Smith: I've never been on a date

Sheridan Smith doesn't find the idea of nude scenes easy

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 alright 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 nob! 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."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Spending time on your own will be rewarding. You're an extremely conscientious person who is hyperaware of your surroundings. Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
