James, who plays newlywed Adam in Cold Feet, said to the Mail Online at the time that news of the flings emerged: “It was never anything to do with my wife.”

“Any time I did anything like that, there was drink involved.  I don't think I did anything sober.”

“When you suddenly become successful, the change is enormous, financially and in terms of recognition and the way people treat you. I found that hard to deal with. I just regret the hurt it caused my family.”

The couple separated in 2013, while the divorce is currently being finalised in a UK court.

Sonia has moved into a €1.6m house, while  James  is living one mile away in South London, The Mirror reports.

James (51) met Sonia in 1989 on the set of Hamlet and wed five years later.

They have two daughters together, Peggy (18) and Mary (six).

He previously said of his indiscretions: "The difficulty is I want to chase love and the mixture of romance and alcohol is lethal."

A spokesman for James and Sonia said the couple separated “over two years ago."

"They remain on the best of terms and request that their family's privacy is respected. There are no third parties involved."
