He appeared as a dancer in Queen's music video for "I Want to Break Free" in 1984, performing in a pastiche of the ballet L'après-midi d'un faune. However, his ballet career ended at the age of 27 due to a broken toe and torn ligament. He had a prominent (non dancing) music video role several years later when he played the male lead in the video for Natalie Imbruglia's debut single "Torn" in 1997.
Since then, Sheffield has been in the BBC medical drama series Holby City where he played Alex Adams from 2000–03, as well as Lancelot in the 1998 television drama Merlin. He had a supporting role in the 2005 film The Wedding Date alongside Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney. Subsequently he made a cameo appearance in the final episode of Green Wing, playing a character that Sue White (played by Michelle Gomez) was dating.
In 2005 he appeared in the British and Irish Renault Clio advert "France vs. Britain" directed by Ridley Scott’s daughter Jordan Scott who also the directed the 2007 follow up spot "More Va Va Voom" again starring Sheffield as Ben and French actress Annelise Hesme as Sophie. He regularly features on the BBC's Holiday programme in which he has visited Mexico, Egypt, Sichuan, South Africa and Bermuda. In 2006 travelled to South Africa where eight celebrities competed to become rangers in a South African reserve, for the 2007 series of BBC2's Safari School. In the final, Sheffield came second to singing coach Carrie Grant.
In 2007, Sheffield made an appearance in New Tricks. 2008 was a busier year for him with a role in Hotel Babylon and movies Miss Conception, The Children and Last Chance Harvey.
In January 2010, he took part in ITV show Dancing on Ice alongside professional skater Susie Lipanova. He was the third person to be voted off (therefore finishing the contest in 12th place) after losing in the skate-off.
In October 2011, it was announced that Sheffield would be joining Coronation Street and would portray Danny Stratton. Sheffield's Coronation Street stay was only short as he was part of a storyline that saw Becky McDonald (Katherine Kelly) depart.
