What is The Teacher with Sheridan Smith all about?

The four-part drama stars 40-year-old Sheridan as Jenna Garvey, a popular teacher with a chaotic private life.

Her world turns upside down when she’s accused of sleeping with her young pupil, Kyle, after a night out.

However, there’s a wrinkle.

With no memory of the night in question, Jenna’s only hope of clearing her name lies in uncovering the truth about a dark event in her past that returns to haunt her.

Sounds like a very controversial psychological drama. Stand by to be gripped!

What did Sheridan think about working with Kelvin?

With the likes of Kelvin Fletcher, Sharon Rooney and former Corrie star Ian Puleston Davies appearing alongside Sheridan, there are plenty of recognisable names to look out for.

In fact, Sheridan couldn’t wait to work with Kelvin.

“I hadn’t worked with Kelvin, but I championed him on Strictly and I’d seen him on Emmerdale for years, I always thought he was a great actor,” she says.

“He’s a really nice guy and Jenna has a really complex relationship with his character.

“She so lost, she’s craving love but in all the wrong places and he’s a married man.”
