DOMINIC West's 'humiliated' wife Catherine FitzGerald is ready to 'move back to Ireland', according to a new report.
Friends of the landscape gardener have claimed that she is planning a permanent move to her ancestral home of Glin Castle after cosy pictures of Dominic and Lily James in Rome emerged last month.
Sources close to Catherine have said the 49-year-old is "completely devastated" by the star's actions and claimed that she's "grown tired of being an actor's wife with all that entails."
A pal told MailOnline: "He lives this other life where he's away at least half the year and she and the kids are waiting for him.
"She's living in a house in England for his career when I think anyone who knows her knows she would much rather be home in Ireland.
"The pictures of Dominic in Rome show just how separate their lives have become. Catherine is still mad about Dominic but it's plainly not working.
"She's been humiliated. Painful as it is, this looks like it could be the time to leave him."
Another friend said that Catherine is now "determined" to make a success of Glin Castle as a business, which she and Dominic took over two years ago.
Based in the West of Ireland, the castle has been turned into an exclusive boutique getaway – and previously the pair have discussed plans to turn it into a wedding venue during an interview with Architectural Digest.
Yesterday, The Sun revealed that their marriage is "as good as over" thanks to his relationship with Lily James.
Catherine’s pals say she is preparing to pull the plug after the actor, who she has four kids with, apparently confessed to "having feelings" for his 31-year-old co-star.
It came just four weeks after The Affair actor, 51, was seen kissing Lily in Italy.
A family friend said: "Catherine has told those closest to her that Dominic has admitted having feelings for Lily.
"At first it seemed as though the whole thing was just a one-off but Catherine has since said it’s become obvious it was more than that.
"Catherine feels crushed by it, naturally. It’s a huge thing to be coming to terms with.
"She has since told the people closest to her their marriage is as good as over now and she doesn’t think there is a way past this."
Catherine put on a united front with her husband after photographs of him and Lily hugging in Rome were published.
The couple, standing outside their house in Wiltshire, signed a note saying their marriage was "strong" and they were "very much still together".
West then smirked after they shared an awkward kiss for the cameras.
However, garden expert Catherine left soon after without West for her family home in Glin Castle, where her mother Olda still resides.
There she called a “crisis summit” with her two sisters, Honor and Nesta, over her marriage.
The family friend added: "Catherine is lying low but she is still talking with Dominic about where they go now.
"It has been a humiliating period for her and she wants Dominic to clean up the mess that’s been created."
West and Lily met on the set of upcoming BBC period drama The Pursuit Of Love.
Lily, who split from Doctor Who actor Matt Smith, 38, earlier this year, has not yet commented on her relationship with West.
