Back in 2021, Alice took to X, which was then known as Twitter to write: "So it turns out that my husband, after two years of telling me I'm a bad person and I'm not exciting and he no longer wants to have sex with me and he just wants to be on set abroad… has been in a relationship for three years behind all our backs. Good luck, Bianca."

In a piece written for MailOnline, Alice opened up further about her husband's alleged infidelity, writing: "Apparently the aspiring actress Bianca Wallace had worked on Ioan's Australian show, Harrow, as an extra. For at least the last two seasons," she wrote.

"My mouth went dry and I felt like I was going to throw up as I suddenly realised where she was: the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, where my husband was staying for his six-month French shoot."

Alice continued: "Then I got that feeling. The feeling nobody in a relationship — even one that's seen better days —wants to feel: My God. They are a couple. He has a girlfriend! But, he's my husband…"

The former couple's divorce was confirmed earlier in 2021 when Alice announced that Ioan had "walked out" on her after saying he "no longer loves her". She shared: "Sad news. My beloved husband/soulmate of 20 years, Ioan Gruffudd, has announced he is leaving his family, starting next week. Me and our young daughters are very confused and sad. We haven't been given a reason except that he 'no longer loves me'. I'm so sorry."
