Leila Farzad and her husband reunite after a ‘TV star fling with her Better co-star Andrew Buchan’
The alleged affair between co-stars Andrew Buchan and Leila Farzad appeared to have broken up their marriage.
But after Downton Abbey actress Amy Nuttall recently got her man back, it now appears Ms Farzad and her husband, businessman Jamie Maizels, have also reunited.
It’s the latest twist in the showbiz fallout that began when 41-year-old Ms Nuttall suspected Broadchurch star Buchan of being unfaithful. She found lingerie he’d bought that didn’t fit hers and receipts for a London hotel near her home.
However, neither Ms Farzad, 39, nor Mr Maizels seemed particularly happy when they were spotted together for the first time since their alleged hoax was exposed in February.
The couple looked uncomfortable in each other’s company as they walked in Battersea, south-west London, with the actress raising her hand to her forehead at one point as she trailed behind her husband of 41 years.

Andrew Buchan and Leila Farzad (pictured together) were believed to be having an affair while starring together in the BBC One drama Better.
Downton Abbey actress Amy Nuttall recently got Andrew Buchan back. The couple is pictured together in May 2017.
The former Emmerdale star later believed he had been enjoying an affair with Mrs Farzad, with whom he starred in the BBC One drama Better.
She separated from Mr. Maizels, her husband of 11 years with whom she has a daughter, and Mrs. Nuttall has filed for divorce.
Farzad has not commented on the rumors. But in March she shared an effusive Instagram post paying tribute to Buchan, 44, for “holding her and drying her tears,” along with a snapshot of them filming the crime series.
Earlier this month, Ms Nuttall reportedly took Buchan back on the condition that he lives by the so-called “777 approach”. It calls for couples to have a date night every seven days, spend a night out every seven weeks, and take a romantic vacation every seven months.
Ms Nuttall, a mother of two, has also requested full access to her husband’s phone and no contact outside of work with any co-stars, according to The Sun.
