Under fire actress Lily James dramatically canceled her appearance on the Graham Norton Show on Monday after being spotted kissing passionately married co-star Dominic West over an intimate weekend in Rome.
The 31-year-old star was due to be on the BBC chat show on Friday to promote her Netflix drama Rebecca with music legend Bruce Springsteen, actor Matthew McConaughey and British singer-songwriter Sam Smith.
However, her performance was suspended after further revelations about her connection with West, 50, in the Italian capital last weekend – instead with Lily's Rebecca co-star Kristin Scott Thomas.
A press release posted Monday by representatives of the show said, "Lily James will appear on the show at a later date."

MailOnline has asked representatives from Lily and Dominic for a comment.
After arriving in town last week, Lily and Dominic took viewers by surprise when they appeared to be kissing while eating outside.
Dominic is best known for playing Noah Solloway in Showtime drama The Affair, which examines the emotional impact of an extramarital relationship between his character and a younger woman named Alison Bailey (Ruth Wilson).
According to a source, MailOnline Dominic and Lily spent two nights in a suite at the top Hotel De La Ville with panoramic views over the city and a two-minute walk from the Spanish Steps.

They only left the hotel for a couple of hours on an electric scooter around the Spanish Steps and Piazza di Pietra. During lunch, they joined their friend and joint manager Angharad Wood at a downtown restaurant.
At the end of lunch Lily sat next to Dominic and couldn't resist cuddling and caressing her neck.
It was announced last Thursday that Lily had finally broken up with 37-year-old The Crown star Matt Smith after a failed attempt to restart their relationship after a five-year romance.
Since the pictures of Dominic and Lily came to light in Rome, he has shown defiant with his wife Catherine Fitzgerald, 49.

Just hours after telling friends that she was "heartbroken" because of the pictures that went viral, she agreed to take part in a bizarre show of unity with The Affair Star in which he told reporters: "Our marriage is strong and we are very much still together".
The mother of four carefully stepped out of the marriage home in Chippenham, Wiltshire with her husband on Tuesday and hid her ring finger in her jeans pocket.
Catherine purposely raised her head and kissed Dominic passionately for the cameras as they emerged through a rusty gate out of their sprawling little house.
Dominic seemed to have a rather smug look on his face as he made it clear that he was still not wearing his wedding ring. He wore the same outfit he wore on his day with Lily and added a brown jacket.

With steady smiles on their faces, he and Catherine handed the photographer a piece of paper on which the words in his handwriting were repeated: "Our marriage is strong and we are very much still together," with their signatures underneath.
MailOnline knows that the actor flew back from Rome for crisis talks with his 10-year-old wife on Monday evening, just hours after she told a friend that she was "broken, shocked and devastated" after the pictures.
Dominic has been married to the Irish landscape architect and mother of four Catherine since 2010.
They share four children – daughter Dora (13), son Senan (12), son Francis (11) and daughter Christabel (seven). While the actor also has another daughter Martha, 21, with former girlfriend, aristocrat Polly Astor.

Last Monday, Catherine confided to a friend that she and Dominic were "a great deal" at the time of his steamy clinch with Lily, and she had said she considered the marriage "probably over".
A friend who came to comfort Catherine told MailOnline that she was "devastated" by the pictures because she thought she and Dominic had a "good marriage".
The friend said to MailOnline: “Catherine has seen the pictures and is devastated. I came over to speak to her as soon as I knew about them.
Catherine tried to speak to Dominic, but he doesn't answer the phone. She is totally shocked because she did not know that something was going on. They've been together a lot so this is completely out of the blue.

Lily and Dominic will star in Emily Mortimer's adaptation of Nancy Mitford's famous novel The Pursuit Of Love for the BBC, starring Emily Beecham & Andrew Scott. Filming began in July.
