The breakups just keep coming! UK actors Anna Friel and David Thewlis have split up after denying reports of problems in their relationship for months. The former couple have a five-year-old daughter, Gracie, but have had to be apart for over six months due to various acting commitments.

A friend told the Mail: ‘Things have not been great for a long time and they have tried to keep this quiet to protect everyone.

‘It certainly did not help that Anna and David have been forced to live apart for so long, but there are other issues at hand that have made them realise the relationship was over.’

Friends are still hopeful that the ­couple can resolve their differences. The source added: ‘They do care about each other very much, and the most important thing now is that they both continue to be the best parents they can be for Gracie.

Another couple I’m sad to see break up. I just hope they can keep it civil for the sake of their daughter.
