Sheridan Smith is feeling "broody" after appearing on 'Who Do You Think You Are?'
The 33-year-old actress took part in a traumatic search for her ancestors while appearing on the BBC One show and after finding records of her banjo-playing great
great-grandfather, she revealed her desire to have children of her own.
According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she said: "I'm so proud of how talented he was. This link is so special to me.
"I feel like I want to learn to play, I feel like I have to. It's almost compulsory now.
"The gene has been passed down through my great great grandfather.
"It's made me want to learn to play all sorts of instruments - and maybe have a baby of my own.
"I'm maybe feeling a little broody right now."
Sheridan - who was born and raised in Lincolnshire - discovered that her not-so-distant relative had been a star in his own right, performing to upper class audiences in sold out venues.
However, the 'Mrs. Biggs' star - who comes from a long line of performers - was left devastated as historians told how he lost all his money, his wife, and his four children when he was charged with attempted arson.
She said: "I did not see any of this coming. It's like it was a curse.
"It's heartbreaking. I didn't expect to have such a reaction and to feel so immediately attached but he's the reason I'm here."
