IOAN Gruffudd's ex Alice Evans burst into tears on live television over her "nasty" divorce – and revealed she wanted to "harm herself" when he left her.
In her first TV interview since it was revealed her husband walked out "without explanation" after 20 years, Alice broke down as she detailed her bitter break up.
Alice admitted" "I thought I would harm myself" as she told how she was "losing her mind" when Ioan said he was leaving her.
Describing the moment she then found out Ioan had found love with his new girlfriend Bianca Wallace, Alice said: "I don't want to bash him. He's probably going through hell as well.
"But until two weeks ago he insisted there was no one else, then my phone pinged and I saw Ioan had unblocked me on Instagram.
"I thought maybe there was a chance he wanted to talk or something. Then it was announced by him and his mistress that they were a couple.
"I just looked at the picture and it said something like 'finally someone who can make me happy'.
"People started pinging from his set in Australia saying 'so lad you guys are finally out and you're allowed to be happy and you're not being held back anymore.
"I was slayed.
"This is my husband… I'm so sorry…."
Alice broke down in tears as she became overwhelmed with emotion about her marriage breakdown.
She sobbed: "I feel like I'm being totally self-centred. I'm not the only person who has gone through this.
"I think I was owed more than Instagram after 20 years and two children.
"It was a little bit cowardly.
"I'm still a little bit in shock about that.
"I feel like a bit of an idiot as well. You know hindsight is 20-20 so when you're looking back you think 'oh so when that was said…' I'm pretty sure this has been going on quite a while. It's not somebody's he's just met now."
Alice first started crying when she revealed Ioan is refusing to speak to her.
"He won't talk to me," she sobbed.
After the interview, Alice posted a video on Instagram reassuring fans "I'm OK" after her TV breakdown.
Viewers said they were worried for the actress and mum of two who has bravely spoken out about her ordeal.
Ioan looked the picture of happiness in a snap with his new girlfriend Bianca as he confirmed their romance two weeks ago.
The besotted Liar star thanked the actress for helping him to “smile again”.
Alice went on to accuse the 48-year-old actor of cheating on her with Bianca, 29.
In a series of gut-wrenching tweets, the mother of his two children wrote: “So it turns out that my husband, after two years of telling me I’m a bad person and I’m not exciting and he no longer wants to have sex with me and he just wants to be on set abroad . . . has been in a relationship for THREE years behind all our backs.”
She went on to accuse mutual friends of knowing about the affair — and sources close to Alice, 50, say the devastated actress believes she is now “totally vindicated” over all of her suspicions, after Ioan repeatedly denied he had cheated.
