Who is Sue Cleaver’s husband?
Sue Cleaver is married to Brian Owen, an electrician she met while they were both working on Coronation Street, though it is unclear when the pair tied the knot. Sue was previously married to fellow actor James Quinn for 10 years before she broke off the relationship in 2003.
Sue and James have remained good friends since their break-up, working together on Corrie and the ironically titled play, Marriages Made In Heaven, which hit the stage in 2009.
At the time, James spoke to The Manchester Evening News and detailed what it was like working with his ex. He said, “It’s quite funny to be doing this with Sue. Although we got divorced, we get on well. But [before this] we haven’t acted together on stage since we first met in a play in 1991.”
James is known for his work on Coronation Street, Emmerdale, and Hollyoaks as well as for playing roles such as Phil in Early Doors, Mr. Briggs in Gentleman Jack, and PC Robert Rhymer in Fat Friends.
