Rafe Spall has fuelled rumours he has split from his wife Elize du Toit after being seen looking close with on-screen spouse, Esther Smith.
The son of TV legend Timothy Spall, was seen strolling hand in hand with the actress who plays his other half in the Apple TV comedy Trying.
Rafe tied the knot with ex-Hollyoaks star Elize in 2010 and the couple have since had three children together.
However, it was reported last year that the couple had hit a rough patch and separated after growing apart.
Snapped together by The Sun, the Trying co-stars walked round Notting Hill hand in hand.
Onlookers shared their thoughts after spotting The Salisbury Poisoning actor with a new leading lady.
One said: ‘They looked very happy and comfortable in each other’s company. Both were laughing and smiling as they walked to the pub for a drink.
‘They were holding hands and seemed to be very close. They gave the impression of being a couple who have been together for some time.’
Playing spouses on-screen in Trying since 2020, the duo have had some time to practice life as a couple.
Rafe said in July of his acting partner Esther: ‘I get to hang out with Esther all day. We really get on. She’s my favourite person I’ve ever done acting with.’
Later on during another interview session, he shared that he had ‘never felt such a connection with another performer…
‘People often comment on the chemistry we have.
‘I’m really pleased that people enjoy it, but they won’t enjoy it as much as we do.’
The actor who starred in Hot Fuzz and The Big Short decided to leave busy London behind for family life in the Cotswolds in 2019 but was pulled back later on for work commitments.
Appearing as Atticus Finch in a five-month run of the To Kill A Mockingbird stage show, the famous offspring moved to London alone during his contract with the production.
Following that move, earlier this year he admitted he regretted not spending more time with his children who are 11, nine and six.
