As she opens up about her personal battles in a new documentary.
The last time Sheridan Smith was on our TV screens acting was last Christmas in Ratburger and in The Moorside for BBC One earlier that year. She'll soon be back on our screens in BBC One drama Care, ITV drama Cleaning Up and Channel 4 drama Adult Material. But before then, ITV are offering us an intimate insight into Sheridan's life in Sheridan Smith: Coming Home.
The one-off TV documentary promises to give viewers a revealing look into the person behind the headlines as for the first time and in her own words, Sheridan talks about her life addressing personal battles.
She'll reveal all about the love she has for her family and the film will follow the star as she embarks on some of her toughest personal and professional challenges. It'll be shot by renowned director, Tim Pope
The cameras will capture intimate moments as the award-winning actress heads back to her hometown of Doncaster for the first time since losing her father where she performs a very special emotional one-off homecoming gig back on the stage where she sang with her parents as a child.
Speaking about the documentary, Sheridan says “Filming this documentary has been an incredible emotional rollercoaster. Re- visiting old haunts and finally performing at the Bentley Top Club where my parents featured regularly has been a very therapeutic experience and has made me realise just how important my roots, family and friends are…”
The documentary also explore her lifelong passion for music as she prepares to release her second album, A Northern Soul. Following the success of Sheridan’s debut album (2017's second biggest debut from a British female artist), the new album sees Sheridan delve into her own life experiences to co-write a heartfelt and deeply personal collection of songs.
ITV’s Head of Entertainment Siobhan Greene said “We are chuffed to bits to be working with Sheridan again in Sheridan Smith: Coming Home. She’s a very special and talented girl whose honesty and heart burns brightly through the screen. It’s a never before seen insight into her real life and how that’s inspired her music. And how fab that viewers are going to see it all in Doncaster too.”
Sheridan Smith: Coming Home will air later this year on ITV
