I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here star Beverley Callard stunned fans when she casually referred to her husband Jon McEwan as ‘Megashag’.

With viewers getting the name trending on Twitter, Jon has decided to wear it as a badge of honour, quite literally, in his new Twitter profile picture.

Sharing a snap of himself grinning away, the biker showed off his jacket with ‘Megashag’ emblazoned on it.

‘Finally got a road name I can be proud of!! Thank you @Beverleycallard,’ he wrote.

Coronation Street star Beverley left fans in stitches when she gave her hubby of 10 years the nickname in a bid to describe to her fellow campmates just how much she loves him.

‘Jon’s very handsome,’ she insisted. ‘He’s a megashag. And he dances for me every morning in the kitchen and he makes me laugh my socks off. He’s gorgeous!’


‘I do actually call him that,’ she insisted to Vernon Kay of the bizarre nickname, giggling as she demonstrated: ‘Jon! You are my megashag!’

Presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly certainly didn’t let it pass them by, urging viewers to get the phrase trending on Twitter.

Meanwhile, it seems the couple are more in love than ever, with Jon revealing he’s secretly planning a sweet vow renewal to ‘reaffirm their love’ when the Liz McDonald star returns from the castle.

Inspired by his partner, Jon said on Loose Women: ‘When she went through all the operations I thought to myself, “If she can do this…”, about three months ago, she couldn’t even walk properly.

‘I started planning [the vow renewal] then, I’m the fourth husband believe it or not and I thought, I can cement this deal and renew the vows. It’s almost there in the planning, Covid-19 permitting.’

Jon has been doing all of this in secret and explained Beverley has ‘no idea’. ‘I’ve never really understood why people renew their wedding vows, but I kind of do now. We’ve been through so much together, we should just reaffirm our love basically,’ he said.

He even gave a rehearsal of his vow proposal live on air, as he pretended to be talking to Beverley directly and said: ‘Beverly, I love you, you were a Queen before you even walked in [camp], we’re together and we’re going to do this, this time just for us.’

Beverley has been married four times. She wed her first husband, Paul Atkinson in 1974, who she shares daughter Rebecca with.

In 1980, the star married ex David Sowden and went on to wed her third husband Steve Called in 1989. She and Steve are parents to son Joshua.

I’m A Celebrity continues daily at 9pm on ITV.
