Excellent dilemma. I think you've got to tell your friend to come clean to you and Mrs Friend, unless he has a VERY good excuse. Otherwise it leaves you with no Mrs Friend (who will dislike you for lying to her) and no Friend (unless you condone his behaviour).
There's a slim chance that Friend might have an embarrasing-but-harmless excuse for using you as cover. Give him a chance to tell you this. You've got to at least ask him before damning him, but (assuming you don't make a habit of offering alibis to all and sundry) Friend has taken a big liberty in drawing you into this.
What did you really do? (or will you make us wait until the end of the week to find out?)
...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.
