Sheridan previously revealed why her hair is a pixie cut in a 2015 interview with The Killing Times, explaining: "Black Work started just after I had played Lisa Lynch in The C Word and my hair hadn’t really grown back that much at all at that stage.

"We spoke about maybe wearing wigs but then we thought, ‘Why not just go with how I am at the minute?’ So Jo has short black hair, which also fits in with her being a police officer. It made me feel very different to other roles."

She added that her hairdo made it easier for her to remain incognito in public, saying: "No-one really recognised me with my hair like that."

Can’t wait to see what happens tomorrow." Another added: "Oh is #blackwork a repeat? Passed me by last time then!"
