EXCLUSIVE clip of Paddington 2 feat. Hugh Bonneville

Famous British actor Hugh Bonneville has reportedly split from his wife Lulu after 25 years of marriage. 

The Paddington star, 59, and his wife, 55, have apparently gone their separate ways after the actor was spotted at a marriage ceremony without his wedding ring just eight days ago. 

The Notting Hill actor was a guest at the wedding of Downton Abbey co-star Michelle Dockery last Saturday, and his missing ring did not go unnoticed. 

Moreover, he didn’t bring his partner along to the star-studded event, which saw Michelle marry Jasper Waller-Bridge, the brother of Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge. 

Yesterday, a spokesperson for Hugh confirmed to the Sun that the pair have separated.

A source also said: “It’s a shame as locally they were known to be a very sociable couple.

“Hugh has been away from home filming a lot this year.

“He has lost a bit of weight this summer, he was looking trim, tanned and relaxed.” has contacted Hugh’s representatives for further comment. 

Hugh and Lulu married back in November 1998, with the star previously admitting he “thought I would be a bachelor for years.”

The couple also renewed their vows just five years ago, marking their 20th wedding anniversary in Las Vegas’s Graceland Chapel.

They were last seen together in public back in April, when they attended a gala for The Old Vic theatre in London.

They would often also regularly attend red carpet events together, with Lulu often appearing to support Hugh on film and TV sets.

The star has previously praised his wife as his “bedrock” and “anchor”. 

Hugh famously played the Earl of Grantham in ITV’s Downton Abbey and has also enjoyed memorable roles in films including 1999’s Notting Hill, 2014’s The Monuments Men and the Paddington films.
