Mrs Wat­son shows off her new love


AC­TRESS Amanda Ab­bing­ton, who spoke openly of her heart­break when she split up with her Sher­lock co-star Martin Free­man af­ter 16 years, tells me that she has found love again. Amanda, 44, who has two chil­dren with Free­man, con­firms she’s court­ing North­ern Ir­ish ac­tor Jonjo O’Neill, 40, who has ap­peared in hit tele­vi­sion se­ries in­clud­ing The Fall. ‘My boyfriend Jonjo is in the show tonight,’ she said at the Harold Pin­ter birthday gala in the West End. ‘I’m so ex­cited to see him per­form. We both love Pin­ter.’ The ac­tress, who kept her sep­a­ra­tion from Free­man in 2016 a secret for six months partly be­cause they played Dr Wat­son and his wife in Sher­lock, says O’Neill has al­ready given her a taste for old plea­sures. ‘I was vege­tar­ian for three years and then I met my boyfriend and be­came a meateater again,’ she ex­plains.
