But viewers were baffled to learn that Sue is 78 and Helen is 71 - meaning that there is only a seven-year age gap between them.One viewer tweeted: "Just checked, in real life Audrey is 78 and Gail is 71!" While another commented: "They both look amazing!" A third wrote: "They both look great for their age!" It comes after Su spoke about how Audrey is left feeling over her family's treatment of her.READ MORE: Sugababes announce first UK tour in 20 years - including two Scottish dates READ MORE: Who is Jermain Defoe's wife Donna Tierney?Read more on dailyrecord.co.uk
