Corries Vicky Entwhistle snubs Im A Celebs Sue Cleaver with toxic jibe

Coronation Street star Vicky Entwhistle appeared to make a subtle dig at her former colleague Sue Cleaver as she takes part in this year's I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!

Vicky became widely known to fans for playing the role of Janice Battersby in the long-running soap and appeared alongside Sue's character Eileen Grimshaw.

However during the launch episode on Sunday night (November 6), 54 year old Vicky made it clear to her followers on Twitter that she has no plans of watching the popular ITV show.

The actress wrote: "Don’t think I will watch @imacelebrity this season. Have a feeling it may become too toxic."

When her followers questioned the reason behind her stance, she added: "I don't like pack mentality. It's often cruel and unbearable to watch, so I will give it a miss."

Another social media user asked Vicky whether she wanted to see Tory MP Matt Hancock on the show, but this also wasn't enough to entice her.

She replied: "No I actually do not! I am aware members of the public wish him ill but I can not bear to see anyone fall or be crucified live on the telly. I will be swerving this season. Nothing to do with politics, just humanity. Vic."

Meanwhile another social media tweeted an image of Vicky's character being punched by Sue's character Eileen in Corrie.

Responding to the pic, Vicky wrote: "I rest my case," followed by laughing emojis.

The news of the actress' subtle dig comes after Sue wowed fans with her first appearance on the show.

But talking about what will scare her the most while being on the show was the comparison that some viewers may make to her character Eileen.

She said: "This is the scariest part for me, I am a very private person and I am putting myself out there, which is what I am most nervous about.

"Viewers are going to see a different person to the person they think I am! I am very different. That can be worrying.

"They might decide they don’t like me as much as Eileen!"
