Ioan Gruffudd, 48, cosies up to girlfriend Bianca Wallace, 29, on trip to his native Wales… after his ex Alice Evans says she and daughters will be ‘homeless in two months’
Ioan Gruffudd enjoyed a trip to his native Wales alongside his girlfriend Bianca Wallace on Wednesday.
The couple shared a loved-up snap of themselves while on a nature walk after enjoying a sightseeing trip around London last week.
In one snap, the pair cosied up as they posed in front of a castle, with Bianca donning a blue jacket and white top.

In another snap, she wrapped up in a black coat and matching top while posing on a bench.
Alongside the post, Australian actress Bianca wrote in Welsh: ‘I’ve been practicing my Welsh’.
It comes after Ioan’s ex-wife Alice Evans claimed that she and her daughters ‘will be homeless in two months’, amid her legal battle with him.
The actress, 53, shared the update as she alleged that her children, Ella, 12, and Elsie, eight, will be losing ‘the only house they have ever known.’

Taking to Instagram, the mother-of-two shared a candid photo before explaining her situation to her followers.
Alongside a photo she penned: ‘Rough, rough day today.
‘The girls and I found out we are going to lose the only house they have ever known. In two months we will be homeless.’
‘I hesitated about sharing, because when your ex has paid good money to have you gagged and you risk jail by speaking out. (Communist China, anyone?) it gets really scary.’

She continued: ‘But driving home tonight after hacking dropped both girls at different play dates/ parties, arranged to pick them up, been told how much they’ll miss me and that they can’t wait to have ‘family day at home’ tomorrow, I feel the tears starting again. Tears of fear. Tears of the possibility of breaking their hearts.
‘They love this house. It wouldn’t be the end of the world. We can find a condo to rent somewhere I’m sure.
‘Just feeling wistful tonight! Bear with me, I’ll be back! I promise!’
Alice’s update follows the news that she applied for legal and physical custody of her children following her legal battle with her ex-husband, Ioan.

In court documents obtained by People, the actress asked that visitation rights be granted to Ioan, 48.
She also requested ‘spousal support, termination of the court’s ability to award spousal support to Gruffudd, and for her attorney fees to be paid by her estranged husband’, while citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for their split.
The 102 Dalmatians star previously asked the court to determine the rights to their family home in Los Angeles.
Ioan had been married to Alice for 14 years before he filed for divorce in March last year, later applying for a restraining order in February 2022.
Alice and Ioan’s representatives have been contacted for comment by MailOnline.

It comes after the actress laid into his new girlfriend Bianca in a series of abusive texts, calling her a ‘vixen’ and telling him she has ‘your nuts stuck in her veneers’ – according to a bombshell court filing.
The Welsh actor submitted 113 pages of abusive text messages, emails and social media posts as he applied for a restraining order against his ex, claiming she threatened to do to him ‘what Amber Heard did to Johnny Depp’ and paint him as a drug-addicted abuser.
In his court filing, Ioan claims he told Alice he wanted out of the marriage in August 2020 and since then, she has harassed him with hundreds of unanswered text messages, abusive emails and social media posts – many of which he included in the filing.

One message read: ‘If you throw me out of the house, I will call all the tabloids in the UK. There is NO going back now though. I just think you should know what you’ve gotten yourself into. You think you have a bad reputation now? Lol!
‘You think once it’s over I will stop talking? I am going to dedicate the rest of my life to spreading awareness of what you have done,’ she said in one text.
She went on to allege that he’d told her of times castmates bought cocaine, and that he never gave her sexual pleasure. ‘Your face and body now look hideous to me. I am starting on dating apps…,’ one text read, while in another she writes: ‘I have no idea why the hell I fell in love with you.’
At other times she appears apologetic, writing: ‘I’m sorry I sent ranting texts last night, I’ll try really hard not to do it any more.’ But the messages quickly revert again to being abusive, but then quickly flips back to insulting him.
In a written statement, Ioan claims she verbally threatened to tell the media he had abused her and do ‘what Amber Heard did to Johnny Depp’.

