Bad times in the past for Sheridan.

Byline: CRAIG SIMPSON

SHERIDAN Smith has said she is finally back after battling anxiety and grief over the loss of her dad almost three years ago.

The award-winning actress and singer has urged others to seek professional help for emotional stress.

Smith left the limelight during her father's illness, after her own mental health problems began affecting her work on stage.

She had to pull out of a West End show and has struggled to find peace since.

Smith said: "My anxiety levels started getting a lot higher; it was that fear of failing, I guess. And dad dying.

"It took a couple of years to get right, and to get over the social phobias. I think I'm finally back."
