Prior to deleting her Instagram account, Alice Evans – who is going through a messy divorce with Ioan Gruffudd -claimed Covid-19 had caused her to suffer nose bleeds and vomit – even feeling like she was ‘going to die’ at one point
The estranged wife of actor Ioan Gruffudd told her 58,000 followers last week how she and her two daughters had tested for the viral disease and were experiencing “nose bleeds and continuous vomiting”.
Alice – who shares Ella, 12, and Elsie, eight with her ex – explained how she spent days in bed with symptoms – going on to add that at one point things worsened and “suddenly I felt like I was going to die”.
The 102 Dalmatians actress, 53, has previously deactivated – and reactivated – Twitter, following her acrimonious split from Fantastic Four actor Ioan.
Alice’s Twitter account is current live – and restricted to followers only – with the most recent update shared in January this year.
“Guys – I have to go silent for a while. I’m in a very scary legal situation,” told her followers a month before her former partner filed for a temporary restraining orde r.
“I love you all so much. I promise I will be back.”
Ioan filed for divorce from Alice last year following the fallout of their dramatic split – going on to apply for the temporary restraining order in February 2022.
The former couple met during the filming of 102 Dalmatians and were married for 13 years after they tied the knot in 2007.
Ioan has since moved on from Alice with another co-star, Bianca Wallace, 29.
The couple – who went public with the romance last year – have recently been enjoying cosy trip around the United Kingdom together.
The actress even revealed she had been “practicing her Welsh” earlier this year, as the love birds paid a visit to Ioan’s home country of Wales.

Bianca lives with Multiple Sclerosis and recently opened up about how a supportive partner helps – giving a rare insight into her relationship with Ioan.
The Austrialian star, who was told that she suffered from the condition which affects the brain and nerves three years ago, said she felt “very lucky” to be with someone as supportive as Ioan, the Daily Mail reports.
The actress has been using her new-found platform to raise awareness and share her experiences with others with the condition.
“Look it’s not an easy illness. I’m more proud of the partners, I feel more sorry to the partners of people with MS because for us you have to face it, you genuinely don’t know what it’s going to be like,” she said during the SMS Battles Quiz for The MS Society on Thursday.
Bianca also revealed she received an outpouring of support after sharing her diagnosis on social media and said she previously “lived in fear” of what others would think of her if they found out she had MS.
Both Alice and Ioan’s representatives have previously been contacted for comment.
