Lily James has broken her silence on the photographs of her and married co-star Dominic West on a trip to Italy.

The 32 year old was photographed with Dominic, 51, during a weekend away in October, despite him being married to his wife of 10 years Catherine FitzGerald.

Dominic and Lily were filming the romance drama The Pursuit of Love at the time, with the series hitting screens this weekend.

As she gears up to star alongside Dominic in the series, Lily has spoken out on the infamous photos for the first time, claiming there is "a lot to say."

Speaking to The Guardian, Lily was asked: "You found yourself at the centre of a media storm last autumn [due to rumours of an affair with Pursuit of Love castmate Dominic West]. What was that like?"

The Cinderella star responded: "Ach, I'm not really willing to talk about that. There is a lot to say, but not now, I'm afraid."

In the photos, shot just one week after Lily announced her split from Doctor Who actor Matt Smith, she was seen cuddling up to the actor in Rome, sparking discussion about Dominic's marriage to Catherine.

Dominic and Lily were seen enjoying a scooter ride, with the pair tenderly touching throughout their tour of the capital.

Lily could be seen in a floaty floral dress, while Dominic was wearing a shirt and navy trousers.

Another image showed the pair sitting in the sunshine and enjoying glasses of wine at a restaurant, with the actor nuzzling into Lily's cheek at one point.

Other shots then show the pair playing tourists as they took photos of monuments whilst making their way around the romantic city.

A source at the time told the MailOnline that Dominic and Lily spent two nights at five star establishment Hotel De La Ville.

Days after the photos hit the internet, Dominic insisted that his marriage is "strong" as he posed with Catherine outside their home.

Outside the Wiltshire cottage he shares with wife Catherine, Dominic shared a message that read: "Our marriage is strong and we are very much still together. Thank you, Catherine and Dominic."

The couple also put on a united front as they kissed and put their arms around each other.
