Let’s be honest, it’s been a year of pretty grim news and, even worse, not nearly enough proper celebrity scandal (being locked in their mansions for most of the year kept even the naughtiest types relatively scot-free). But last week, one selfless soul by the name of Dominic West decided that enough was enough, and took it upon himself to serve up to the nation the most enthralling showbiz story we’ve seen since Coleen Rooney tweeted, “It’s…Rebekah Vardy’s account.”

And the funny thing is, we’re pretty sure we’ve seen him playing the same role before...

It all started early last week, when the 51 year old was pictured looking distinctly overly friendly with national treasure Lily James, 31, as they zipped around Rome together, scooched up close on an electric scooter.

New photos have emerged of Lily James and The Affair star Dominic West together, one day after they were photographed engaging in PDA while out to lunch in Rome, Italy. Lily was seen hugging and leaning on Dominic at one point and it appeared as if they arrived in the same taxi together.

Pictures of the pair – who filmed a BBC adaptation of Nancy Mitford’s novel The Pursuit of Love back in the summer – cosying up over an al afresco lunch in the sun, as Dominic nuzzled Lily’s neck, thundered their way across the ocean to the UK where jaws dropped all over the locked-up land. Especially because Dominic has a wife of 10 years, Catherine FitzGerald. The added fact that he played philandering husband Noah Solloway in US drama series The Affair, of all things, only added to the gossip and talk of scandal.

As far as we could see, all that cuddling, nuzzling and the obvious absence of Dominic’s wedding ring – coupled with the recent news that Lily had finally ended her on/off five-year relationship with actor Matt Smith – made us even more sure that what we were looking at was, indeed, a hot new celeb romance. That Dominic plays Lily’s father in their upcoming BBC series is perhaps a little suprising...but who are we to judge?

Since the pictures of Dominic and Lily in Rome came to light, he has put on a defiant display with his wife Catherine Fitzgerald, 49. Just hours after she told friends she was 'heartbroken' over the images, which went viral, she agreed to take part in a bizarre show of unity with The Affair star

But reader, don’t go thinking this is where our story ends… because, as all drama fans know, you've got to expect a few twists and turns. Forty-eight hours after his apparent Roman romance hit the headlines, Dominic returned back to the Wiltshire home he shares with wife Catherine and their four children.

Newspaper sources had reported that Catherine was “fuming” at the pictures of Dominic and Lily and intended to have some “difficult conversations” with her errant husband. Then, in a surprising move, at 10.30AM on 13 October , Dominic and Catherine emerged from their house to face photographers arm in arm, smiling wildly for the cameras, before Catherine handed out a handwritten note. “Our marriage is still strong and we’re very much still together,” they informed the world. “Thank you, Catherine and Dominic.”

Then, as a curtain call, they kissed for the cameras in a forced smooch that won’t be winning them an Emmy anytime soon. Catherine kept her hands in her pocket, Dominic smiled in a way that, some suggested, seemed less tender, more defiant.

Dominic expressed his admiration of the #MeToo movement, as he said there is now 'a positive discrimination in favour of female directors'. And Dominic West has revealed on Thursday that he and his co-star Ruth Wilson would argue on set of the Showtime hit about who would go 'on top'.

Dominic West and Lily James 'put on a very cosy display kissing and cuddling on their busy flight to Rome before enjoying a romantic weekend away'. Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey step out in celebration as they party with Chance The Rapper after performance on Saturday Night Live.

And the couple then retreated back inside – and have since, apparently, fled to Catherine’s family estate, Glin Castle in Ireland to lay low.

It's all very odd - in The Affair Noah also has four kids, he also has an affair with a much-younger woman (though of course Dominic's is only an alleged one), also has a wealthy wife with a hefty family inheritence who forgives him for his dalliance.

As for the other protoganist in the story, Lily, some sources claimed she phoned Catherine to reassure her that the photos were innocent but has remained publicly tight lipped.

Meanwhile, while the actress returned to the UK to continue promoting her new film Rebecca, some very awkward comments she’d made just before the Dominic story hit the headlines did her no favours whatsoever. Lily had said, “I think I make mistakes all the time and I feel that’s what life’s about and I would never want to run away from a situation or be too scared to act.”

Oh dear. Questions were also raised as to her own romantic status, as she’d recently been pictured heading back to Hollywood actor Chris Evans’ hotel in July after a night out...

Alleged set affair with Dominic West: Lily James cancels appearances

Lily James (31, "Baby Driver" ) goes into hiding. The actress canceled an appearance on the US show "Today" according to "Page Six", the gossip site of the "New York Post" . The British "Daily Mail" reports to that James has also canceled her visit to the BBC show by Graham Norton (57).

KATE Garraway revealed actor Dominic West called her to apologise for tactless comments he made about Donald Trump's coronavirus diagnosis on Friday's Good Morning Britain. The Affair and The Wire star, 50, said he "jumped for joy" when he heard the President had contracted the virus.

Dominic West and wife struck 'denial pose' and had 'contrived-looking' kiss in echoes of 'unfaithful politicians trying to save their careers'. 'They were very much still together': Dominic West 's wife 'shocked' as pictures emerge of him in a passionate embrace with Lily James .

We also have to talk about the rather questionable comments Dominic’s made in the past about monogamy. Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar in 2019, he said, “I suppose people suspect that the conventions that we have agreed upon in society, that a man and woman can stay together for life or a certain amount of time without cheating…they’re not really staying together based on anything other than how society thinks they should behave. It’s not the necessarily natural way to be.”

Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock

America singer Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from her husband Brandon Blackstock in June 2020, following 7 years of marriage.

He also told the Evening Standard in 2016 that “women should be more indulgent of affairs,” adding, “It’s daft to kick someone out over a fling, isn’t it? Everyone should turn a blind eye to men’s behaviour between the age of 40 and 50. Let it blow over.” The fact that he’s 51 notwithstanding, the actor’s past comments have led some people to believe that either he and Catherine are in an open marriage, or she’s simply been very “indulgent” of any indiscretions.

Meanwhile, there is of course the other possibility – that this whole thing is just one massive PR stunt. After all, if we look back at those neck-nuzzling photos of Dominic and Lily at lunch, it turns out that the pair were joined by their mutual manager Angharad Wood.

Could their PDA have been a (possibly misguided) attempt to drum up some interest in their upcoming TV series? Or else, divert attention from Dominic’s recent TV faux-pas, when he told Kate Garraway on live TV that he’d “jumped for joy” when he heard that Donald Trump had contracted covid when her husband remains critical in hospital from the virus.

Dominic and Catherine’s odd photocall might support the theory that this is all a performance…not quite The Affair when it comes to production value and story development, but just as fictitious. But then, what does Lily have to gain from the pretence? It’s not as if she needs to up her profile.

As heat went to press, the story was no clearer – but one thing was apparent: Dominic West might just be the most committed method actor of all time.
