Kate Ritchie has a new boy, and she has no fear of showing him off.
The former 42-year-old Home and Away actress was seen packing with her much younger 25-year-old boyfriend John Bell on the PDA while they were holidaying earlier this month in Byron Bay.
Kate, who a few months ago quietly separated from her husband, Stuart Webb, held hands with the businessman as they went to a nearby café to buy a take-away meal.
Kate wrapped her arms around John’s shoulders as they stood in line and hugged him tightly.
By wrapping his hands around her waist and pushing his body against hers, John, who runs a cyber security company, returned Kate’s affections.
For comfort, the Sydney-based radio presenter was dressed in a loose white T-shirt and denim shorts, highlighting its slender pins.
