Sheridan Smith has announced she's writing her memoirs - with her autobiography coming out later this year.
The new book, Honestly, is set to be published in October 2021, and will chart the highs and lows of the much loved BAFTA-winning actress over the years.
"I never thought myself old enough to write an autobiography, but when I sat down to think about it I realised, in my 40th year, there was a story to tell," explains Sheridan.
Sheridan's been one of the nation's favourite stars for over 20 years, starring in comedy classics like The Royle Family to critically acclaimed drama like the Moorside, on stage on London's West End and releasing two top twenty albums.
"While audiences cheered, critics raved, ratings soared and theatres sold out, for Sheridan, however, all this success and attention brought feelings of imposter syndrome, struggles with her mental health and panic attacks," reads the official announcement.
"As she fought to cope, every vulnerability was scrutinised under the glare of the public eye, adding impossible pressure to an already difficult time for her and her family. Sheridan writes very personally and with powerful immediacy about how she faced her demons down, sought help and fought hard for her recovery.
"Happily settled with her partner and their son Billy, she is ready to share her journey: from growing up in Lincolnshire and those early talent competitions, her rise to fame on screen and stage, and her life off it. Packed with showbiz adventure, funny and warm, but dark times and heartbreak too."
"Speaking with friends and family they reminded me of all the stories over the years... then all of a sudden I realised I had a book," says Sheridan. "Having had a son last year I wanted to document my story for him, so this is my story, in my words."
Honestly by Sheridan Smith will be released on 14 October 2021
