English actress and singer, Sheridan Smith was ‘lucky to have survived an accident she got with her Range Rover during Storm Arwen last week.

The popular actress was involved in a ghastly accident during which she lost control of her Range Rover and drove into a tree after slipping on the ice.

The 40-year-old singer was already near her home when she got the accident while driving with her boyfriend Alex Lawler.

According to Sun’s reports, she made it out with cuts and bruises all over her body.

It was gathered that the ghastly car accident occurred before an episode of The Jonathan Ross Show on ITV where Sheridan appeared.

One of the house owners of her neighbourhood said: “Sheridan is so lucky to be alive. It could have been so much worse. Her car was stuck in the tree, it was a really bad crash.

“It could have been so much worse, she had cuts and bruises, but it could have been fatal, she was incredibly lucky. It was a brand new Range Rover, she hasn’t had it long. It’s almost a miracle she’s not hurt herself more.

“It’s an incredibly tight bend to take at the best of times, never mind in a freezing storm like Arwen. For the car to be actually stuck in the tree it must have been travelling with some force.

“But thank goodness there were land-owners to cut up the tree blocking the road or police would never have got through. It doesn’t bear thinking about what might have happened.”

Essex Police confirmed that they spoke to Sheridan and Alex, and there were no other drivers involved and that no crimes were committed.

The popular actress said that when they were at the Jonathan Ross show backroom coordinator said that they were sexist.

A spokesperson for Jonathan Ross told the publication: “Sheridan seemed to have a great time on the show but appeared to become upset afterwards.

“Jonathan asked her if she was okay and she said, ‘Don’t worry, it’s not you.

However it was reported that Sheridan was ‘absolutely fuming’ saying the atmosphere was ‘chauvinistic’.

According to a source to Sun: “Sheridan was absolutely furious when filming on Jonathan Ross .

“According to the popular actress she claimed the atmosphere was chauvinistic and there was an air of misogyny. She also claimed that she felt she had not been treated with kindness.”
