Alice Evans cut a low-key figure as she stepped out with her daughter Ella, 12, on Sunday, one day after her estranged husband Ioan Gruffudd made his first public appearance with new girlfriend Bianca Wallace.
Ioan, 48, and Bianca, 29, were seen walking arm-in-arm in LA on Saturday, after he shared a picture of them both on Instagram back in October, announcing their relationship.
Alice, 53, who has made numerous public posts about the split, looked casual on the outing to the Apple store as she wore black leggings, a T-shirt and a padded gilet which she paired with gold boots.

Sharing the short video on Saturday, Alice appeared to be in high spirits after using the filter to superimpose a pair of enormous lips onto her face.
Bianca then returned to Instagram on Sunday evening, just hours after her first public appearance with the beleaguered Welsh star.

The British star recently made the unsubstantiated claim that her estranged husband bought cocaine while filming Australian crime drama Harrow.
In a now deleted post, she claimed the actor purchased ’24 grams’ of the Class-A drug while away on location.
Two days later Evans posted snaps with Gruffudd taken in happier times, showing the former couple smiling as they posed together on holiday.

The snaps came after Evans posted a series of public tweets seen by The Sun in which she reportedly wrote: ‘One day Ioan came home and told me he’d bought 24g of coke with a friend, and then the pandemic came and he had to leave it behind.’
She added: ‘It was a huge coke party, from what he told me.
‘I was kind of peeved to hear this, but just wanted him home. However, cocaine and alcohol relationships can be hard to break.’
Oh dear: The snaps come after Alice posted a series of public tweets seen by The Sun in which she reportedly wrote: ‘One day Ioan came home and told me he’d bought 24g of coke with a friend, and then the pandemic came and he had to leave it behind’
New love: Ioan recently went public with his new girlfriend Bianca Wallace, after Alice claimed the pair had been embroiled in a three-year affair – which has been denied by a friend of the couple
Alice has also offered advice to women getting a divorce with a spoof masterclass in a bizarre post on Instagram.
Evans posted the strange clip to social media, telling other women they should ‘be a bit more aggressive’ during divorce and that many people experience their husbands ‘disappearing with another woman’.
She said: ‘Oh hello, I’m Marjorie and I’m here to talk to you about a very, very sad thing that happens to a lot of women, myself included.
‘And it’s the fact that we can we married for several years with one man that we can love with such intensity and then the man can just disappear with another woman and break our hearts!
‘So I know there’s been a lot of talk about this at the moment and I would really love for other people to talk up, we can’t make it Me Too movement as I’m not really sure what that was but I would love for others to talk about it.
‘The last time I spoke to my husband, you see the money was mine, and he became part of my family and when they did us over they said the lawyers had wrapped us up and they’d taken everything.’
She then changed into an aggressive east London accent and exclaimed: ‘You’ve got to f***ing kidding haven’t you! What you’re taking everything are you? That’s the tennis court, the Lamborghini, the f***ing whatever.’
Switching back to the posh accent she continued: ‘And he said ‘yes”, before she switches back again to say: ‘Yes and I’ve got two f***ing cousins on their way that are going to f***ing cut you, you know that!’
Odd: It comes after earlier this week Alice offered advice to women getting a divorce with a spoof masterclass in a bizarre new post on Instagram on Thursday
Spoof: She captioned the post: ‘Women must stick together. I teach alternate methods. DM me for info, or just flirting if this leaves you cold. Hugs to all!’
She concluded by saying: ‘So yes I think we just need to be a bit more aggressive don’t you!’

While some in the comments found the clip funny, others urged her to seek help in the aftermath of her breakup.
Evans detailed the effect her split has had on the couple’s young daughters in a further emotional Instagram post.
Alice shares daughters Ella, 12 and Elsie, eight, with the Harrow actor, shared a snap of the family dog, and wrote: ‘Everybody was a bit low energy today. I feel like we are all starting to realize what life without Daddy will really be like, and we need to make plans account for this…

Referencing her recent tell-all interview in which she branded Gruffudd a ‘coward’ and blasted his new romance with Bianca Wallace, 29, she continued: ‘I was on the Kyle and Jackie O show today and Jackie was incredible although I sensed Kyle was a little more on the fence. ( not that I blame him at all!
‘You gotta make sure there are two-sides to every argument.
‘At one point he asked me the same question everybody’s been asking me: Why did you decide to do this? The question always trips me up because I try to be 100% honest in everything I do.
‘And as far as the ripple I’ve set off which has brought letters, emails, messages to me from all over the world saying they wish they’d had a voice…
‘….I think on a personal level, I did it because I had no other choice. I was gagged, blinded and lies were being told about me. Lies that I was supposed to just accept, because I had no power.
‘When I spoke out on SM after almost six months of crying ever night and driving my friends insane….
‘It felt like somebody had lanced an enormous boil somewhere on my body and all the c**p was coming out. That’s so gross and I’m so sorry but it was like that!’
Taking a further shot at Gruffudd, she wrote: ‘Thanks to those of you who are still supporting me. I love and will love you forever. There’s nothing wrong with calling out a man who is telling awful stories about you, shearing openly and then telling you it’s your fault.

Gruffudd recently went public with his new girlfriend Wallace after his estranged wife claimed the pair had been embroiled in a three-year affair – which has been denied by a friend of the couple.
Evans has since shared intimate details about her bitter break-up in a tell-all interview on The Kyle & Jackie O Show on Monday.
Speaking to the breakfast radio show, the actress described the break-up and the subsequent attention as a ‘very strange thing to happen’.
She accused the actor of ‘gaslighting’ her – a form of manipulation that causes people to question their judgments and reality.
Evans explained that she’s ‘chosen to do four or five interviews’ about the split, after previously feeling ‘gagged’.
‘[People would] say things like, “Oh, he’s such a good lad, your husband. You’ll have him forever.” And I wanted to go, “No, he’s not,”‘ she said.
After posting a series of revealing tweets about the split, Evans described the feeling she got from sharing her side of the story as ‘releasing some kind of cut’.
She added that she ‘did not see [the split] coming’, and said Gruffudd had sent her a message telling her he was counting down the hours until he saw her, just days before their break-up.
‘He still hasn’t told me, because now he’s ghosting me,’ she said of their split, revealing the last time she saw her husband of 14 years was in January.
Following their split, Gruffudd revealed he’s now in a relationship with Australian actress Bianca Wallace.
The revelation left Evans blindsided, and she claimed ‘he may have been cheating on me for two years’.
‘He could’ve gone about it the right bloody way. He could’ve sat us down and said, “Look, this has happened. Let’s talk about it.” And I would’ve been open to that,’ she tearfully explained.
Speaking about Gruffudd and his new girlfriend, she added: ‘He’s a coward. I don’t know her, I hear that she’s very pushy, but I don’t want to drag anybody that I don’t know.’
Lost love: In a since-deleted tweet, Alice said she was blindsided by Ioan’s decision to leave her and their daughters, claiming he ‘no longer loves’ her
