Callard is currently 63 years old. She was born on March 28, 1957, in Leeds, Yorkshire, England, UK, as Beverley Jane Moxon, to Clive Moxon (1929 - 1978) and Mavis Brook (1926 - 2012).
The eldest of three children, Beverley had a brother, named Clive Moxon, who died at birth in 1960. Her younger sister, Stephanie Moxon Makin was born in 1963.
Beverley's father, Clive, worked as a baker, and her mother, Mavis, worked as a concert pianist. Talking about her height, Callard is 5 ft and 5 ft (1.65 m) tall. She attended Elmfield and Peel Street schools and Bruntcliffe High School in Morley, England.
While Callard's net worth has not been disclosed, it is estimated at $800,000 as of 2020. The 63-year-old actress first appeared as June Dewhurst in the British soap opera, Coronation Street, in 1984 before landing the more significant role of Liz McDonald in 1989.
Though her salary is unclear, Callard reportedly earned up to $266,000 a year for playing Liz McDonald in the show. In 2008, her salary in the show was estimated at $160,000 a year. Meanwhile, her co-star, David Platt, is the show’s highest earner, receiving a raise of $333,000 per episode in 2018.
Additionally, Callard played Flo Henshaw in the BBC Three sitcom Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps from the first season until the third, for two years. The 63-year-old also guest appeared on Sky1's Mile High and served as a recurring panelist on ITV's talk show Loose Women.
In November 2020, it was mentioned that Callard would be one of the contestants in the twentieth series of ITV's I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here. As per some online sources, Callard could be earning a salary of $166,000 for appearing in the reality show.
Callard first married Paul Atkinson on January 19, 1974, at the age of 16. She was pregnant then but later miscarried. The two welcomed their first child, a daughter Rebecca Callard, who is now an actress, on June 3, 1975.
A year later, Paul and Beverley divorced and she married her second husband David Sowden, an economics teacher, in 1980. After separating amicably with Sowden in 1988, Callard married her third husband, Steve Callard, in February 1989.
Their son, Joshua James Callard, was born in May 1989. The pair, however, separated in 2001, due to Steve's infidelity. Beverley is now married to her fourth husband, Jon McEwan, since October 30, 2010.
Their wedding ceremony was held at the Hazelwood Castle Hotel in North Yorkshire, England. As of now, Callard lives in Eccles, Salford, Greater Manchester, with her husband Jon and his son Ben McEwan.
In March 2020, Callard was admitted to a hospital in the North West for routine keyhole surgery. However, the surgery "really didn’t go very well at all" leading to a full hip replacement.
“I was in a state of shock and pain for four months. It has been absolute hell. That is how bad it has been. There was definite doubt over whether I would walk again," she told The Mirror.
The 63-year-old actress is now suing the hospital with a negligence charge claiming that she was never meant to undergo the initial surgery.
