Is Mushroom Sheridan Smith?

Davina and Jonathan have both guessed that Mushroom could be Sheridan Smith.

Sheridan has played in many acting roles during her career including Fanny Brice in Funny Girl, Ruth 'Rudi' Smith in Gavin and Stacey, and Janet Keogh in Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.
