The 'Coronation Street' actress paid tribute to her late co-star - who played Deirdre Barlow and sadly died in 2015 after a battle with cancer - on Tuesday (19.01.21) after sharing the screen with her plenty of times over the years.

Sharing a nostalgic snap of them together, she wrote on social media: "6 years ago I lost my darling friend. Miss her every single day, love never dies xx (sic)"

Friends and fellow stars responded, including her fellow 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' campmates.

Victoria Derbyshire commented: "Sending so much love".

Jordan North added: "Lovely photo Beverly (sic)"

Former 'Corrie' actress Helen Flanagan shared a red heart, and Charlie Condou wrote: "Two of the most gorgeous ladies, inside and out".

Meanwhile Beverley, 63, recently revealed how cobbles legend Julie Goodyear - who played Bet Lynch on the cobbles on and off from 1966 until 2003 - helped her cope with her own cancer battle.

Writing in her book 'Unbroken', the former Liz McDonald actress explained: "Although I was adamant that a hysterectomy was the right answer, the thought of it was still traumatic.

“I was just 33 years old, with an 18-month-old baby and I was about to have an operation that I thought would turn me into an old lady.

“One night I lay awake crying, thinking, ‘Is this the end of womanhood?’ I didn’t admit it to anyone but I was scared...

"Julie Goodyear was completely fantastic. I’d had loads of people saying, ‘Oh, you poor thing, having to go through a hysterectomy,’ and that just makes you feel worse than ever.

“But Julie had a very different approach. One day I was in my dressing room and I heard this knocking on the door.

“When I went to open it, Julie was standing there wearing a balaclava. ‘What are you doing?’ I said. ‘Just thought you needed something to make you laugh,’ she giggled."
