Sheridan Smith says she's loving being in Liverpool. The actress says everyone has made her so welcome. She's been in everyone's front room and the crew are helping her with the scouse accent.
The drama tells the story of Cilla Black's rocky rise to fame and will capture the essence of 1960's Liverpool and the Merseybeat music scene.
Sheridan says she's recently had dinner with Cilla and she's given the drama her backing.
