‘When you order a pasty and chips for the table to carry on boozing’: Dominic West becomes a viral meme as Twitter explodes with cheeky posts after THAT smug photo op with his wife

  • A female friend of Dominic’s wife, Catherine FitzGerald, who came to console her at the family home near Chippenham, Wiltshire, previously told MailOnline she was ‘devastated’ over his display with Lily
  • The actor has been married to Irish landscape designer and aristocrat Catherine since 2010 – the couple have four children together
  • Last week, it was announced that Lily, 31, had split from Matt Smith, 37, for good after a failed attempt to rekindle their five-year romance in lockdown
  • In July, Lily was pictured enjoying a night out and a cosy park date in London with hunky Captain America star Chris Evans, 39
  • On Tuesday, Dominic and Catherine said their marriage is ‘strong and we’re still very much together’ 

Dominic West has become a viral meme after Twitter exploded with a series of cheeky posts following his smug show of unity with his wife of 10 years – in the wake of being caught in a passionate clinch with Lily James.

Social media users widely mocked the actor, 50, after he and Catherine FitzGerald, 49, kissed outside their Wiltshire home on Tuesday morning, while telling reporters ‘our marriage is strong and we’re very much together’.

One hilarious meme paid reference to Brits being able to order alcohol at Tier Three pubs if they have a ‘substantial meal’, while others compared the situation to the actor’s roles in Chicago, The Wire and The Affair.

Sharing a picture of Dominic looking smug as he posed with the mother of four of his children, one Twitter user cheekily quipped: ‘When you order a pasty and chips for the table to carry on boozing.’

Many posted photos of David Walliams and Matt Lucas’ characters standing outside a country home alongside captions like; ‘Dominic West addressing the press with his wife and snogging her outside his home’, with David’s character saying: ‘My clothes accidentally fell off’. 

Another shared a snap shot of Catherine Zeta Jones as Velma in Chicago alongside the words: ‘And then he ran into my knife *10* times’. 

West played Fred Casely in the 2002 film. Fred was an adultering furniture salesman who cheated on his wife with Roxie Hart (Renee Zellweger).

Meanwhile, his most notable television role as Jimmy McNulty in The Wire was also drawn upon when creating memes. In relation, to the character’s unstable relationships, one wrote: ‘Dominic has gone full Jimmy McNultry on his Mrs there’.     

Little Britain also provided a haven of inspiration for Tweets about Dominic’s marriage drama.

‘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.’

A gardener who lives on the grounds of the stunning property added: ‘This is their family home and as you can see it’s a wonderful place. They’ve got great kids and everything that you can imagine.

The actor also has another daughter Martha, 22, with former girlfriend Polly Astor.
