Sheridan Smith says she wants to start a family with fiancé

And it is all thanks to her recent stint on the West End

Sheridan Smith has revealed that she's keen on starting a family with her fiancé Jamie Horn.

The actress and singer, 38, has just finished a run of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the London Palladium, a show in which she appeared alongside a cast of kids.

And she told that the experience has made her broody.

"They are all an utter joy and have made the whole experience for me.

"I will cherish the memories and watch their careers flourish. Me and Jamie now are thinking of making me a mamma. All thanks to these amazing souls."

She told "Oh God, I don't know. Yes, on the one hand, but then am I actually ready? Could I cope?

"I have to ask myself serious questions like this. My mum tells me she knows I could. She watched me with my dad in the last few days of his life, and told me if I could be that caring I would be a perfect mother.

"But I don't know. I just know I'm not perfect."

Sheridan fell for City worker Jamie, 28, in 2018 after they met up through the dating app Tinder.

Shortly after they started dating, Jamie's mum told Mail Online: "When James first met her as a friend a few years ago, he had absolutely no idea she was famous."
