Alice Evans insists she has 'no regrets' in sharing her mental anguish

‘It’s every woman’s nightmare’: Tearful Alice Evans says she considered harming herself after husband Ioan Gruffudd revealed he no longer loved her before filing for divorce

Alice Evans says she considered harming herself after husband Ioan Gruffudd abruptly ended their 14-year marriage, and admits she has a ‘very long and messy divorce’ ahead of her. 

Evans, 53, confirmed her separation from the Welsh star in a series of furious tweets posted on Twitter in January, and has since documented every toxic turn in their subsequent divorce proceedings across social media. 

But she insists she has no regrets in her willingness to share personal details regarding the nature of her relationship with Gruffudd, including their sex life, as she comes to terms with the collapse of their marriage.  

Devastated: Alice Evans says she considered harming herself after husband Ioan Gruffudd abruptly ended their 14-year marriage

Appearing remotely on Thursday’s edition of Lorraine, the actress admitted she feared the worst when he returned to the family home in Los Angeles after filming his new show Harrow in Australia. 

She said:  ‘He came back, hugged the kids, he very dryly gave me a kiss on the cheek and that was when I knew something was wrong. 

‘He told me within the first few days I don’t love you anymore. I’m not questioning his right to do that, but it was just so out of the blue. Over four months he said I don’t love you anymore, I might leave you or I might not leave you.’

She added: ‘I’d been on my own for the pandemic. I’ve looked after them for the past 10 years when he’s mostly filmed outside Los Angeles. He wouldn’t talk to me, look at me, went to sleep in the same room. I thought I might do myself harm. 

‘I spoke to my friends and they said this is not like him. At one point I said I’m going to lose my mind… I tweeted he’s leaving us, and then all hell broke loose.’ 

Evans has divided followers since going public with the split, but she insists she has no regrets in her willingness to share personal details regarding the nature of her relationship with Gruffudd, including their sex life, as she comes to terms with the collapse of their marriage.

She said: ‘His reaction wasn’t good, initially. Nobody had done this before. The reaction was 50/50. A lot of people were angry with me and almost didn’t believe me. It’s a strange thing to make up. A lot of people were shocked and there was so much talk of a dignified silence. 

‘How can you talk about a dignified silence wen I’m talking about my entire life falling to pieces around me? I did stop tweeting because I was told legally not to. As people understood what had happened, support is now like 80-90 to 10, in favour of me speaking out and understand why I’m doing it.’
