Alice Evans was seen playfully poking fun at her estranged husband Ioan Gruffudd’s nose in a tongue-in-cheek post she shared to Instagram on Sunday.
The actress, 50, split from Liar star Ioan, 47, earlier this year, and has addressed the pair’s acrimonious split several times on social media, following Ioan filing for divorce in March.
In her latest post, Alice shared a black and white photo of Ioan cuddling one of the couple’s daughters on the sofa and couldn’t help but make a jibe at her ex.

The sweet snap captures the adorable moment between the father and daughter, with Ioan appearing in the photo shirtless and with a side profile.
Alice, who is known for not holding back on her social media page, captioned the post: ‘A thing of beauty. I know.’
‘The only thing we all worry about secretly is: will she get his nose? Shhhh,’ she teased.
Alice later took to Instagram once again to insist her comment was all in good humour and she had only been joking about Ioan and his nose.

‘I was joking about the husband, honest,’ she said alongside a close-up shot of herself as she teased once more: ‘I mean look [at] this – she would TERRIFY you!!!!’
Alice was also seen light-hearted asking for applications for her ‘second husband’.
She said alongside another selfie: ‘Mood? Black snd white and i’m doin alright. If you want to apply for the part if ‘second husband” please let me know below. (sic)’
Alice continued: ‘I just want a nice chap who is a raging democrat abs likes to talk and talk and talk about anything. ( interest in fashion, foreign languages and civil aviation would obviously help! )’
She added: ‘(I’m only half kidding..)’
Only kidding: Alice then insisted she was joking in another post she shared online where she was then seen poking fun at a black and white snap of herself

Ioan filed for divorce from Alice in March, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason behind their split.
The document, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on March 1, revealed the former couple separated on New Year’s Day – a month before they went public with their relationship status.
At the time, they had shared a joint statement that read: ‘As you can imagine, this is an incredibly difficult time for our family and we remain committed to our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy.’
It’s reported the divorce papers state the exes are in a ‘collaborative process and intend to resolve all issues including spousal support by written agreement’.
Alice, meanwhile, had addressed the pair’s split in a shock statement shared to Twitter in January in which she claimed Ioan had ‘mentally tortured’ her.
The mum-of-two also accused her estranged husband of ‘winding the s**t up me’ as she posted a vitriolic video about their ‘collaborative divorce’ talks.
She said: ‘I have been served with a petition for divorce and it’s came out of the blue and I won’t cry. But we’ve been 20 years together, we have two amazing kids. I don’t know why.
‘At the moment we’re doing something called collaborative divorce which is somewhere between a really kind way of doing divorce and a phenomenal scam.
‘Because in one way it’s “okay, let’s hear what you would want and take it to the court afterwards” and in another way it’s like, people in the acting business will know when an agent says to you “we just can’t find you the roles.”
‘It’s a bit like, I’d like my daughter to stay with me on Saturday nights, “it’s just not within our possibilities.”‘
TV and film star Alice then insisted Ioan had misled her with collaborative divorce, adding: ‘And then I read nothing is binding in collaborative, absolutely nothing.
Speaking out: Alice has been vocal about the divorce on social media and hit back at those criticising her for speaking out so publicly about the split

‘So if I want my daughter to stay one more night in my house, the court hasn’t said anything so I can do it. So my husband is winding the s**t up me, saying what he says is the law, well we haven’t got to the law yet.
‘Lawyers aren’t the law. Lawyers are there to f*** the law. That’s what I always said. Anyway I may have some more thoughts later.’
Alice was also seen hitting back at criticism over speaking about details of her divorce with Ioan so publicly and the impact it may have on their children.
She shares two daughters Ella, 12, and Elsie, eight, with Ioan.
Alice hit back stating that the girls had no idea about the couple’s public profile and ‘probably never will’.
She wrote: ‘You know what they ARE upset about though? That their Dad walked out and abandoned them out of the blue. Without explanation.’
Alice and Ioan met on the set of 102 Dalmatians in 2000, when Alice was in a relationship with Pablo Picasso’s grandson Olivier.
She and Ioan became engaged six years later after she gave him an ultimatum about their relationship, and they tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Mexico in September 2007.
Ioan hasn’t publicly addressed the couple’s divorce. MailOnline contacted representatives for the actor for comment at the time.
