Sheridan Smith: 9 Facts In 90 Seconds On The 'Cilla' And 'Gavin & Stacey' Star

Sheridan Smith

Sheridan Smith is popping up on our TV screens more often than Sarah Lancashire and Olivia Colman put together these days (no mean feat), and her latest role in 'Cilla' playing the legendary Liverpudlian crooner, is one of her most successful yet.

So successful, in fact, that when Sheridan performed Cilla's classic No.1 hit 'Anyone Who Had A Heart' in the hit drama, she helped catapult the song back into the charts - Cilla's first hit in forty years.

But despite being an almost permanent feature on the box thanks to her roles in everything from 'The Royle Family' and 'Gavin & Stacey' to 'Mrs. Biggs' and 'Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps', we still don't know too much about the woman behind the many characters she has played.

Well, that's all about to change dear readers as we present 9 ever-so-interesting-and-not-very-well-known-factoids on television's ubiquitous queen of primetime in less than one and a half minutes, because, well, you've probably got another episode of 'Cilla' to watch.
