After images were last week released from new BBC One drama The C Word, the first trailer of the show featuring Sheridan Smith in the lead role has been released.
Based on the real-life experiences of breast cancer sufferer Lisa Lynch, the show sees Smith star as the woman herself who passed away in 2013 at the age of 33 after assisting in casting of the actress.
Speaking of her muse, Smith said: "Her zest for life was infectious. I was moved and inspired by her courage and bravery. I couldn't help but love her. That's why I want to tell her story.
"I'm so sad that Lisa won't get to see the finished drama, having been so involved in the development of it. I'm honoured and humbled that she wanted me to play her on screen, and I hope that I will make her proud."
Lynch's book published before her death has been adapted for television by Nicole Taylor.
The C Word is to broadcast on BBC One later this year.