‘Alice told me verbally multiple times that she would do to me what Amber Heard did to Johnny Depp.
‘Alice threatened to tell people I had abused her and our daughters; she threatened to call the police on me if I did not comply with her demands; she threatened to tell people I am a drug addict and put me in prison; she threatened to write a fake diary that reflected an abused victim, and to have the diary published; and she threatened to destroy my mother.
‘Alice told me she would win, and everyone would believe her over me.’
In her response in court, Alice said she had ‘never threatened’ him with slanderous statements or harassed him. Her representatives have not responded to requests for comment about the texts and emails contained in the lawsuit.

In the declaration, Ioan goes on to claim Alice had already made ‘false and harassing’ posts about him on social media’, as well as sending ‘hundreds’ of abusive emails, texts and video calls.
Dozens of messages were included in the court documents, in which Alice appeared to criticize the star for not working.
‘It’ embarrassing now that everybody is telling me you are done. That nobody wants to [employ] you. That Dom West is at the top of the lists because he ‘did the right thing’. And by the way it doesn’t matter what is really going on in the relationship, for god’s sake. It’s about appearances. Jesus Christ think of Cary grant and Rock Hudson.
‘Why on EARTH do you think Tom Cruise and John Travolta went to such extents? I’m increasingly angry that you have sabotaged your career. Insanely angry. I GAVE UP my career for this.
Bombshell: Texts from Alice to Ioan include many about their kids, custody agreements and her ranting about other portions of their lives
At odds: In her court filing, Alice said she that had never ‘threatened or harassed’ Ioan. Her attorneys and reps have not commented on the texts that were submitted
‘And you throw it away because you feel a stronger connection to [your parents] than you do to your own brethren? It’s just so confusing. . . You KNOW your Mum is a mental case. Why on earth do you want to give up everything we’ve established for the sake of somebody who doesn’t even love you?’
She added: ‘Your face and body now look hideous to me. I am starting on dating apps ( not had the balls to actually go live yet) because I want to find a man who really loves me after being deprived of that for 20 whole years.
‘I am convinced I still have time, and my personality will shine through. I have no idea why the hell I fell in love with you. Biggest mistake if my life. ( except for the kids)’
The actor claimed she had also turned on his new girlfriend, Bianca, such as by publishing private information about her.
He continued: ‘It was extremely upsetting and stressful for me to continuously receive these types of hostile and aggressive text messages from Alice. On July 22, 2021, I blocked Alice’s phone number on my phone.’
Serious: Alice is also requesting ‘for her attorney fees to be paid by her estranged husband’, while citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for their split
One of the examples appeared to show Alice saying: ‘Dude your film with Bianca is the most embarrassing thing I have EVER seen in Deadline. . . You have left a family you were providing for. You had SPECIFICALLY asked this loving family to wait for you while you worked abroad. We did.
‘Then you met the most psychopathic succubus ever minnow to man, and fell for her. even Prince Harry… whatever. No NO NO NO nO.
‘Find some financing then make whatever film you want. But don’t take away everything you have because some vixen has your nuts between her veneers. PS: There is already betting on how long until she leaves you! PROPER BETTING! Now THAT’S famous.’
Alice rejected all the claims made by Ioan in the restraining order application.
She wrote: ‘I believe that Petitioner is filing this request merely as a ploy to gain some sort of advantage over me in our divorce proceedings.
‘As Petitioner has not seen our children for over 8 months, I believe he is trying to set some type of record that I am a horrible mother.’
Alice and Ioan confirmed their split in a series of furious tweets posted in January 2021.
She has since documented every toxic turn in their subsequent divorce proceedings across social media, and repeatedly slated him for being in a relationship with Bianca Wallace.
Eek! It comes after she laid into his new girlfriend in a series of abusive texts, calling her a ‘vixen’ and telling him she has ‘your nuts stuck in her veneers’ – according to a bombshell court filing (Alice and Ioan pictured in 2016)
