The trial in July got worldwide attention, featuring claims of brutal violence and sensational revelations of the couple’s tempestuous relationship.

Mr Depp, 57, spent around 20 hours in the High Court’s witness box over five days, discussing his Hollywood lifestyle, including his use of drink and drugs.

His barrister David Sherborne said in closing arguments: “What is important to Mr Depp is clearing his name of these appalling allegations.

“This is not about money, this is about ­vindicating him.”

Judge Mr Justice Nicol is due to give his ruling remotely on Monday.
