She's got an impressive television CV and has received rave reviews for her theatre roles too.

Now Sheridan Smith's latest venture - her rendition of a number of classic songs on her debut album - adds another impressive notch to her many talents.

The album starts off with a haunting version of the Gnarls Barkley hit Crazy which is filled with smoky, jazzy undertones.

She definitely shows off her versatility as a singer by tackling the much-loved Dionne Warwick/Cilla Black hit Anyone Who Had A Heart.

For fans of hit film La La Land there's also a cover of City Of Stars.

Probably one of the most impressive songs is her version of Jennifer Hudson's Dreamgirls song And I Am Telling You. It's a huge ballad that she makes her own quite easily and gently.
