When Lorraine asked Sue if she would be keeping the colour, she said: “I’d love to, I don’t think they’ll let me.

“It’s the only time in my life that I could just do what I wanted with my hair so I thought ‘I’m going to do it.’ But don’t worry it does wash out.”

Fans went on Twitter to say how much they love Sue’s hair and that they think it makes her look much younger.
