Liz McDonald To Be Queen Of Coronation Street

Liz McDonald is to become the new land lady at the Rover?s Return on Coronation Street and actress Bev Callard couldn?t be more delighted.

The 47-year old was surprised to hear Liz had been chosen to take over behind the bar.

She said to the Mirror: ?It?s such an honour – but it?s still sinking in. I only got told I was going to be the next land lady on Friday.

?We were rehearsing when someone from the press office rang to say the Mirror had found out Liz was taking over.

?I said ?oh?, and she was like ?Oh, sorry didn?t you know?? I didn?t have a clue.?

However, Callard has a bit of an inkling what to expect as she runs a pub off screen with her partner Jon McEwan.

Talk about art imitating life?
