News Image
ITV has announced details of a special one-off television special with Sheridan Smith.

Smith, who is a singer and multi award-winning actress, will headline her own show which is scheduled to air later this year.

The star of ITV shows such as Mrs Biggs and Cilla, Sheridan will showcase exclusive performances of songs from her new album, as well as an array of musical numbers, all accompanied by a live orchestra. She will also discuss her life, career and status as a national treasure.

Made by ITV Studios, the show will celebrate Sheridan and her love of music and performing.

Commenting on the news, she said: "I am so excited to be performing my songs and sharing my journey with my fans, friends and family. It's a dream come true."

Lee Connolly, Creative Director for ITV Entertainment, said: "With such a stellar career as an actor, it's easy to forget that Sheridan is also a wonderful singer. With brilliant performances in ITV's Cilla and as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl it reminded us why Sheridan is such a special and unique performer and we are delighted to be making this one off special with her."

Sheridan will be made by ITV Studios and will air on ITV this autumn. It was commissioned by Head of Entertainment Commissioning ITV, Siobhan Greene. Lee Connolly is the Executive Producer for ITV Studios.
