Sheridan Smith left fans concerned she'd split from her boyfriend Alex Lawler when she deleted all traces of him from her Instagram profile last month.

But just weeks later, the 40 year old made her red carpet debut with Alex – who she first dated 20 years ago – confirming their romance is well and truly back on.

A source confirmed the pair are giving their relationship another go, but cast doubts on how long it could last due to the "fiery" romance.

The insider told OK!: "Sheridan and Alex did split and she removed all of the photos of them online as a knee-jerk reaction but she wants to give things another go.

"But only time can tell how long her and Alex will last as they are fiery," the source continued.

Sheridan and Alex made their first red carpet appearance together on 3 November at the gala performance of Pride & Prejudice.

Arriving at The Criterion Theatre, the Cilla star put on a loved-up display with Alex, also 40, as they wrapped their arms around each other and snuggled for the cameras.

Sheridan looked gorgeous in a black top with matching leather black trousers alongside a bright red oversized blazer and some black pointed heels.

The blonde beauty styled her mane back into a low bun, leaving several loose strands to frame her face.

Wearing a subtle amount of make up, including eyeliner and mascara, Sheridan kept the accessories to a minimum as she donned gold hoop earrings and a chain bracelet.

Her other half Alex looked equally happy as he posed alongside Sheridan wearing an all black outfit, including a blazer.

The actress confirmed last month that she was dating Alex after splitting from her ex fiancé Jamie Horn following three years together.

She wrote: "So pleased this fitty I dated back in the day (20 years ago) is back in my life!

"Life works in mysterious ways," she penned alongside a smiling face emoji and prince emoji. She then added: "miss you Mr " before ending the caption with a red heart emoji.
