Sue Cleaver leaves I’m A Celeb viewers in tears with bombshell

Last night’s I’m a Celebrity saw Sue Cleaver revealed a shocking family secret.

The Coronation Street legend, 59, joined her other campmates around the fire to discuss her adoption story.

Things quickly turned emotional, with the fellow celebs praising Sue for speaking so candidly.

It’s not thought her adoption is something she has discussed publicly before.

Sitting with comedian Seann Walsh and footballer Jill Scott, Sue explained she met her birth mother by fortunate coincidence.

“I was at drama school,” she explained. “I was 23 and Royal Exchange were looking for parts for Oedipus.

“There was an actor there, and when I walked in, he said to another actor that I was ‘the double’ of his wife.

“He asked when was my date of birth and where I was born. After that, he rang his wife and said he’d found me.”

While the others around her were shocked, Sue continued that she had struggled when she was younger.

“I was trying on personalities like coats,” she said. “Is this who I am? Does this suit me? I was never my authentic self, ever.”

What are the odds, I mean that is actual fate… 

Thankfully, Sue’s story had a happy ending, with her birth family and her adopted family all getting along.
