Bev is doing the new gig for free and asks her female participants to make a £5 charity donation if they are able to.

Walking through the car park in an over-sized T-shirt and patterned leggings, the star appeared raring to go.

Bev had tied her blonde hair into a high ponytail and had a purple yoga mat slung over her shoulder.

Grinning as she went, she was accompanied by her husband Jon McEwan who kindly carried her bags.

Bev, a former aerobics instructor, has begun teaching a mixture of cardio and muscle toning to ‘feisty real women’ following a recent move to Norfolk.

She told OK! Magazine: ““So about six weeks into our move to Norfolk, I said to Jon, ‘Right, I’m going to start teaching again.’ I posted an ad on the local village Facebook group, saying I was looking for 25 feisty women to take part in my class.

“It didn’t matter what age they were, what shape they were or their fitness level. I’m not into teaching a class full of stick insects. I just wanted real women.

“Within two days, 700 people wanted to do it, which is amazing. I charge £5 and all the money goes to the East Anglian Air Ambulance.”

Beverley worked as an aerobics teacher before she was cast as Angie Richards in Emmerdale in 1983.

She popped up on exercise slots on GMTV in the 80s, wiggling morning viewers through the mambo and the cha cha cha.

There were also four DVDs, books and a fitness column in a newspaper but she turned down a permanent gig on the morning show.

In 1989, she joined Coronation Street as Liz McDonald and she left in 1998 to concentrate on her fitness career.

But in 2003, she was back on screen as the Rovers Return landlady before quitting for good in 2019 with her final scenes being aired the following year.
