Beverley Callard joins Piers Morgan to look back on her acting career and turbulent personal life.
 
The Coronation Street star, who's played Liz McDonald since 1989, reveals how a nervous breakdown led her to the brink of suicide and tells of how she was treated with Electroconvulsive therapy, more commonly known as electric shock treatment.
 
She also reflects on her four marriages, opens up about her grandfather, who was jailed for killing a man, and comes clean about the time she spent the night with her former Coronation Street co-star, Charlie Lawson, who played Liz's husband, Jim McDonald.
