t really want to be younger, but I don’t want my professional life to end because of how many years I am rather than anything else.

“Plus I’m never happy with myself, they’re my demons, I hate mirrors, I don’t look at pictures of myself and it’s not false modesty, I just don’t like it.

“Even though we’re in the car and Jon is driving and I lower the mirror, I have to put it back on, I hate that. Of my appearance.”

In addition to Corrie, the actress has starred in Two Pints ​​of Lager and A Packet of Crisps and sold-out tours of the Thunder Girls and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

But she fears her acting career will be over unless she goes under the knife – against the will of her husband and children.

She added: “I want to do it, I have to say Jon really doesn’t want me to do it. We have five kids between Jon and me, and I only said one and this one said ‘ no no no no no’.

“But I’m going to do it and I’m doing it for myself.

“Like I said, I don’t want to be younger, I will never lie about my age, I just hope it makes me a little better.”
