Johnny Vegas and ex-wife Maia Dunphy spend Christmas together

They surprised many in the summer when they split up after seven happy years.

But comic Johnny Vegas and estranged wife Maia Dunphy spent Christmas together as they took in a show.

The pair share son Tom, two, and enjoyed a night with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra watching It’s A Wonderful Life.

When they confirmed their marriage was over in May, they vowed to remain close.

Johnny tweeted: "A lovely family outing earlier to @liverpoolphil for @ItsAWonderfulLife and now I’m making crackers while we all watch TheQueenAndI on SkyOne. Not a bad start to what is already looking like a very merry Christmas. Cheers".


Maia picked some interesting words, writing: "Strange isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around, it leaves an awful hole…. doesn’t it?"

Their statement earlier this year suggested things were amicable.

Sharing a post from Maia’s Twitter account, the couple wrote: "It is with a heavy heart that we want to let you know that we separated some time ago last year.

"We are telling people now because speculation is unhelpful at best, and dangerous at worst.

"As we think is obvious, we continue to fully support each other; there is no acrimony, no story and no one else involved.’

"We have never played out our relationship publicly, so we don’t feel it’s too much to ask for privacy now.

"We also ask people to be mindful that there are two children involved, and their welfare is our main concern now. Thank you. X."
