Sheridan shared a sweet video of the pair together on her Instagram page alongside a photo of Alex on her Instagram page to confirm her new romance.

In the caption, the blonde beauty couldn’t help but gush over reigniting things with her former flame.

She wrote: “So pleased this fitty I dated back in the day (20 years ago) is back in my life!

“Life works in mysterious ways" she penned alongside a smiling face emoji and prince emoji. She then added: "miss you Mr L" before ending the caption with a red heart emoji.

Sheridan has clearly got the seal of approval from friends and fans, including actor Craig Kelly, who wrote: "He’s a top bloke. Lovely guy.x"

While actress Tillie Amartey added: "Your blessed as your heart is golden [yellow heart emoji] Luv ya xxx".

And a fan added: "The deepest of connections always last the longest of life’s journeys. So pleased you’re back in a good place".

Sheridan's happy news comes two months after her she announced her split from her fiancé Jamie Horn, whom she shares son Billy with.

The couple announced the news in a joint statement in July, which read: "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."

Sheridan met former insurance broker Jamie, 31, on dating app Tinder in 2018.

The actress even teased fans about her "secret boyfriend" during her Royal Albert Hall performance in April 2018.

The couple soon became engaged when Jamie proposed to the actress with a £10,000 ring. Sheridan and Jamie then revealed they were expecting a child together in October 2019, before welcoming baby son Billy into the world in May 2020. The pair then parted ways in August 2021.

Sheridan sparked romance rumours with Alex in August as she gushed over their "friendship" in a cosy post on her Instagram page.
