‘I had to go to the pharmacy and it was busy and there was quite a queue behind me,’ she explained.

‘And I went up to the counter and I said “morning love. Have you got anything for an STI? I’m just starting with one.”

‘What I meant to say was, “Have you got anything for UTI? Because I’m just starting one.” Oh my god. I don’t know why I said it. My hand’s shaking as I’m holding this.’

She finished the video with an important piece of advice for her 149,000 followers: ‘Don’t get your letters mixed up when you need some medication!’

The video was inundated with comments finding, with several people sharing similar stories of their own.

‘That’s brilliant I hear that every day in my job as a GP receptionist. You are not alone,’ one fan said.

‘You’ll be the talk of the town now Sue,’ another wrote, adding two laughing face emojis.

Sue’s celebrity friends also found the story hilarious, with Tracy Barlow actress Kate Ford and fellow I’m A Celeb campmate Jill Scott MBE both reacted with laughter.

Sue recently opened up about a ‘scary time’ that saw her rushed to intensive care on ITV show Loose Women.

‘I had a hysterectomy in March. Then a few weeks ago, I ended up in A&E, I don’t need to go into details, but I have not been on a diet this year. I have been seriously ill’, she said.

‘It was a scary scary time. I had surgery and ended up in intensive care. There is no diet, there are no gummies. These companies pray on vulnerable people all the time.’

Sue’s reference to ‘gummies’ came after she was targeted by scammers selling weight-loss gummies.
