I'm A Celebrity: Who is Sue Cleaver's husband and do they have children?

Coronation Street fans have been delighted to see actor Sue Cleaver in the I’m A Celebrity jungle.

The Eileen Grimshaw star, 59, has played her role in the hit ITV soap since the year 2000 – but there’s now a chance for fans to get to know her away from the relative comfort of the Cobbles.

Not a spotlight-seeker, Sue has previously said of her personal life: ‘I do keep my life private and I am very happy with my home life.’

But for anyone wondering, who is Sue’s husband, and what has she said about him?

And does she have any kids?

Who is Sue Cleaver’s husband?

Sue is married to Brian Owen, a lighting technician for ITV.

The couple met on Coronation Street, and left their previous relationships to be together in the early 2000s.

They’ve been together ever since.

As of 2019, it seems the pair still work together on the Corrie set, too – as Sue revealed during a segment on This Morning, where she discussed her terrifying battle with sepsis.

She told Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: ‘My husband, who also works on Corrie, he was on a night shoot and he had to ring me.

‘He said to his colleagues – something’s not right, I can’t hear what she’s saying because her teeth are chattering so much… He rang our daughter-in-law who’s a paramedic and she said, ‘Get her to hospital’.’


The couple share a pup named George Paws, who often features on Sue’s Instagram.

Previously, Sue was married to actor James Quinn from 1993 to 2003, who she met in 1991.

Fans might recognise James from roles in soaps including Corrie (as D.S. Willetts), Emmerdale, Hollyoaks, and Doctors, as well as TV series Early Doors and 2017 film Apostasy.

The exes appear to get along well, and even put on a play together in 2009 – called Marriages Made In Heaven.

James told Manchester Evening News at the time: ‘It’s quite funny to be doing this with Sue. Although we got divorced, we get on well, but we haven’t acted together on stage since we first met in a play in 1991.’

Does Sue Cleaver have children?

Sue has one son, Elliott Quinn, reportedly born in 1998, who she shares with ex-husband James.

We don’t know much about Elliott, though he did appear at the 2018 British Soap Awards for a rare walk down the red carpet with his mum – though it seems he’s now a parent himself.


Yep, Sue is also a grandma!

She recently took Instagram to reveal she’d become a grandmother for the fourth time, in fact – with a few heart emojis alongside an adorable snap of the newborn baby.

It’s not entirely clear how many children her husband, Brian, has from previous relationships.

I’m A Celebrity airs at 9pm on ITV.
