“IT must be a horrible feeling to trust someone and then find out they weren’t who they said they were.”
Sheridan Smith talking to me about her role as Jo Gillespie in new three-part drama Black Work.
It’s always a pleasure to speak to Sheridan and this latest encounter came just after she had been to Buckingham Palace to collect her OBE from Prince William:
“An unforgettable day. Absolutely magical, like a dream. I will never, ever, forget it.”
The intriguing Black Work begins on ITV at 9pm this Sunday (June 21) and is the first time Sheridan has played a police officer.

It also contains my interviews with co-stars Matthew McNulty and Geraldine James.
In a strong cast featuring Phil Davis, Douglas Henshall, Ace Bhatti, Kenny Doughty, Carla Henry, Lisa Dillon, Andrew Knott and Sharon Duce.
The latter sparking memories of Sheridan’s earlier encounters with The Royle Family.
Black Work begins on ITV at 9pm on Sunday.
You can watch the first episode in advance from today (Friday June 19) on ITV Player.
