Charles brought Bev a birthday cake in the shape of the Rovers Return.
She said: “My doctor seems to think I’m bipolar two. which I didn’t really know what that was. With ordinary bipolar you get massive highs and massive lows and I don’t get the massive highs. I get the bad bits really.”
Describing the illness she added: “If you’re a strong person it can get you down. I think depression is the curse of the strong.”
