Sheridan Smith has admitted she doesn't understand why people are so fascinated with her love life.

The award-winning actress told Jonathan Ross that she'd read every "lie" imaginable about who she was dating, pretty much none of it even close to the truth!

She said: "I've read so much stuff, I don't really know what the obsession is, I've read so many lies about me dating this person and that person, every gay friend of mine I've been out with has been my new 'mystery man'. The best one was, I stepped out for a dinner date with my 'mystery man' - it was my brother!"

On this week's episode of The Jonathan Ross Show, Jonathan is joined by screen icon, Dame Joan Collins, award winning actor, Danny DeVito and acting starlet, Sheridan Smith.

Sheridan, who recently split from Hollyoaks' Greg Wood, went on to say that being a busy actress she didn't get the chance to meet that many people.

"I know I'm always working, I'm a workaholic and I live on my own with my three dogs.. It sounds really sad and Bridget Jonesy doesn't it… but I just meet people on jobs… [The dogs] are my babies, I don't need a man with them!

"You always kind of just meet people along the way... If it's someone who also isn't in the business in that way, it might be strange for them I guess. I would totally date, I'm not like that but whether it would be weird for anyone else, I don't know."

During the interview, the actress also spoke about playing Cilla Black in the Cilla drama. "They went to her with the idea and thankfully she said yes, so there was no kind of audition process but she was wonderful," she said.

"She was wonderful to meet and I did a lot of research, asked her a lot of questions and she was always there. She said I could ring her any time but you can't ring Cilla Black! She was an icon to me... [After she watched it], she sent me a big bouquet of flowers and that was enough for me, from the lady herself! It was wonderful, a real honour."

The Jonathan Ross Show airs Saturday, 7 November at 10.10pm on ITV.
