Sheridan Smith, Alison Steadman & Sinead Keenan to Star in Care

Today the BBC have announced the cast for Jimmy McGovern's latest BBC One drama, Care.

The 90-minute drama is written by Jimmy McGovern (Broken, The Accused, The Street) and Gillian Juckes, whose real life experiences formed the inspiration for the story.

Sheridan Smith plays Jenny, a mother-of-two raising her girls alone after the departure of her husband Dave. Her one lifeline is Mary, played by Alison Steadman, Jenny’s widowed mother whose help with childcare allows Jenny to hold down her full-time job at the supermarket.
