The BAFTA-winning actor plays the title character, whose long list of addictions is starting to have a terrible impact on her personal relationships, culminating in an embarrassing incident at her brother's "dry" wedding.

As a result, she makes the difficult decision to simply give up everything – from smoking to sex and alcohol to Adderall – on a mission to go "from Keith Richards to Lindsay Lohan", as she explains in the trailer.

The series boasts a starry cast, with Smith appearing alongside comedy greats Pauline McLynn (Shameless) and Ardal O'Hanlon (Father Ted) as her parents, while I May Destroy You's Lewis Reeves plays her younger brother, Joey.

Check out the trailer below:

Rosie Molloy Gives Up Everything was announced as part of Sky's winter slate earlier this year, in addition to Romesh Ranganathan and Katherine Ryan team-up Romantic Getaway, and Suranne Jones' festive offering Christmas Carole.

The six-part series looks rather chaotic and brimming with cheeky humour, but there is also scope for more dramatic scenes relating to the serious theme of addiction, with one character warning Rosie that she could be "very poorly".
