Sheridan Smith is starting a new life on a farm

She's making a big change

She has many strings to her bow, and now Sheridan Smith is planning to take on a farm and she even wants to bring out her own brand of wellies!

The Cilla actress has revealed she wants a bit of ‘The Good Life’ and aspires to create a home around her love of animals.

And while many celebrities opt to put their face to a fashion line, the 37-year-old is thinking about bringing out her own line of “Wellington boots” to match her new venture.

Now, that’s original!

Speaking at the launch of her upcoming drama, Cleaning Up, the star revealed that she has already built up quite a menagerie after rescuing different animals.

“I’ve just moved away into the countryside. I’ve always wanted to move away and have my farm and just be surrounded by animals,” she said.

She continued: “So that’s happening at the minute and it’s really exciting. I’ve bought four donkeys, two goats and two pigs. I’ve rescued them.

“I’m not very good with money but I’m starting to get better. I’m starting to get financial advice on things now instead of just buying more animals.”

Sheridan’s fresh start in the country comes after a difficult couple of years, following her beloved father Colin’s cancer diagnosis and his passing in December 2016.

She now has her wedding to fiancé Jamie Horn to look forward to after he surprised her with a proposal in May this year.

The pair met on dating app Tinder and enjoyed a three-month, whirlwind romance before the City broker popped the question.

Sheridan may be beginning a new life on the farm but she is still dedicated to acting.

Her new role in Cleaning Up, which airs next year on ITV, will see her play struggling mum-of-two Sam, who cleans offices to pay gambling debts and stop her ex from getting custody of their children.

She even took a specialist cleaning course to make her character convincing.

That training might come in handy when you are mucking out your animals, Sheridan!
