Coronation Street star Beverley Callard celebrated her 60th birthday this week and as a special surprise, the Loose Women panel reunited her with on-screen husband Charlie Lawson.

Beverley, who plays Liz McDonald on the ITV soap, broke down as she said: "I love that man. I'm crying now!"

Charlie's character Jim McDonald is currently serving a jail sentence for armed robbery in an attempt to get Liz the money to buy the Rovers.

Jim had a fiery relationship with wife Liz and was last seen on the ITV soap in 2011 when he was sentenced for seven years.

He made a brief return to Weatherfield back in 2014 when Peter Barlow (played by Chris Gascoyne) was wrongly imprisoned for murdering Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan) and Jim went on to blackmail him in order to get back in contact with his son.

On Friday's Loose Women, Bev's Corrie sons Simon Gregson and Nick Cochrane (Steve and Andy MacDonald) also wished her a happy birthday via video messages.

Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm and Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, both on ITV.
