Lily James 'called Dominic West's wife on Monday night to insist pictures of them were innocent' claims new report


LILY James called Dominic West's wife Catherine on Monday night to insist the pictures of them kissing were innocent, a new report has claimed.

Images published during the day showed 31-year-old Lily enjoying a Rome getaway with her married co-star, 50 – with snaps including the two sharing a smooch, Dominic grabbing Lily's bottom, and the pair enjoying an intimate ride on an electric scooter together.

At the time, it was reported that Catherine had been left "devastated and heartbroken" – with it confirmed that she and Dominic were still together having married in 2010.

Yesterday, the couple put on a loved-up display outside of their family home where they insisted that they had a "strong marriage", with Catherine even kissing her husband before giving out a handwritten note that asserted they were still happy together.

MailOnline have now quoted sources close to the pair, as well as speculation that Lily could have called Catherine on Monday night to innocently explain away the incriminating photos.

It has also been claimed that Angharad Wood's presence in some of the photos, who is both Lily and Dominic's agent, offered reassurance to his wife.

A source told the publication: "The fact that Angharad was there will have been very reassuring to Catherine as the two women are good friends.

"Angharad would not have stood for anything going on and he would certainly not be so stupid as to do anything in front of her. Dom has a bit of history with women from some time ago, but he’s much too clever to get caught out this way."

Despite Dominic and Catherine's united front, it has been reported that she is "privately fuming" with her husband – but plans to battle it behind closed doors for the sake of her family.

The pair are mum and dad to 13-year-old Dora, 12-year-old Senan, 11-year-old Francis, and seven-year-old Christabel.

Dominic also has an older daughter from a previous relationship.

A body language expert dubbed the pair's kiss outside of their Wiltshire cottage yesterday a "toe-curling display of denial" with Dominic "arrogant but awkward", and it was also mocked online.

Lily has not left her North London home since the photos were published on Monday, but was seen looking modest in a video interview as she promoted her new Netflix film.

The Sun revealed earlier this month that Lily had split from The Crown actor Matt Smith for good after they attempted to rekindle their romance in lockdown following their break-up last year after a five-year relationship.

She and Dominic are currently working together on an adaptation of Nancy Mitford's novel The Pursuit Of Love for BBC One and Amazon, with filming confirmed to have started earlier this year.

The pair were spotted as they spent two nights in a suite at the top of swanky Hotel De La Ville in Rome.

In the pictures, Dominic is seen stroking Lily's hair as they get lunch together and smiling at the beauty before leaning in for a kiss.

Dominic first rose to prominence in US hit series The Wire in 2002 before playing a love cheat in The Affair between 2014 and 2019.

The steamy Sky Atlantic series saw the British actor take on the role of Noah, who cheats on his wife – and the mother of his four children – with a waitress that he meets in a diner.

The Sun Online have contacted Dominic and Lily's reps for comment.
