Sheridan sparked speculation she’d reunited with Alex at the start of September – two decades after they last dated – after sharing a picture of them both together.

She’d written at the time: ‘So pleased this fitty I dated back in the day (20 years ago) is back in my life! Life works in mysterious ways…miss u Mr L.’ 

Earlier this month, Sheridan then sparked engagement speculation as she shared a picture of herself cosying up to Alex. 

Sheridan rested her hand on her partner’s cheek, with a large diamond ring on full display, and captioned the image, ‘Life begins at 40. 4040,’ along with a heart emoji.

‘Hope you having a good time as I think you’re a talented woman who comes across as a lovely woman. So good luck to you.’ 

Sheridan confirmed her split from long-term partner Jamie little more than a year after they welcomed their son Billy together, the couple’s only child.
