It is thought that the couple have been dating since at least 2018, after the actress revealed during a performance at the Royal Albert Hall in the same year that she had a boyfriend, before quipping to the audience: "Don't sound so surprised!" The couple met after swiping right on Tinder and had their first date in a bar. Cute!

What has Sheridan Smith and Jamie said about each other?

Viewers were treated to an insight into their relationship during Sheridan's recent documentary Becoming Mum. Jamie said during the ITV show: "On our first date she was so timid, so sweet and nervous. She came into this ram-packed boozer, an hour late. She walked in and literally she gave me this smile from across the bar and that was it."

Jamie and Sheridan recently starred in her documentary Becoming Mum

While appearing on This Morning discussing her documentary, Sheridan told Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield about how Jamie had been supportive of her during her mental health difficulties. The actress said: "It's often hard and partly overlooked on the family and friends of people suffering with mental health, and Jamie had never experienced it before but was reading up on it and now knows me better than I know myself.

"He can see if I'm getting anxious, like this morning before doing this, and he just knows how to calm me down and talk me off the ledge a bit, just keeps me calm, so it's just amazing that I've got such support in him.
