Sheridan Smith recalls being rushed to hospital following a seizure after Graham Norton made brutal joke about her being 'a drunk'

The actress, 42, who has had a rocky career as a star on stage and screen, told The Times that she stopped taking her anti-anxiety medication after Graham made a jibe  about her being 'a drunk'.

Nick Curtis: 'This dismally muddled, self-important, furtively misogynist musical about an actress going to pieces squanders the talents of everyone involved, even breaking’s Sheridan Smith's unique ability to connect with an audience.' Stefan Kariazis: 'Not even a charismatic, soul-baring Sheridan Smith can save Ivo van Hove's abominable, misjudged musical adaptation of John Cassavetes' iconic, challenging 1977 film.' 'And Van Hove doesn’t help with his rough-and-ready mise en scène, which sets the action in a rudimentary back-stage environment, lined with dressing room mirrors at the rear, into which Myrtle sadly stares.'
