'Coronation Street' actress Beverley Callard was so ''giddy'' when he fiance Jon McEwan proposed to her, she forgot to say yes for an hour
Beverley Callard forgot to accept her fiance's wedding proposal.
The 'Coronation Street' actress - who portrays unlucky-in-love barmaid Liz McDonald in the ITV1 soap - has revealed she was so "giddy" at the romantic gesture on a Spanish beach, she didn't give her long-term partner Jon McEwan an answer for almost an hour.
She said: "When he proposed I was in flip-flops, a bikini and a sarong, a floppy hat and no make-up. I had no idea he was about to propose - we were just chilling out and he suddenly said, 'Bev, there's something I really think we should talk about. I really think we should be married. Will you be my wife?' I just sat there gobsmacked. We got really giddy. About an hour later he said to me, 'You haven't actually answered my question.' "
Beverley and Jon have been together for seven years, and the 53-year-old actress will be given away by her son Josh - from a previous relationship.
She added to OK! magazine: "It was gorgeous, because he rang my son Josh beforehand and asked for his permission to marry me. Because my dad died a long time ago, Josh is going to give me away at the wedding, which will be such a proud moment."
