During the show, Sheridan revealed she was worried her pregnancy would bring up old issues following the death of her dad in 2016.

She said: “My dad died and I think things that I hadn’t dealt with caused the big explosion, mentally.

“It was like a bomb went off in my head. Now I feel like I’ve got a second chance at life.

“It’s such a huge thing to have a baby. If you’ve had a mental health issue in the past, you worry it will rear its ugly head again. I would hate for the wheels to come off.”
