The actress notably pulled out of a series of scheduled TV interviews in the days following the photographs, cancelling planned appearances on The Graham Norton Show and The Today Show as well as an event for Hollywood Foreign Press Association where she had been due to promote her latest film Rebecca.

Dominic put on a united front with his wife of ten years, Catherine FitzGerald, telling the press: "I just want to say our marriage is strong and we are very much still together."

Dominic and Catherine share four children, and originally dated at university before rekindling their romance after Dominic split with girlfriend Polly Astor, with whom he shares a daughter. The couple wed in June 2010, in Catherine’s native Ireland.

Meanwhile, Lily was in an on-off relationship with The Crown actor, Matt Smith before officially splitting this year.
