Sheridan Smith met some football legends on Saturday as she took in Everton’s 0-0 draw with Arsenal from VIP seats at Goodison Park.
The actress, 38, who is expecting her first child, joked she didn’t know who any of the legends were as she posed with Everton’s caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson for an Instagram snap.
Sheridan’s fans pointed out that her fiancé Jamie Horn might not be too pleased to see her with the Everton favourite, as he’s a Arsenal fan.

‘Fab day at the footy yesterday, met lots of football people that my fella says are quite important….@MrAncelotti , @mikelarteta, Pat Rice, and this lovely tall man called Duncan Ferguson,’ Sheridan captioned the photo, which saw 6ft 3in player turned manager tower over 5ft 1in Sheridan.
‘There’s a better team over the park you might have heard of them just ask your fella,’ quipped one fan in the comments referring to her beau’s support for Everton’s rivals.
Sheridan was a guest of her friend, Everton’s chairman Bill Kenwright, who directed and produced the recent West End production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat in which Sheridan starred.
Sheridan also met Everton’s newly appointed manager Carlo Ancelotti at the match and Arsenal’s new manager Mikel Arteta, which she promptly tweeted Piers Morgan about.
