SHERIDAN Smith broke up with boyfriend Alex Lawler after 4 months of dating.
Friends said 40 year old actress – star of the BBC drama Four Lives – ended the romance.
Sheridan has since deleted her social media account of photos of Alex, an actor she first dated more than two decades ago.
A source said: ‘Sheridan and Alex’s relationship ended a few weeks ago.
“There is no big drama and both agree that their romance is on the right track.
“Sheridan is so happy to rekindle the old flame with Alex and it has been a great reunion for both of them.
“But after a while, it became clear that they would get better as friends. Now she is single and focused on herself and her son.”
Sheridan revealed she was dating Alex again last September.
She announced the news to fans in a social media message, saying: “So glad that the suit I dated 20 years ago is back in my life. Life works in mysterious ways. . . miss you Mr L.”
Alex appeared in the 2001 Mike Bassett film: England Manager and the soccer TV series Sky Dream Team, as well as small roles in EastEnders and Blue Murder.
Sheridan was previously with Jamie Horn, 31 years old, father of their 20-month-old son Billy.
The couple broke up last July after 3 years of dating.
Sheridan’s split from Alex comes eight weeks after the crash of her car in Little Sampford, Essex.
The Sun has revealed how the Bafta-winning star’s £100,000 Range Rover crashed into a tree after she made a turn in bad weather.
She and Alex suffered minor injuries in the collision, but police later confirmed that no other drivers were involved and no crime was committed.
