The 39-year-old actress has teamed up with NOW, The Sleep Charity and 'sleep story' writer Claire Storrow on a number of tales to help people across the UK drift off with an escape from stress.

Sheridan said: “I know it’s been a tough year, and the last thing we need is a bad night’s sleep.

"I can’t wait to be the voice that soothes you to dreamland – I’m truly honoured to join you all in your bedrooms. I hope you enjoy these enigmatic stories.”

And Jamie Schwartz, Director of Brand at NOW added: “We all need a bit of escapism, and TV, films and sports are the perfect tonic.

"NOW is the streaming home of world class entertainment, and we’re delighted that our brilliant shows can be adapted so creatively to help Brits relax in a hectic world.”

The stories are scientifically engineered to ensure the perfect night’s slumber, and at 15 minutes in length they're seen as a good fit to help people drift off to sleep.

The first - 'A Walk Beyond The Wall' - takes inspiration from 'Game of Thrones' as viewers are transported "from the lush green landscapes of Northern Ireland right through to the natural glacial beauty of Iceland".

'Discover the Magic of Oxford' is inspired by 'A Discovery of Witches', while 'Return to Home Turf' takes its lead from Premier League football.

Meanwhile, 'Daydreaming in the Cote d'Azur' channels 'Riviera', and 'Into The Secret Garden' is based on beloved story 'The Secret Garden'.
