Sheridan Smith has admitted that she has never been on a date.
The Mrs Biggs actress – who previously had a relationship with her Gavin And Stacey co-star James Corden – told The Sun that nobody ever asks her out, although she insisted she is perfectly happy being single right now.
She said: “I’ve just filmed a drama called Dates, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually been on one!
“I haven’t really been swept off my feet. I haven’t been asked out, or maybe I would go. Then again, the idea of sitting opposite someone and making chit-chat – that makes me cringe!”
She added: “Everyone is obsessed with linking me up, but I’m all right at the moment!”
Sheridan also opened up to the newspaper about stripping off for roles.
She said: “I saw Nicole Kidman in The Blue Room at the Donmar when she got her kit off and I thought ‘God, that’s so brave!’ As an actor you shouldn’t be body-conscious, but I am. If I get in shape and a part requires it, maybe I will. I find all those bedroom scenes hard, though. It’s so embarrassing – especially if it’s someone I fancy.
“I did one for Dates and had modesty covers and nipple patches, but you feel such a knob! I’m so shy. I’ve never done full nude.”
But it seems the actress will have to shed those fears for an upcoming part.
Sheridan said: “I’ve got a job coming up where I have to be a bit less dressed and I’m thinking, ‘God, I’ll have to go to boot camp’. But it’s with somebody nice, so that puts me at ease.”
