I'm A Celeb fans can't believe Sue Cleaver's age saying 'she looks so good' | The Sun

I'M A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here fans have been left in shock at Sue Cleaver's age, as they gushed over her as "looking so good".

The actress – who is best known for her role in Coronation Street – looked glamorous in a jumpsuit during the first episode of the new series of the hit ITV competition.

Sue, who plays Eileen Grimshaw on Corrie, wowed fans with her age as she introduced herself in her initial VT last night.

Introducing herself, she told fans watching: "I've been on Corrie for nearly 23 years, it's a long time, I'm very old. I'm 59.

"I need to challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone, so this is my year of doing new things."

Viewers couldn't believe that Sue was approaching 60 – and took to social media to gush over her glam look and youthful skin.

Sue has been a major star in the soap since 2000, with her character Eileen married to serial killer Pat Phelan.

It is not yet known if Sue’s exit from Corrie is a permanent one or not.

Asked about her preparations for the jungle, Sue told The Sun and other press: "No, I've been trying to get the scenes filmed that they needed filming at work before I came out here. 

“So my priority has been getting my proper work done before I headed out."

Sue admitted she has got some helpful advice from her Corrie pals who have previously appeared on I’m A Celebrity.

Her on-screen boss Simon Gregson, and neighbour Jennie McAlpine both took part in the show.

"I think they were quite surprised when they heard that I was going to do it,” Sue explained of their helpful advice.

"They haven't told me to watch out for anything. They've just said that you just go and enjoy it and have a great adventure."
