Sheridan has been to the salon

Sheridan Smith made a striking style statement at the TV BAFTAs in London yesterday.

The actress turned heads on the red carpet by revealing a new bright purple hairstyle with super short sides.

Sheridan – who was rocking a warm auburn shade earlier this year – wore her freshly dyed and chopped locks in a punky quiff. 

But it wasn’t just her mane that commanded attention.

The 32-year-old Gavin & Stacey star showed off her hot toned figure in a tight-fitting white mid-length dress.

A pair of plain pointed nude courts completed her outfit.

Sheridan was joined at the event by celebrities including Millie Mackintosh, Professor Green and Rochelle Humes
