Sheridan Smith has landed her own television show based on her life and career
Sheridan Smith will star in her own "lavish" TV extravaganza.
The 36-year-old actress has admitted it's "a dream come true" to get her own one-off special 'Sheridan', which will see her perform songs from her new album, as well as an array of stunning musical numbers while accompanied by a live orchestra, on ITV as a celebration of her long-running career across the stage and screen.
Sheridan said: "I am so excited to be performing my songs and sharing my journey with my fans, friends and family. It's a dream come true..."
The blonde beauty will also give fans an insight into her personal life, how it is working as an actress and singer, and how she feels about becoming a national treasure.
Lee Connolly, Creative Director for ITV Entertainment, said: "With such a stellar career as an actor, it's easy to forget that Sheridan is also a wonderful singer.
"With brilliant performances in ITV's 'Cilla' and as Fanny Brice in 'Funny Girl' it reminded us why Sheridan is such a special and unique performer and we are delighted to be making this one off special with her."
Sheridan's new project comes less than a year after she was forced to take some time off and cancel her performance at the 'Royal Variety Show' last year when her beloved father Colin tragically passed away at the beginning of December from cancer.
Her representative said at the time: "Sheridan's much loved father sadly passed away this week. We can confirm that she will not be performing at the 'Royal Variety Performance' on December 6th. At this difficult time for Sheridan and her family we would ask that you please respect their privacy."
'Sheridan' will hit screens on ITV later this autumn.
