"He is a mega sh*g and he dances for me in the kitchen every morning and makes me laugh my socks off."

She continued: "He's gorgeous!"

But who is her talented beau, and what is their marriage like?

Who is Beverley Callard’s husband Jon McEwan?

Jon is Beverley’s fourth husband, and he is a recording studio owner.

He has multiple tattoos, and the couple live together in Salford greater Manchester, with an adorable dog.

How did Beverley and Jon meet?

Beverley told OK! magazine that the couple met on a blind date

She said: “We were set up on a blind date by some mutual friends.”

She continued: "I really didn’t want to go because at the time I thought all men were [bleeps] and I wanted to stay single forever.

"We organised one date and I chickened out and stood him up.

“Then, on the second attempt, I turned up and saw he had a shaved head, a gold tooth and was covered in tattoos and I thought, what am I doing?!”

When did Beverley and Jon marry?

The pair got married back in 2010, after Jon had proposed to her on a beach in Spain.

However, Jon is planning on proposing to his wife for a second time.

The doting hubby recently appeared on Loose Women, where he said: "I think we've been through so much together that… no matter where she gets to in the castle – I just want to reaffirm our love, basically."

"I want to take her to one side and I'll say 'I've got it all planned, it's all done. You've just got to come with me and here we go and this is what we're going to do.'"

Jon was then asked what he would say to Beverley if she were watching and he said: "Beverley, I love you. You were the queen before you even walked in.

"No matter where you come, where you go, we're together. We're going to do this one more time, just for us."

What is their relationship like?

Beverley has previously opened up on how Jon helped her when she was suicidal following her late mother's Alzheimer's diagnosis and debts of £150,000 from the couple’s failed pub business.

She went to stay at the Priory in 2009, and described to The Mirror that Jon saved her while she was there.

She said: "It wasn't just the fact that Jon rumbled me to the nurses that saved me from ending it all.

"It was much more than that. He stood by me, through everything. He never gave up trying to understand my torment.

"Even though after visiting me he'd go to his car and cry his heart out.

Beverley also opened up to OK! about how she once thought she had lost her husband, after he collapsed in a supermarket back in 2016.

She revealed: "Jon’s my rock. I see him as indestructible so when I was told he had collapsed, I just went numb.

"He is never ill. What happened came completely out of the blue.
