But as news of the move spread, Alice appeared to suggest she had no idea he had taken action to begin the proceedings.

Sharing a news article about the impending divorce, Alice wrote on Instagram: “Oh, ok. Thanks for letting me know I guess.”

In January, 49-year-old Alice claimed the Liar star Ioan had “walked out” on her and their two daughters after saying he “no longer loves her”.

She broke the news to fans in a since deleted post on Twitter, explaining that her husband had given very few details about his decision.

She wrote: “Sad news. My beloved husband/soulmate of 20 years, Ioan Gruffudd, has announced he is to leave his family, starting next week.

“Me and our young daughters girls are very confused and sad. We haven’t been given a reason except that he ‘no longer loves me.’ I’m so sorry.”

The couple have been married since 2007 and have two daughters, Ella, 11, and Elsie, seven.

It’s unknown whether the pair, who have two children together, had signed a pre-nuptial agreement.

Alice, who met Ioan on the set of 2000 film 102 Dalmatians, accused him of “gaslighting” and “mentally torturing” her, adding she was “very confused and sad” in an emotional statement.

Ioan later said: “Look, as I said before, it’s an extremely difficult time for the family.

“Our thoughts are with our children obviously right now and I’d really respect a little bit of privacy right now, thank you.”

Ioan played widower and serial rapist Andrew Earlham opposite Joanne Froggatt in hit ITV drama Liar.

Just last month Alice insisted she had remained friends with Ioan – star of ITV drama Liar – for the sake of their children.
