Sheridan recently candidly revealed that she ‘lost the plot, her mind and had a massive meltdown’ when her beloved father Colin died in 2016 after a sudden cancer battle.

Speaking on her documentary, the former Gavin And Stacey star explained: ‘I kind of lost the plot after that and had a massive meltdown. I ran away.

‘There’s that kind of northern, “Keep calm and carry on” vibe – we’re all like that. I feel I’ve come out the other side now.

‘I want to say “It’s OK not to be OK” because I didn’t speak about it and then it snowballed and it came to this huge head.’

It was reported that the Cilla actress left their home in the country together and invited her pals to her other house in Crouch End, North London, after the ‘argument’.

A source reportedly told The Sun: ‘She was upset by the row with Jamie and wanted to vent to friends. She went to London but some of them insisted she had been in the wrong, which angered her even more and she chucked them out.

‘After that she turned to drink and, with the few pals who were left, got through a couple of bottles of vodka.

‘They were partying all night and didn’t go to sleep until 3pm on the Sunday.’

The source added that her ‘real friends’ are ‘concerned’ for her after the alleged 20-hour booze bender.
