Isle darling Sheridan Smith is back on the box for prime-time viewing tonight (Monday), starring in a romantic two-part drama.

The BBC TV drama from author David Nicholls takes place on the daily train commute in to London, involving Sally Thorn (Smith) and

Carl Matthews, played by David Morrissey.

Health Club manager Sally is having doubts about her forthcoming second marriage, then she meets Carl on the train and sparks start to fly.

Smith, 32, has said the cast, that includes Olivia Colman, is her ‘dream team’, and that she was thrilled to land the part in what promises to be a steamy love story.

The Epworth star who won the Best Actress Bafta for her role in Mrs Biggs is also tipped for the role of Eliza Doolittle alongside David Walliams in a new production of My Fair Lady in the West End.

Catch her tonight and tomorrow evening from 9pm on BBC1.
