Bev, 61, plays Liz McDonald and her sartorial choices have always been rather risque over the years.
In her storylines Liz has always been quite feisty and adventurous with her style.
However in real life Bev says that she is "the opposite".
Speaking to the Daily Star she said: “I shot a scene last week and it said in the stage directions: ‘Liz is dressed to the nines.’
"Believe me, I was dressed to the tens!
"I literally looked like a tasselled lampshade.
"I didn’t dare step out of my dressing room.
"The outfits are brilliant for the character, but I hide rather than be as brazen as Liz.’’
Bev also revealed that she cannot stand seeing herself on screen so hasn't watched Corrie for ten years.
She said she prefers to watch Emmerdale instead.
Currently her character Liz is involved in one of the most shocking storylines the soap has seen.
Ex husband Jim McDonald returned to the Cobbles recently with their "daughter" Katie – who supposedly died at birth.
A woman pretending to be her has returned to Coronation Street with her "dad" Jim McDonald following his release from prison.
Jim was jailed for armed robbery in 2011 and is now trying to scam Liz.
After an emotional reunion with Liz the charade was revealed when Jim said that Katie did him "proud."
She replied: "Hey, less of the old and certainly less of the dad – you're neither."
In a sickening twist it was then revealed that the fake father and daughter are actually lovers.
Beverly exclusively told the Sun's Soap Bubble that Jim won't necessarily be able to walk away from the cobbles after his evil scam is exposed.
"We're a long way off that now but the scenes are just brilliant.
"You know you get the script and think 'Oh that's good, that's good' but honestly I could not wait to film them."
