Ioan Gruffud has been channelling his inner James Bond as he enjoyed some time in the sun in Los Angeles this week.
The newly single star, 47, was spotted doing his best impression of Daniel Craig as James Bond in Casino Royale as he ran his hands through his hair in the shallow water, revealing he was no longer wearing his wedding ring.
The actor was in knee-deep water in a pair of navy blue trunks with palm trees and suns all over them as he smiled at someone on the beach.
Ioan is currently in the midst of a divorce from wife Alice Evans, which has been making the headlines.
He cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ in the divorce filing after 102 Dalmatians actress Alice claimed he had ‘walked out’ on the family.
The day of separation is listed as New Year’s Day and a note on the document adds that the pair are in a ‘collaborative process and intend to resolve all issues including spousal support by written agreement’.

Ioan and Alice, 49, share two daughters, Ella, 11, and Elsie, seven, and began dating in 2000 after meeting on the set of 102 Dalmatians, tying the knot in 2007.
The couple’s separation has been played out in public after Alice revealed on social media earlier this year that she and Ioan were discussing legal separation.

She wrote: ‘It must be weird to comprehend why somebody would share their pain on social media rather than with their nearest and dearest.
‘I get that. You must think I’m an a**hole. I’m not though. I don’t have a mum, or a dad. I don’t have any close friends in LA. I’ve looked after my kids for half their lives alone. My husband knows that.’

Alice added: ‘I’m sorry but f**k your discomfort about my lack of dignity. F**k your cheap quips about how “she didn’t know!” Ha ha ha what a load of b*****ks.’
Ioan has yet to comment on the split publicly, only releasing a joint statement with Alice in January, reading: ‘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.’
