Sporting a cool sunglasses filter, Sheridan looked incredibly relaxed as she took a break in her dressing room before her latest performance in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.

The star told fans she was glad to be without a hangover in the blistering heatwave, and decided against taking Jamie shopping in favour of keeping cool.

She wrote: ‘He won, it’s too hot to drag him round the shops when he’s hungover back in the air con @thelondonpalladium. #Soberliving rocks. And makes me slightly smug.’

Sheridan then turned the camera to show Jamie lying on the sofa, as he appeared to struggling with the aftermath of his boozy birthday antics.

The singer revealed in June she’d given up alcohol after a string of public meltdowns in the wake of her father Colin’s death, who passed away in 2016.

Sheridan made the decision to quit alcohol as she ‘fell apart completely’ in recent months following years of offstage troubles.

She also admitted that a joke made by Graham Norton during the 2016 BAFTA Awards about her onstage antics in a West End production of Funny Girl was what ‘tipped her over the edge’.

Reflecting on her woes, Sheridan admitted she had been ‘drunk and emotional’ in May when she told her 670,000 Twitter followers that fiancé Jamie Horn’s ‘nut job mum’ had killed one of her beloved dog.

In a candid interview with The Telegraph’s Stella magazine, the West End star explained: ‘I was supposed to be a celebrity but I couldn’t do it right. I drank pints and made rude jokes and was brilliant at saying the wrong thing.’

She added: ‘I was drunk, upset, emotional and angry and… Can you believe I, of all people, went and put it on Insta again.

‘How many times can I rant off on Insta and regret it and then do it again? I’m such a k***. 

The screen star quickly deleted the post and later clarified that her Pomeranian called Panny had been killed by another dog.

Sheridan, who has struggled with depression for years, met Jamie, 28, on mobile dating app Tinder 19 months ago, and now lives with him at her country home in Kent.
