I’m a Celeb: Sue Cleaver becomes third camp mate to be eliminated by public

Sue Cleaver became the third campmate to be voted off I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here on Monday’s (21 November) episode.

The actor best known for playing Eileen Grimshaw on Coronation Street, was delighted to be returning to her family after two weeks in the jungle.

Cleaver’s elimination followed that of broadcaster Charlene White, who left on Friday 18 November, and A Place in the Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas on Sunday 20 November.

During her exit interview with Ant and Dec, Cleaver sang the praises of her “jungle husband” Mike Tindall and expressed her desire for Lioness football star Jill Scott to win the competition.

Earlier in Monday’s episode, Cleaver became the second celebrity to skip her turn sleeping in the RV. “The RV is not luxurious, the RV needs to be chopped down into firewood,” she told the Bush Telegraph.

During her time on the show, Cleaver told the extraordinary story of how she came to be reunited with her birth mother.

The 59-year-old said that on her first day of production at a play in Manchester, she was approached by a fellow actor who said: “Oh my god, she’s the absolute double of my wife when I met her.” The man then asked for her date of birth.

Cleaver said the man then asked where she was born, and when she replied “Barnet”, the man rung his wife and he said: “I’ve found her.”
