The actress and former “Great British Bake Off” presenter, 51, is best known for her on-screen partnership with Mel Giedroyc. The comedic double act, known as Mel and Sue, has been performing together since the 1990s before moving on to television presentation. However, the couple’s friendship was struck by major shock when Sue discovered in 2015, while working on the show “Supersizers”, that she had developed a brain tumor.
The presenter also made headlines this week, talking about when she received the heartbreaking news.
In recent years, Sue has also gained attention for sharing her perspective on topics far removed from her personal life and the world of television.
In 2019, the presenter immersed himself in the Brexit debate through a series of social media posts.
Sue took to Twitter after then-Prime Minister Theresa May had her Brexit deal rejected by 230 votes in the worst defeat in history for an incumbent government.

Sue said: “History will record that [it] It took Theresa May two years, billions of pounds in wasted revenue and a historic defeat in the House of Commons before even considering reaching out to the House and parties on this, the biggest crisis of our time. generation.
She added: “I think a consensus between the parties could have been reached over the past two years.
“It’s a shame the way Scotland, for example, has been treated by this process – as if their country’s wishes don’t deserve consideration.”
MEPs voted 432 to 202 against Ms May’s deal, which determined how the UK would leave the EU.
The PM said the PM’s proposal to extend the Brexit deadline was proof that she was trying to ‘delay time’ and not listen to MPs.
Britain left the EU last year and has since negotiated with the 27-member bloc over its trade deals with Northern Ireland, among others.
On Monday, Sue spoke more about when medical examinations showed she had developed a tumor on the hormone-producing pituitary gland at the base of her brain.
She told BBC Radio 4 that she had gone through a “very, very dark period” since the tumor began to have an increasing impact on her life.
She said: “Sometimes it’s big and it drives me crazy, and sometimes it’s small and it’s in the background.
“Sometimes it messes up my hormones. I now have several tests to make sure the side effects aren’t too expensive.
Sue said she heard the news in a “very clinical little white room” where a woman said “” your blood is very bad and you have a brain tumor. “
