The blonde beauty admitted that she wanted to be "the best mum in the world" after opening up about her struggles with her mental health, which she is fronting a documentary exploring the issue of.

The 39 year old told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: "I think when you've had mental health issues in the past you're worried they're going to appear again in pregnancy.

"I didn’t know what was out there and you always feel quite ashamed to say it, especially when you’re pregnant.

"You feel like a bad mum. How can you be having these thoughts? And so we went on this journey and met the most amazing people."

Sheridan gave birth to her son Billy, with fiancé Jamie Horn, in May this year and she attributes her partner to getting her back on track after her own issues.

The pair met in 2018 and she explained: "Jamie had never experienced it before and he was reading about it… he keeps me calm."

Sheridan admitted to Phil and Holly: "I never saw myself having a child until Jamie."

When asked how son Billy was doing, she said: "I'm biased but he's gorgeous… that unconditional love.

"This little boy is what makes me want to be the best mum in the world."

The stunning actress, who has been snapped out and about with Jamie since giving birth, has also said: “It’s the best feeling in the world!

"I mean, I’ve left it later in life but I think it’s probably the right thing. I wasn’t ready before I met Jamie and now I’ve got this little family and I just feel – I can’t explain it – like a contentment, a calm.

“Maybe I was looking for something in the wrong places and now I feel like I’ve found it in this little boy.”
