“I’m with Rhys and I’m very happy about it,” Friel told the Daily Mail.

Rumours that the Friel, 34, and Ifans, 43, were an item spread when they worked on TV movie Neverland last year, but today’s announcement is the first official confirmation of a relationship.

In recent weeks, Ifans has been seen leaving Friel’s Notting Hill house in the early hours and one time was snapped leaving dressed in a bath robe.

Friel split with long-term partner David Thewliss in 2010, while Ifans became tablioid fodder in 2008 when he was seeing Sienna Miller.
