I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’s Beverley Callard has revealed that her mother-in-law has been bragging to her mate’s about son Jon McEwan’s ‘megashag’ nickname.
The Coronation Street star was left mortified after leaving Gwrych Castle in Wales and discovering that a private conversation about her husband’s abilities in bed had been aired to the nation.
But while she’s cringing about it, Jon, and his mum, have been more than happy about it.
Speaking on I’m A Celebrity: A Castle Story tonight, Beverley told the cameras: ‘I really thought they would edit that out.
‘I was convinced my mother-in-law wouldn’t speak to me. She’s 88 and she’s really proud.
‘Now she’s telling people that’s her son.’
Beverley spoke about Jon, her husband of 10 years, in a frank discussion about sex while in the jungle.
She told co-camper Vernon Kay: ‘He is a mega shag and he dances for me in the kitchen every morning and makes me laugh my socks off. He’s gorgeous!’
‘I do actually call him that though Vernon. I go, “Jon! You are my mega shag!”’
The nickname became iconic, with hosts Ant and Dec having a field day as they used it at any opportunity they could.
They later apologised because of the embarrassment it caused her.
But while Bev wasn’t best pleased, Jon has been embracing it – even changing his name on Twitter in the nickname’s honour and admitting ‘there were worse nicknames to go by’.
