Sheridan Smith is reportedly set to judge a reboot of TV classic, Stars In Their Eyes.
Starstruck, a twist on the classic format, will see participants become their music idols for a performance, with judges then scoring their performance.
Filming is said to begin in May, with a release for next Autumn.
‘Sheridan is the perfect fit for the show as one of the judges,’ a source told The Sun.
They added: ‘Everyone working on the show is really excited.
‘Casting has begun and Sheridan is itching to get started.’
Stars In Their Eyes was a family favourite that ran for 16 years, launching in 1990 until it was given the axe in 2006.
Hosted by Matthew Kelly, iconic stars were revived for the stage thanks to the make-up team and lookalike singers who then turned their appearances into a career.
Early reports of the series revival started in March this year, with Rylan Clark-Neal appealing for Jane McDonald to take on hosting duties.
Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for comment.
The career move is the latest in impressive steps for Sheridan, who welcomed her baby boy in May this year while in lockdown.
Since then she has filmed a documentary laying bare her mental health struggles, and the effects being a mum has had on her wellbeing.
Sheridan’s now planning a return to drama, starting with thriller No Return, which is set to air next year.
She’s also lending her voice to a series of documentaries, including a discussion on homeless children.
