Sheridan Smith has quit as a judge on ITV talent show Starstruck after just one series due to ‘schedule conflicts’.

The actress, 41, formed the Saturday night show’s jury alongside Beverley Knight, Adam Lambert and Jason Manford.

But ITV has confirmed Sheridan has left the show after the first season due to ‘schedule conflicts’ with a ‘new acting project’.

An ITV spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘We would have liked to see Sheridan return to the show but sadly she has had to decline due to scheduling conflicts with a new acting project.

“The team loved working with her, she was a fantastic judge and gave valuable feedback to the participants. We wish her all the best.’

Starstruck sees people transform their idols as they compete in teams – with lookalike and soundalikes much like Stars In Their Eyes which aired on the channel from 1990 to 2006.
