She is starring in a new TV series psychological thriller on Channel 5 that follows the story of a teacher accused of a drunken sexual encounter with one of her students.
Sheridan will star as Jenna on the TV show titled Teacher and star alongside It’s a Sin star David Fleeshman.
Channel 5 released a recap of the upcoming show, writing, “With no memory of the night in question, Jenna’s only hope for redemption lies in revealing the truth about a dark event in her past that haunts her again.”
The four-part series, which will include both Strictly Come Dancing star Kelvin Fletcher and Sharon Rooney from My Mad Fat Diary, is expected to air later in 2021.

Sheridan recently spoke to Mail On Sunday’s You Magazine, where she gave her talk on motherhood.
The Two Pints of Lager actress was known for her erratic behavior, anxiety, and self-doubts, admitting, “ I don’t think I’ve ever felt like this before.
‘No matter what happened in my career, I’ve always felt insecure, worried about what people thought of me. And now I feel happy. That is new.
‘I never knew I would be this person – a mother. Things used to seem so complicated, and now everything is so simple. I love Billy so much. I hold him and he looks at me and I know that he loves me too and that he needs me.
‘I’ve been looking for this all my life. I’ve looked in the wrong places – nightclubs, going out drinking, pushing myself with work. Now I have found in this little baby that I am at peace with everything. ‘
