Here's how you can watch The Teacher online from anywhere in the world.

The Teacher is a new Channel 5 drama that casts Sheridan Smith taking the titular role as Jenna Garvey, a popular English teacher in her late 30s who teaches at Earlbridge state school.

Her life is turned upside down when Jenna is accused of having a drunken fling with a 15-year-old student, Kyle Hope (Samuel Bottomley) who had gone on a night out to celebrate a promotion. Jenna doesn't have any memory of the night in question, so her only choice is to try and uncover the truth of what happened.

Talking about her character, Sheridan Smith said: "She’s a bit naive. She tries to be a mate to her students, which is her undoing in the end. There are teacher-student boundaries, and she has maybe let that slip. I really hope people don’t know what to think about her — there were scenes where I was thinking ‘this is terrible, you’d be fired immediately’. Her actions didn’t sit right with me, but I enjoyed playing them!"
