Sheridan has also appeared as a guest judge on Ru Paul's UK Drag Race and presented the BBC dog grooming show Pooch Perfect (opens in new tab).

Gavin and Stacey star also candidly shared her struggles with her mental health following her father's death in a documentary called Sheridan Smith: Becoming Mum, last year.

She explained,"My dad died and I think things that I hadn’t dealt with caused the big explosion, mentally. It was like a bomb went off in my head.

"Now I feel like I’ve got a second chance at life."

Sheridan later admitted that she was having a great time being a mum.

She told Mail Online that it was "the best feeling in the world", adding, "I mean, I left it later in life, but I think it's probably the right thing. I wasn't ready before I met Jamie, and now that I have this little family, I just feel –  I can’t explain it – like a contentment, a calm.

"Maybe I was looking for something in the wrong places and now I feel like I’ve found it in this little boy."
