Beverley and Jon have been married since 2010

Beverley has been very complimentary of Jon since she started I'm A Celeb, telling her campmates: "He dances for me in the kitchen every morning and makes me laugh my socks off. He's gorgeous!" 


The Coronation Street actress has been singing his praises to her campmates

Previously recalling Jon's health scare back in 2016, she told The Sun: "Jon’s my rock. I see him as indestructible so when I was told he had collapsed, I just went numb. He is never ill. What happened came completely out of the blue.

"I was on my way to A&E with my stepson Jonathan and I was begging, please God no, this cannot be. I was incredibly frightened because I didn’t know what I’d do if something happened to him. He’s my soulmate and my best friend. He’s completely and utterly the love of my life."
