‘We both remain completely committed to raising our beautiful boy Billy together. We ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time. Thank you.’

A source told OK! at the time: ‘Sheridan is struggling to get through the split. She put him out there for everyone to see and she really thought he was The One.’  

Sheridan confirmed her split from long-term partner Jamie little more than a year after they welcomed their son Billy together, the couple’s only child. 

Jamie proposed to Sheridan in May 2018 and the couple were living together in a rented property in North London.

He later appeared onscreen alongside her in a one-off documentary, titled Sheridan Smith: Becoming Mum, filmed for ITV. 

It was released in 2020 and followed her pregnancy as a first time parent.
