The celebration comes after Sheridan wrapped up filming on the set of her first acting role since becoming a mother last week.
She is set to star in a new Channel 5 psychological thriller TV series that follows the story of a teacher accused of a drunken sexual encounter with one of her pupils.
Sheridan will take on the lead role of Jenna in the TV show titled Teacher and star alongside It’s a Sin star David Fleeshman.
Channel 5 released a synopsis of the upcoming show, writing: ‘With no memory of the night in question, Jenna’s only hope of redemption lies in uncovering the truth about a dark event in her past that returns to haunt her.’
The four-part series, that includes Strictly Come Dancing star Kelvin Fletcher as well as My Mad Fat Diary’s Sharon Rooney, is expected to broadcast later in 2021.

Sheridan recently spoke to the Mail On Sunday’s YOU Magazine, where she opened up about motherhood.
Having been known for erratic behaviour, anxiety and self-doubt, the Two Pints of Lager actress admitted: ‘I don’t think I’ve ever felt like this before.
‘Regardless of anything going on in my career I’ve always felt insecure, worried about what people thought of me. And now I feel happy. That is a novelty.
‘I never knew I would be this person – a mum. Things used to seem so complicated, and now suddenly everything is so simple. I love Billy so much. I hold him and he’s looking at me and I know he loves me back and he needs me.
‘I’ve been looking for this all my life. I’ve looked in the wrong places – in nightclubs, going out drinking, pushing myself with work. Now in this little baby I’ve found that I’m at peace with everything.’
