How old is Sair Khan? Former I'm A Celebrity campmate who plays Alya Nazir in Coronation Street

December 8, 2018

Here's what we know about the Coronation Street actress and I'm A Celebrity 2018 star who has been evicted from the jungle…

Who is Sair Khan?

Sair Khan was born on February 11, 1988, in Leeds, West Yorkshire – making her 30 years old.

The Corrie star attended the National Youth Theatre and worked in a receptionist role for an advertising agency in London, before taking her role on Britain's longest-running soap.

She also appeared in BBC drama Doctors in 2011.

In June 2014, she made her debut as Alya Nazir on Coronation Street.

Sair (pronounced like 'hair') is also an ambassador for the British Asian Trust, which works to tackle poverty in South Asia.

What's Sair said about taking part in I'm A Celebrity?

The actress told The Sun that she's been getting advice from fellow Corrie star and former jungle camp mate Jennie McAlpine.

She said: "I just want to come to Australia again, because I love Australia and I'm glad to be back.

"Jennie McAlpine told me to enjoy it fully and have the best time."

She also seemed relaxed about the prospect of jungle critters:

"I just want to have fun," she said. "I am outgoing, depending on who I'm around.

"You're not really scarred of anything until you get there and you're faced with it."

When is I'm A Celebrity 2018 on TV?

If you miss the show you can watch it on ITV+1 or catch up via the ITV hub.

The series usually runs for about three weeks and if it follows the previous format and length fans can expect this year's jungle king or queen to be crowned around the second week of December.

This year the show is presented by Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly as Ant McPartlin takes an extended break from TV.

If you haven't had your fill of the jungle, you can switch over to ITV2 for Extra Camp immediately after the main show for behind the scenes footage, guests and interviews.

Viewers are invited to join the lively debates via social media and the app as well as put their questions directly to the campmates live in the studio once they’ve left the Jungle.

This year the Extra Camp will be hosted again by Scarlett Moffatt, Joel Dommett and Joe Swash.
