Alice Evans has hit back at claims she was drunk in a video she made to promote her new services on a celebrity pay-for-video site.
The 53-year-old actress – who starred in 102 Dalmations and the TV show The Vampire Diaries – is offering her time via Cameo where she will record personalised messages for a fee.
But Alice troubled some fans with the video announcement as some fear she is struggling to cope following the very public collapse of her marriage to Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd with whom she shares two children.
Alice has taken to social media frequently in the year since they split to blast her soon-to-be ex-husband and his new girlfriend, Australian actress Bianca Wallace, 30.
Fans reacted to Alice’s Instagram post to express concern that she was “drunk” in the footage where she told fans she is a "single mum and sadly need the money" as her husband is "trying to take all the money away".
But the star herself furiously rejected the accusations – hitting back at one follower to declare: “What the f**k…? What the f**k has gone do wrong in your life l=taht you have to say things like this. This is my normal peonality. I am Allowed to be evergivetic and loud and forggetful and yes.. loving. THAT IS WHO I AM.” [sic]
She also reacted to another fan who suggested she ‘sort’ her eyeliner – and wrote back: “I have jsut done 6 vdeos in a row. I have an Etsy business and two kids who need entertainting and fedin and tking out fo walks. zi get about and hour to do all this an dif my eyeliner fell then it's jut too bad.
“Having said that, I don't belieev you were bind meanl just giving tips. Next time I'll take a brak between each on to check thta it hasn't slipt!!! lol!” [sic]
“I am on Cameo!! Watch this and PLEASE book me!" she wrote.
"I am a single mum and sadly need the money. But the good news is that I’m cheap as chips! So do one yourself and pass it on! I love you guys.”
While the footage itself saw Alice making light-hearted and humorous comments about exactly what she would and would not do on camera.
She joked: “In case you didn't know, I'm on Cameo now and will do anything you want.
“No, I will not take my clothes off. No, I will not cut my hair off as there's nothing left of it anyway. No, I will not engage in sexual acts with other people... that's for the other site whatever it is.“
She continued: “But I will, any questions you have to ask me, any anniversaries, any birthdays, any anything. I am a little bit clumsy so sometimes I get it wrong but it's a little bit funny anyway.
“That's about it really. I just want you to know that I am fully, fully engaged in this and I will endeavour to do the best I can for anyone. And if you don't like it I will do another one for free, ok.”
She added: “Also, my husbands trying to take all the money away - I shouldn't say that, but I'm going to make sure I make more money than him, haha, love you.”
