Sheridan Smith is reportedly ‘devastated’ by her split from fiancé Jamie Horn.
The actress, 40, recently revealed that she parted ways from her husband-to-be Jamie, 31, ‘with great sadness’, just over a year after they welcomed their first child Billy together.
A source told OK! magazine: ‘Sheridan is struggling to get through the split. She put him out there for everyone to see and she really thought he was The One.’

It was also claimed the split from back the pain Sheridan felt after losing her father Colin who passed away in 2016 following a battle with cancer.
They said: ‘She had the public falling out with his mother and they got through all of that, but sadly it hasn’t worked out. She’s devastated. This has brought back all the feelings of missing her dad because he was her tower of strength.
‘In her heart she’s hoping they can make it right, but it doesn’t look like there’s any way back. They have a baby together and it’s tough. She’s heartbroken.’
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Sheridan for comment.

Sheridan announced that with ‘great sadness’ she has split from Jamie after three years together.
The star and former insurance broker Jamie welcomed their first child, a son Billy, last May.
The couple met on the dating app Tinder in 2018 and reportedly got engaged just three months later.
The couple told The Sun: ‘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 pair appeared in a one-off ITV documentary last year called Sheridan Smith: Becoming Mum which followed her pregnancy.
Jamie reportedly proposed to Sheridan in May 2018 with a £10,000 ring, and the couple have been residing in a rented property in North London together since.

The couple were first spotted together in March 2018, and Sheridan revealed she had a new man in her life during her country-wide tour soon after.
Crooning out Rufus Wainwright’s Dinner at Eight on stage in Cardiff, she told the crowds: ‘Right that song — that was my fella’s favourite. Oh, did I not tell you? I’ve got a fella.
‘Don’t act so f***ing surprised, thank you. I know, you think it won’t last — it probably won’t. Anyway, that was his favourite song.’
The couple then reportedly got engaged in May 2018, with a source telling The Sun at the time that she was ‘head over heels in love.’
The insider said: ‘Jamie is very serious about her. He has introduced Sheridan to his mum already.
‘She doesn’t wear the ring on her finger, she’s got a necklace. She wears it there because she doesn’t want people to see that she’s got a ring.’

MailOnline contacted a representative for Sheridan for comment at the time.
The source continued: ‘Sheridan wants to be with him whenever possible, including at work. They’ve even bought a dog together, which shows how serious she is about marrying him.’
The couple were first seen together leaving London restaurant The Ivy Club on March 23.
Sheridan was last linked to model Graham Nation in August 2019, but remained single after splitting with tattooed hunk only three months later.
A source told The Sun at the time: ‘She really fell for Graham… so when they decided to end things recently, it hit her very hard.
There is no animosity and Graham is still there for her, but she feels quite lonely at the moment.’

Yet, the blonde appeared to hit back at split claims just one day after they emerged, by sharing a playful selfie of the pair to Instagram.
She wrote defiantly in the caption: ‘4 days till I see my man @grahamnation can’t f**king wait!’
In an interview with Vogue in March 2016, Sheridan lamented her failed pursuit at finding love, admitting she doesn’t pick men well.
Speaking to Emily Sheffield for the monthly glossy about her chequered romantic experiences with men, the blonde starlet is quoted: ‘What can I say? I don’t pick them very well.’
That confession came weeks after her split from Hollyoaks bad boy Greg Wood.
Greg and Sheridan met via social networking website Twitter in November 2014, but many considered it problematic from the start.

Not least because, at the time, 36-year-old Greg was with his wife of 10 years Catherine Milburn.
The actress, who was appointed an OBE in the 2015 New Year Honours, previously dated The Late Late Show host James Corden, 42.
James first met Sheridan on the set of Fat Friends in 2002 but it wasn’t until November 2007 that he confirmed they were an item.
They split the following spring and James briefly dated Lily Allen soon after the breakup from Sheridan, who he also starred in Gavin and Stacey with.
Sheridan pulled out of West End production Funny Girl in 2016, following the devastating death of her father Colin from cancer, but returned to screens on Christmas Eve in the TV adaptation of David Walliams’ book Ratburger.
Speaking on the Jonathan Ross show of the tough time, she recalled: ‘I hate it and I always think ‘The show must go on’ and I hate letting anyone down but I think the public understood in a way that you can’t choose when these things happen.

‘It was a gradual build up when my dad got diagnosed and I just couldn’t continue, I lost my mind, I completely did to the point where people were stopping me in the street and cuddling me because people understand that, it’s just life.’
It comes after Sheridan recently revealed that her and Jamie were ‘in a daze’ following the birth of their boy last year as they struggled with a lack of sleep.
The actress also told how a shortage of outside help due to the restrictions of the pandemic made things slightly harder as new parents, as she joked that the pair were ‘walking around like zombies.’
Speaking to the i newspaper about parenthood, she said: ‘It’s surreal. You’re kind of walking around in a bit of a daze. If it hadn’t been a pandemic we would have had more people to rely on so we could both go and get some rest; but thank goodness we had each other.’
She went on to saw that her insurance broker beau Jamie, 31, ‘took a lot of time’ to care for their little one too, meaning she got to sleep in between breastfeeding.
But she noted that despite their teamwork, they were still extremely tired, stating: ‘We were walking around like zombies and we didn’t really know what day it was. When there’s this bundle of joy, though, the good times make up for the bad.’
She added that at the time, it was just the three of them together and they didn’t have others to ‘rely on’, so they simply ‘got on with it’.
The Two Pints Of Lager favourite, who has recently started filming for The Railway Children remake, also told how partner Jamie had taken over night duties so that she can head back to work.
Sheridan said: ‘I’ve been working, so Billy’s dad does the nights at the minute. When I was gradually going back to work I was finding that not sleeping and then heading into work was hard.’
The star added that she’s been ‘lucky’ and has been attempting to get a ‘good night’s sleep’ while caring for her 13-month-old boy.
