Beverley's hip surgery left her in agony without any soft tissue in her right hip, leaving her bones rubbing together.

After waiting three months for corrective surgery, she finally had her second operation in July.

The Liz McDonald star divulged: "I can stand up - and I stand with most of my weight on my left leg.

"If I stand up and pose for photos, I look normal."
