    Sheridan Smith found it tough having "no help" with a new baby in lockdown

    The 'Cilla' star welcomed son Billy into the world in May with her fiancé Jamie Horn but admits it was tough having her new arrival during the coronavirus pandemic


    Speaking during a Q&A session, she said: "We were in lockdown for eight weeks after that with no help and we hadn't had antenatal classes, so it was a bit of a scary time."

    Meanwhile, Sheridan previously revealed she was worried that her mental health would worsen when she was pregnant or when she became a mother.

    She shared: "The bigger jobs that you get, if you doubt yourself internally, then you constantly think that you are not as good as they think you are. And then my Dad died and I think maybe things that I hadn't dealt with caused the big explosion, mentally ... It was like a bomb went off in my head ... Now I feel like I've got a second chance at life. It's such a huge thing to have a baby.

    "I would hate for the wheels to come off during pregnancy or post pregnancy. There are so many women out there who feel the same as me, who are just as scared as me, and we need to go and get some answers. At the start of my pregnancy, I'd just got myself to a good place and I thought, 'Please don't let this be a turning point where things change for me.' That was my biggest worry."

    The 39-year-old actress admits it never "crossed her mind" to have children before she met Jamie.

    She added: "Having a baby never crossed my mind until I met Jamie. I love him so much. He's so brilliant. He's going to be a great dad. I just hope I'm a good mum. I just hope I'm a good mum."
