Doncaster actress, Sheridan Smith, has been spotted sporting a very different look while filming a new television drama.

Fresh from her recent small screen success Cilla – in which Smith played Scouse star Cilla Black – the actress had an entirely different look during the filming in Leeds.

With close cropped hair and a plain blue blouse, Smith was all set to play grieving widow Jo Gillespie who, following the death of her undercover police officer husband, vows to discover who murdered him.

The drama, titled Black Work, is being filmed at locations across the city.

A spokesman for the show said: “Black Work is a compelling three-part story which sees police officer Jo confront difficult truths about her family life and her marriage to Ryan.”

The drama was written by Matt Charman and is being produced by Mammoth Screen.
