Dominic removed his wedding ring for the getaway with he and Lily seemingly unable to keep their hands off each other.

Daily Mail reports just hours after Catherine told friends she was "heartbroken" over the images of her husband kissing his Pursuit of Love co-star, she agreed to put on a bizarre show of unity in front of photographers who waited outside their home.

The publication reports that Catherine appeared to be anxious about the public display and even held a tissue and hid her ring finger in her pocket.

The pair handed the waiting reporters a note saying, "Our marriage is strong and we're very much still together."

Dominic kissed his wife for the reporters, still not wearing his wedding ring, but also wearing the same outfit he'd been wearing with Lily along with a brown jacket.

Dominic and Catherine have been married for ten years and have four children together: Dora, 13, son Senan, 12, son Francis, 11, and daughter Christabel, seven.

Catherine reportedly confided in a friend after seeing the photos of her husband kissing Lily that she considered her marriage to be "probably over".

A friend told the Daily Mail: "Catherine has been trying to speak with Dominic but he's not answering his phone. She's totally shocked because she didn't know anything was going on. They were very much together, so this is completely out of the blue.

"She thought they had a good marriage and now it's probably over. That's how she feels right now but the two of them need to speak but at the moment, she's lost for words."

Dominic and Lily have known each other for almost 10 years after starring in Othello together in 2011.

The actress recently split with her boyfriend The Crown star Matt Smith.
