SHERIDAN Smith made a triumphant comeback on Strictly Come Dancing tonight after revealing she has finally overcome her demons.
The actress/singer took to the stage for a sensational rendition of a number from her musical Funny Girl – and fans went wild over her impressive performance.
Sheridan, 35, has endured a tough time in recent months, but she has bounced back with her successful turn in the West End and now a crowd-pleasing turn on Strictly.
She looked better than ever in a gold dress with perfectly coiffed hair as she belted out show tune My Man on the results show tonight.
The stage star was given a HUGE round of applause as she finished her performance and fans flocked to Twitter to praise her vocals.
One wrote: “Loved Sheridan Smith on #Strictly, what an amazingly talented woman.”
Another added: “Wow, Sheridan Smith can sing!!! Bloody hell that was good #Strictlyresults #Strictly…”
A third added: “I know we all know it but I’m going to say it anyway – Sheridan Smith really is a one of a kind isn’t she? #Strictly.”
Her comeback TV performance comes just months after she was forced to pull out of the Funny Girl tour in June with mumps.

Last year she also took two months off from its West End run amid her dad Colin’s cancer diagnosis, having concerned theatre-goers who accused her of portraying Fanny Brice while drunk.
She is now back on her feet and better than ever after signing a record deal and making plans to release her debut album by the end of the year.
Sheridan recently admitted she’s feeling positive in motivation post on Facebook, writing: “The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed.”
After a fan replied: “Wish I could do this!” she added: “You can and u will, if I can then anything is possible.”
The Sun recently revealed that she jetted off for a fortnight’s recuperation at a luxury detox retreat in Turkey.
She is also said to be enjoying a new romance after striking up a relationship with model Graham Nation.
The Cilla star was recently spotted heading to Paris with Graham for a romantic weekend away.
