In her ITV documentary, Becoming Mum, which aired last year, the 40-year-old opened up about motherhood and revealed how it gave her a "second chance at life".

Sheridan said: "My dad died and I think things that I hadn't dealt with caused the big explosion, mentally. It was like a bomb went off in my head. Now I feel like I’ve got a second chance at life.

"It's such a huge thing to have a baby. If you've had a mental health issue in the past, you worry it will rear its ugly head again. I would hate for the wheels to come off."

In July, it was revealed that Sheridan had parted ways from her partner Jamie after three years. In May 2018, it was reported that Jamie had got down on one knee with a £10,000 engagement ring and popped the question to Sheridan.

At the time of their split, they told The Sun: "It is with great sadness that we have decided to have some time apart. 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."
