Coronation Street star Beverley Callard will tell of her battle with depression in a new book.

The actress, who plays Rovers Return landlady Liz McDonald, will release Unbroken: My Story Of Survival on April 15.

Publisher Hodder said of the work: “Beverley Callard’s real life story is even more colourful than her character’s – three broken marriages, 20 years on the nation’s favourite soap and jaw-dropping revelations of breakdowns and bankruptcy.”

Bev’s life is described as one of ‘tremendous highs and devastating lows’.

She took a five-month break from Coronation Street last year to get treatment for a breakdown and depression.

Earlier this year, she revealed she wanted to open up about her experience to help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues.
