Sheree Murphy (born 22 August 1975) is an English actress and television presenter. A former student of the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, Murphy placed second on the fifth series of the Reality TV show I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!. She is best known for her role as Tricia in Emmerdale.
Early life 
Born in Islington, North London, Murphy was the middle child and only girl in a family of five children. The family lived in a council house in Stoke Newington, and Sheree was educated from aged 9 at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts. She then attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School.
Her first part was in the musical The Rink at the Cambridge Theatre, aged 12. She didn't work professionally again until Emmerdale, working her way though school from aged 14 as a hairdressers assistant. She also worked front of house in various North London theatres.
Murphy may be best known as Tricia Dingle on Emmerdale, a role she played from 1998 to 2004. It was announced in late 2003 that Sheree would leave Emmerdale in December 2003, so that she could spend more time with her family and two young children, and her character was duly killed off.
In November and December 2005 she appeared on the ITV Reality show I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, finishing second to Carol Thatcher. She was noted for being "scared of everything", and for her sweet persona; as well as embarrassing her husband Harry Kewell with comments such as "he's got a peachy bum". Murphy presented the ITV spin-off series for series 6 with Phillip Schofield. In November 2007, she presented This Morning's coverage of the seventh series every weekday morning.
In both 2005 and 2006 Murphy presented ITV2's coverage of The British Soap Awards. Murphy hosted Footballers' Cribs for MTV UK and VH1 UK, and was a regular on ITV's lunchtime show Loose Women (2006–2007), returning in 2012 for a single episode, to celebrate 40 years of Emmerdale.
Personal life 
She is married to Australian footballer Harry Kewell. They met at the Majestyk club, a nightclub, in 2000 and were married on 25 May 2002 in Las Vegas. She met him while he was playing for Leeds United, but he transferred to Liverpool soon afterwards.
They have four children together: son, Taylor (born 2001); and daughters, Ruby Heather Toni (born 2003), Matilda (born on 19 March 2008), and Dolly (born January 14, 2012). The family currently live in Brighton, Victoria while Harry plays for Australian football team Melbourne Victory. Their previous residence was in Hale, Greater Manchester, with their house once being featured on Cribs on MTV.
