She’s nominated for the prestigious Leading Actress gong at Sunday night’s BAFTA TV Awards, which ended up being won by Doctor Foster star Suranne Jones.

But Sheridan Smith, 34, ensured she looked stunning in an intricate black lace dress with sheer sleeves and a hooped bottom as she arrived at the Royal Festival Hall for the prestigious ceremony.

The much-loved actress looked to have put recent stage troubles behind her as she smiled for the cameras while walking the red carpet.

She put on a fine sartorial display matching her stylish dress with a simple black clutch and teetering heels.

The C Word star posed expertly with her hand on her hip while flashing a sultry look at the cameras.

Her short and choppy blonde locks were coiffed in a modern style with a wavy quiff, and she sported a classy application of make-up complete with ultra-thick eyeliner.

The star’s red carpet appearance comes after the cancellation of one evening performance of her West End hit Funny Girl made headlines.
