The 61-year-old actress - who has played the former barmaid in the soap since the 1980s - has joked that her alter-ego's fashion choice will have viewers in hysterics and that she'd rather prance around in a bikini than wear what she's been told to slip into.

Taking to her Twitter account, she wrote: "Well, Liz's new outfit!!!! Costume department are giggling! Oh dear. You'll see it soon. X That's it! I'm in the next " love Island!" Bikinis must be better than Liz's wardrobe. Lol. X (sic)"

Beverley has previously joked she should be paid "a fortune" to wear some of the garish outfits her alter-ego Liz dons on the ITV soap.

In response to a fan who tweeted to ask how much extra 'Corrie' bosses had paid Beverley to wear a pink blouse on a recent episode, she replied: "Yep, you're right Liz's clothes just get worse!!! X Lol. I should be earning a fortune! X (sic)"

But it's not just her character's fashion choices she doesn't agree with as Beverley has admitted she's disgusted with Liz's standards of behaviour on the cobbles.

In response to a viewer who tweeted her to say Liz has the "morals of an alley cat", she wrote: "Yes I'm afraid you're right. X (sic)"
