Gushing about Alex, Sheridan wrote: ‘So pleased this fitty I dated back in the day (20 years ago) is back in my life! Life works in mysterious ways. Miss u Mr L [sic]’

The declaration of love was accompanied by a short video of the couple smiling and a second close-up photo of Alex.

In a joint statement released in July, they said: ‘It is with great sadness that we have decided to have some time apart.

‘We both remain completely committed to raising our beautiful boy Billy together.

‘We ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time. Thank you.’

The Bafta winner began dating Jamie in early 2018 and got engaged after a few months.

They share a son, Billy, who was born in May last year.
