And while the actress admitted she had “a lot” to say about the cheating scandal with her The Pursuit Of Love co-star, she says now is not the time to talk about it.
Lily, 32, and his wife Dom, 51, were pictured looking extremely comfortable in Rome last year.
The bombshell footage showed Dominic, who is married to Catherine FitzGerald but did not wear a wedding ring, leaned down to kiss Lily at a romantic meal, and they were riding around town on a scooter together.
When asked about being at the center of a media storm after the footage came out, Lily told The Guardian: “Ach, I’m not really keen on talking about this. There’s a lot to say, but not now I’m scared. ”
After the footage came out, Dominic and Catherine united in a press conference outside their home as she stood firmly by his side.
They posed for the cameras before handing over a handwritten note insisting their marriage was stronger than ever.
And Catherine even attacked people who questioned their relationship status, telling MailOnline weeks later, “We’re fine, thank you very much, yes. Things are going well between us. We don’t need any advice from anyone. , Thank you. “
The couple have been married since 2010 and have four children together.
And in the aftermath of the scandal, it was reported that Catherine has banned Dominic from seeing, speaking or working with Downton Abbey star Lily.
It is also claimed that the couple considered renewing their wedding vows in an effort to show how committed they are to each other.
A friend told the Mail on Sunday: “The idea of remarrying has been raised.
“Nothing has been decided, nor has yet been, but Catherine brought up the idea and it was discussed a lot. This shows how far we have come since these photographs. “
* Dominic and Lily will be seen together in The Pursuit Of Love, which starts on BBC One on May 9
