Sue Cleaver, a star of Coronation Street, has said that she will be joining the ITV soap opera again in January after taking a break to seek a role in the musical Sister Act.

Renowned Coronation Street actress Sue Cleaver has revealed that she would be making a comeback to the show in January.

The 60-year-old actress, who has been Eileen Grimshaw’s onscreen character since 2000, decided to take a hiatus from the ITV serial opera in order to concentrate on her career in theatre after being cast for a touring role in the musical Sister Act. However, the renowned performer will now return in July. She said in a recent interview: “I’ve completed Sister Act, but I really miss everyone. I hadn’t been on stage in thirty years, yet I had the best experience doing that performance. I just decided to accept the situation and go for it. I thought, “Nope, this is awesome,” despite my fear and the fact that it was unknown. I said to myself, “Let’s just go for this.”

She continued, saying in an interview with OK!, “I had the best time. Everywhere we performed, there were standing ovations and packed houses. I shall really miss everyone, but you have to complete one task before moving on to the next.” She hasn’t ruled out doing additional theatrical work either, even after returning to the show. “I definitely think I’ll do more on stage,” she said. That’s where I began, on stage. My first passion has always been theatre. I’ve returned, and this won’t be my last time. However, I’ll be returning to Coronation Street shortly. I’m going to take a brief vacation before returning to Corrie in July so they can see me again. I’ll be back.

In July, Sue Cleaver reveals that she would be going back to Coronation Street.

Sue recently disclosed that she was initially afraid of her Type 2 diabetes diagnosis. “I always say that diabetes lives with me, not that I live with diabetes,” she had previously said. In light of this, I lead a normal life. The I’m a Celebrity… go Me Out of Here! star says, “I get on with my busy life.” “It scared me when I was first diagnosed,” she continued. Then, ever since I began using Dexcom, all of the uncertainty and guesswork was eliminated. It’s simply relieved some of the strain, since I’ve always had my HbA1c, been under a doctor, and had everything checked. I am able to see my averages. I am aware of my tendencies. For me, it has relieved a lot of my anxiety.”

The celebrity was deemed unrecognisable by many in January after her announcement of a three-stone weight reduction. She also had to deny reports a few months before that she used diet popsicles to help her lose weight. She shared with her followers on Instagram, saying, “I’m really, really sad that I have to actually make this video.” Over the last several weeks, I’ve received a good number of mails inquiring about Keto gummies. It’s evident that there is a fraud going around claiming that Keto gummies helped them lose weight, but it’s a joke. It’s a fraud. And I sincerely apologise if it misled you. It’s absurd. I simply want you to know that’s not anything I would ever support.”

Rather, she said that since she was consuming “loads of wine” throughout the epidemic, she just stopped drinking. She told the newspaper: “I went on HRT about a year and a half ago and realised I should have done that about five years ago.” “I was kind of walking around in a fog and then I literally made some massive changes,” she said. After participating in dry January, I began to wonder, “What would life be like if I stopped completely?”
