According to the Mirror, Corrie bosses told Sue there were "dramatic twists" planned for her cab controller alter ego this year.
A source told the newspaper: "She loves playing Eileen. She is so excited at the great story being lined up for her."
Weatherfield favourites Ashley Peacock, played by Steven Arnold, and Claire Peacock (Julia Haworth) are being written out of the soap under new producer Phil Collinson.
Earlier this month, Sue, who has played Eileen Grimshaw for 10 years, was handed a 17-month driving ban for a drink-drive conviction.
