Split: The actress revealed that she parted ways from her husband-to-be Jamie Horn ‘with great sadness’ last month (pictured in 2020)
Last month, it was reported that Sheridan is ‘devastated’ by her split from her fiancé Jamie., after revealing they had parted ways just over a year after they welcomed their first child Billy together.
A source told OK! magazine: ‘Sheridan is struggling to get through the split. She put him out there for everyone to see and she really thought he was The One.’
It was also claimed the split brought back the pain Sheridan felt after losing her father Colin who passed away in 2016 following a battle with cancer.
They said: ‘She had the public falling out with his mother and they got through all of that, but sadly it hasn’t worked out. She’s devastated. This has brought back all the feelings of missing her dad because he was her tower of strength.
‘In her heart she’s hoping they can make it right, but it doesn’t look like there’s any way back. They have a baby together and it’s tough. She’s heartbroken.’
The star and former insurance broker Jamie welcomed their first child last May.
The couple met on the dating app Tinder in 2018 and reportedly got engaged just three months later.
Announcing 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.’
The pair appeared in a one-off ITV documentary last year called Sheridan Smith: Becoming Mum which followed her pregnancy.
Jamie reportedly proposed to Sheridan in May 2018 with a £10,000 ring, and the couple have been residing in a rented property in North London together since.
