Bleary-eyed Dominic West is helped into his hotel by a female pal after partying till 4am… days after putting on a united front with his wife Catherine
Dominic West had to be helped into his hotel by a female pal in the early hours of Thursday morning after a nine-hour drinking session.
In pictures obtained by The Sun, the actor, 52, looked worse for wear as he was held upright by the woman, with a night porter lending a hand.
Just days earlier, the thespian had put on a united front with wife Catherine Fitzgerald, proving they were back on track after he hit headlines in 2020 when he was pictured on a cosy outing with actress Lily James.

An onlooker told the publication: ‘Dom was clearly having a great evening. He was smiling like a cheeky schoolboy and had loosened up by whipping off his bow tie.
‘His face got redder as time went by and he was struggling to keep his eyes open.
‘Later he danced with a cab driver who helped him out his car. A man and woman then helped him into his hotel. It looked like he’d had a wild night.’

In the pictures, Dominic looked bleary-eyed and struggled to stay upright without support after he danced in the street with the taxi driver.
The actor gave his pal a peck on the cheek before she helped him stagger up the stairs.
There is no suggestion that anything untoward happened between Dominic and the woman.
Earlier, The Affair actor had earlier cut a dapper figure as he attended Dunhill’s pre-BAFTA filmmakers dinner and party at Dunhill House in London on Wednesday.
However, the publication reports that at 10pm, three hours after he stepped out at the dinner at 7pm, Dominic then headed off in a cab to celebrity hotspot Chiltern Firehouse with a group of female friends.
MailOnline have contacted representatives of Dominic for comment.

Dominic’s wild night out comes days after his earlier outing with his wife of 12 years Catherine, where they enjoyed a low-key trip to a London market.
Dominic had wrapped up against the chilly weather in a dark green wool hat and a matching navy jacket, while Catherine opted for a crochet red beanie hat and a cream scarf as they perused some of the items on offer.
It comes after Lily James herself appeared to break her silence on the scandal surrounding her snaps with Dominic while promoting her Hulu series Pam & Tommy, admitting she sympathised with Pamela Anderson after finding herself in a ‘difficult situation.’
While Lily did not directly reference her outing with Dominic, who later insisted his marriage to wife Catherine was still going strong, she admitted that being under the same scrutiny as Pamela was ‘a lot.’
She told Rolling Stone: ‘Women in the public eye at some point experience some sort of difficult situation in their relationship between privacy and your life being in the tabloids.
‘It was a lot. It’s a story as old as time.’
Lily has previously declined to discuss the media storm surrounding herself and Dominic, after the pair were pictured exploring Rome in October 2020.
When asked about being at the centre of such a storm during an interview with The Guardian, she said: ‘Ach, I’m not really willing to talk about that. There is a lot to say, but not now, I’m afraid.’
Following the snaps emerging, Dominic put on a public display of unity with his wife Catherine, with the couple releasing a statement about their marriage.
It read: ‘Our marriage is strong and we’re very much still together.’
Catherine is also said to have banned Dominic from speaking with the actress as part of a peace deal struck between the couple.
Dominic finally won forgiveness for the infamous photographs that showed him flirting outrageously with Lily.
Since the public scandal, Lily has found love with Queens of the Stone Age rocker Michael Shuman, 35, and has been pictured meeting his parents in the states.
