Sheridan Smith and The Enemy's Andy Hopkins date
'Cilla' actress Sheridan Smith has enjoyed secret dates with The Enemy's bassist Andy Hopkins
Sheridan Smith is dating The Enemy's bassist Andy Hopkins.
The 'Cilla' actress, 34, and 29-year-old rocker have been developing their romance in secret and are now reportedly an item after Sheridan contacted the musician directly through social media site Twitter.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Straight away there was chemistry.
"They're quite alike as neither of them take fame very seriously, though they are both passionate about their careers."
Despite their high profile careers the stars haven't been photographed out together and aren't too bothered about the media spotlight.
Meanwhile, unlucky-in-love Sheridan previously dated Hollyoaks actor Greg Wood and revealed she was "hurt by an idiot boy" after he apparently cheated on her with his co-star Tamara Wall.
She wrote on Twitter in July: "Just been hurt by an idiot boy again but not gonna lower myself to his standards."
The actress has also been linked to 'The Late Late Show' host James Corden, 37, in the past and the two have remained firm friends.
However the 'We'll Live and Die In These Towns' rocker Andy - who hails from Coventry and loves Oasis - could be just the type of down-to-earth lad that Sheridan needs.
