I’M A Celebrity hosts Ant and Dec have revealed Beverley Callard has been ruled out of the next Bushtucker trial on medical grounds.
The presenters told viewers that they wouldn’t be able to vote for the Coronation Street legend after she was made exempt from the next grisly trial.
It comes after Bev, 63, vowed to complete every castle trial – despite doctors begging her to turn down the show.
The Coronation Street icon exclusively told HOAR she was warned not to take part in the ITV series when she was first offered a spot in the line-up back in March after having two major hip operations this year.
Asked about her health, she exclusively explained to HOAR how she almost didn’t make it to Gwrych castle.
She said: “I had one operation in March and then I had the great big one in July and I was really worried that I wouldn’t be able to do it.
“My hip surgeon said this, his words not mine, when I first told him about it very confidentially.
“He said, ‘Bev, you’ve got NO chance’”.
Her fortunes soon changed as she continued: “Obviously I have seen him a lot over the last few months and the last time I saw him he was either going to say yes you can do it or no you can’t, and his words were ‘I’m a helluva woman’, he couldn’t believe it.
“The hospital want to use me as an example (to other patients).”
The only activity the actress said she would not be allowed to take part in is bunjee jumping and she would have “hated” if she was ruled out of various trials and tasks on medical grounds.
She said: “I would hate it if they said ‘and Beverley can’t take part in this because of medical reasons’, I don’t want to be thought of as a wuss, it would drive me insane. But he said everything else I can do.
“I can walk, go up stairs, I haven’t missed one physio session, I’ve done hydrotherapy I’ve done the whole lot.
“Believe me, I’ve worked my socks off to be here. I’m not going to quit.”
