“Bank holiday pouting with the hubby,” she tweeted.

But now she’s hit back at the rumours, taking to Twitter to claim that “hubby” is just a nickname.

“Every time I call him my hubby people presume we are married,” she said. “It’s just a nickname & I’ll let you know when we decide to get married.”

She went on to remind people to stay sun safe in the warm Easter weather, saying: “I will want you all wearing hats please, so here is me pouting with the ‘fella.'”

Sheridan and mortgage broker Jamie got engaged last year after only three months of dating.

The pair met on Tinder, and hit it off immediately – but Jamie made sure he had Sheridan’s mother’s approval before popping the question.

“I thought, ‘someone’s gonna have me!'” she said.

“When he asked my mum to marry me she said, ‘Are you sure you can handle her?'”
