Amy Nuttall has shared a defiant message with her fans following the news that her husband Andrew Buchan has begun a new romance with his Better co-star, Leila Farzad.

The Emmerdale actress, 40, and the Broadchurch actor, 44, got married in 2012 and went on to welcome one son and a daughter together, but Andrew reportedly left the family home and moved in with Leila at the end of 2022. See their on-screen chemistry in the video below...

On her Twitter page, the Downton Abbey star ditched the regular cover image for a message that reads: "You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have." It's not known when she chose the picture, but it appears to refer to the breakdown of her marriage.

This is not the first time she has shared a cryptic post – Amy also shared an Instagram quote which read: "I am not impressed by money, social status or job titles. I'm impressed by the way someone treats other human beings."

The MailOnline reported that Amy said: "I can't talk about it. I'm sorry, I can't say anything." While she has remained largely silent about her split, Amy hinted that their marriage has come to an end by removing her wedding ring.

She previously sported a solitaire diamond engagement ring next to her gold wedding band, but both were nowhere to be seen when she was pictured in a casual navy puffer jacket in Buckinghamshire on Tuesday.

Andrew and Leila reportedly met while filming BBC show Better which aired earlier this year, and fans have since commented on the pair's obvious on-screen chemistry.
