Sheridan was hailed last year for being the subject of documentary Sheridan Smith: Becoming Mum.

In it she addressed her battles with anxiety and depression and fears both could return after giving birth.

She said at the time: “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.”
