EastEnders saw many shock returns, as well as some new faces, arrive at Albert Square in 2023. Could the new year bring yet another new face to Walford? Going by a soap Legend’s recent social media response, it is quite possible. Turns out, Coronation Street star Beverly Callard is eyeing a role on EastEnders. But which one is it? Dive in to find out!
Social Media is a great place for fans and stars to interact. And said interactions often end up offering some really fantastic insights and future possibilities. Something similar happened when a fan – Darren, suggested Beverly to join the EastEnders cast. She wagered that the legendary actress could step in as a long-lost member of one of the iconic Walford families. Perhaps the Mitchells or the Slaters. Interestingly, Beverly was all for the suggestion!
The seasoned soap star responded to the EastEnders fan by saying, “Love the idea.” The conversation soon caught the eyes of some other fans. Contributing to the chatter, one of them suggested that Beverly could join the BBC One soap as Karen’s talked about, but never seen before, sis. Bev immediately gave her nod to the idea. While also expressing interest in another fan’s suggestion that she could come in as Eve Unwin’s relative!
Honestly, if Beverly Callard did decide to join EastEnders, we would be all for it. In fact, it won’t be the first time a switch-up would happen between Corrie and EastEnders. Previously, Liz McDonald, Michelle Connor, Dev Alahan, Gail Platt, and Jason Grimshaw have also made their presence felt in Walford.
So we are pretty sure Beverly would be a hit on EastEnders, too. She was just as incredible as Liz McDonald on Coronation Street. She debuted on the soap back in 1989 and became an instant hit. The last time we saw her as Liz was back in 2020 when she decided to move to Spain. And we feel it would be really great to have her back in the soap universe. What do you think?
