Anna Friel played Beth Jordache in Brookside

Anna Friel, 35, has put her wedding plans on hold due to 43-year-old Rhys Ifans' party lifestyle.

‘She loves him but finds him a nightmare to live with. She says he's like a child,' a pal reveals.

‘She hides his keys to stop him going out.

'After he's had a few beers she switches it to non-alcoholic beer.'

Anna - who is mum to daughter Gracie, 6, with former partner David Thewlis - is also said to have banned Rhys from seeing Kate Moss.
