Actor Jude Law has made his split from estranged wife Sadie Frost more permanent, he's moved out of the family's London home - while she holidays with her toyboy lover.

THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY star Jude, who is currently abroad himself, ordered removal men to swiftly shift his bed, furniture, clothes and toys belonging to the couple's three children out of the $3.2 million (GBP2 million) pad in Primrose Hill - just six days after Frost filed for divorce (16AUG03).

Jude, 30, will now live in a three-storey house just half a mile (.8 kilometres) away.

A friend of the actor says, "Jude will never return to the family home. Moving his stuff is the final nail in the coffin for the marriage."

Sadie, 37, has been pictured in the British press this week smooching with Spanish hunk Jackson Scott, 22. The pair are thought to have jetted off for a romantic break.
