Sheridan revealed she had finished filming Teacher earlier this year and it is her first acting role since becoming a mother to son Billy, 12 months. 

The actress uploaded an snap from the final day of filming to her Instagram in April as she posed with It’s A Sin star David Fleeshman.

In the caption, Sheridan tagged Coronation Street star Richard Fleeshman, writing: ‘Me and @rfleeshman‘s lovely talented dad! Playing my pretend dad! What a great actor to finish a great job with.’

Sheridan welcomed her first child, Billy, in May last year with her fiancé Jamie Horn.

The first-time mum spoke to the Mail On Sunday’s YOU Magazine in December, where she opened up about motherhood, saying: ‘I don’t think I’ve ever felt like this before.

‘Regardless of anything going on in my career I’ve always felt insecure, worried about what people thought of me. And now I feel happy. That is a novelty.

‘I never knew I would be this person – a mum. Things used to seem so complicated, and now suddenly everything is so simple. I love Billy so much. I hold him and he’s looking at me and I know he loves me back and he needs me.

‘I’ve been looking for this all my life. I’ve looked in the wrong places – in nightclubs, going out drinking, pushing myself with work. Now in this little baby I’ve found that I’m at peace with everything.’
