The cause of the breakdown was the huge pressure that was placed on the popular actress after her Cheshire pub collapsed leaving Bev Callard in financial ruin. Owning the pub was Bev Callard dream and she put all of her life savings into the business but with the credit crunch and the smoking ban affecting trade, Bev and her partner Jon McEwan were left devastated when the business collapsed.

Bev Callard who said she learnt a lot about herself through the nervous breakdown says she is now recovering and wants to make people aware of what depression can do to people and is helping the charity Mind make people more aware.

The actress who sold her house to help buy the pub has now been forced to rent a small two-bedroom townhouse in Salford Quays, Manchester after losing everything.

A spokesman for Coronation Street said: “Everyone at ITV has been behind Beverley through this very difficult time.

“We are extremely proud of the huge progress she has made.”
