Ioan Gruffudd breaks silence on Alice Evans split after girlfriend’s ‘good riddance’ search

Since early 2021, actors Ioan Gruffudd, 49, and Alice Evans, 54, have been embroiled in a bitter public battle over custody and their divorce after more than two decades as a couple. The Forever star has finally broken his silence on the situation after his new girlfriend, Bianca Wallace, 30, said on Instagram of the tumultuous past, “Thank you and good riddance!”

The former couple had been together since meeting on the set of 102 Dalmatians in 2000 and had been married for almost 14 years when they announced their separation.

The statement shocked their fans, but Alice was the first to break the news on social media in a since-deleted tweet.

She wrote: “My beloved husband/soulmate of 20 years, Ioan Gruffudd, has announced that he will be leaving his family from next week. Me and our young daughters are very confused and sad. We were not told. not given a reason other than that he “doesn’t love me anymore”.

Throughout their public split, Alice has continued in the same vein, updating her social media followers with emotional news at every step of the painful process.

“This is the energy that I take into 2023 with me.

“Shall we say thank you and good riddance until 2022? with blinking emoji.

Since filing for divorce in early 2021, Ioan and Alice have been embroiled in a seemingly fierce custody battle over their two young daughters, Ella, 12, and Elise, eight.


In August 2022, the Hornblower actor reportedly won a three-year restraining order against Alice after claiming he was bombarded with messages from her.

The Blackball actress often took to Twitter and Instagram to vent, share updates and make a number of allegations against her ex-husband, which also included presenting ‘evidence’ such as court documents and communications she had received.

According to The Mirror, the restraining order required Alice to stop showing Ioan’s text messages and other communications between him and his children on social media and that she could not contact her employer or make any negative statements about him to his employers.

When Ioan’s new relationship with Bianca became public knowledge seven months after their split, Alice accused the actor of having a three-year affair.

Minutes after the new couple shared their first snap together on Instagram, Alice wrote on social media, “So it turns out my husband, after two years of telling me I’m a bad person and don’t am not exciting and he no longer wants to sleep with me and he just wants to be on a set abroad… has been in a relationship for three years behind our backs. Good luck, Bianca.”

Express.co.uk contacted Ioan’s representatives about the allegations at the time.

As the pandemic continued, with lockdowns rampant, Alice took to Twitter again, accusing Ioan of completely “phantoming” her since he “suddenly decided to end our marriage”.

The latest court news, tracked by the Daily Mail, revealed Alice and Ioan may be in money trouble due to the cost of the divorce.

Ioan is said to have asked the judge to make Alice agree to sell their LA home where she lived and neither party currently has the funds to cover their missed mortgage payments, reportedly totaling $15,271 (£12,390).

In their custody battle, Alice publicly accused Ioan of repeatedly lying, including showing his court statement on Instagram, calling it ‘totally disgusting’ and ‘full of lies’ about who the primary caregiver was. housework.

The current issue of Radio Times with the interview with Ioan Gruffudd is available now.
