Dominic West and wife Catherine share 'socially distanced' family photo two months after he kissed Lily James in Rome

DOMINIC West and wife Catherine put on a united front as they posed for a socially distanced family photo in Ireland — two months after he kissed Lily James in Rome.

Catherine, 49, shared the snap on Instagram and wrote: "Happy Christmas from Glin Castle."

Her actor husband, 51, stood next to eldest daughter Dora, 13, whilst Catherine, a landscape gardener, was flanked by sons Christabel, seven, Francis, 11 and Senan, 12.

Dominic, who stars in The Affair in which he cheats with a younger woman, was snapped by The Sun in October kissing actress Lily James, 31 on a trip to Rome.

He then put on a display of unity with Catherine outside of the home they share with their four children.

The pair held a signed note claiming their marriage was “strong”.

West smirked after they shared an awkward kiss for the cameras.

However, Catherine left soon after without Dominic for her family home in Glin Castle, Ireland.

She held a "crisis summit" with her two sisters before telling friends her relationship was "as good as over".

Catherine's pals said she was preparing to pull the plug after the actor apparently confessed to “having feelings” for Lily.

Another friend said that Catherine is now "determined" to make a success of Glin Castle as a business, which she and Dominic took over two years ago.

Based in the West of Ireland, the castle has been turned into an exclusive boutique getaway – and previously the pair have discussed plans to turn it into a wedding venue during an interview with Architectural Digest.

A family friend said: "Catherine has told those closest to her that Dominic has admitted having feelings for Lily.

"At first it seemed as though the whole thing was just a one-off but Catherine has since said it’s become obvious it was more than that.

"Catherine feels crushed by it, naturally. It’s a huge thing to be coming to terms with.

"She has since told the people closest to her their marriage is as good as over now and she doesn’t think there is a way past this."

West and Lily met on the set of upcoming BBC period drama The Pursuit Of Love.
