Kate Ritchie attempts to go incognito in Sydney’s Double Bay as she is spotted for the first time since her DUI and three month driving ban


Since being arrested for drunk driving by police in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs last month, Kate Ritchie has not been seen in public.

The 44-year-old Home and Away actress made an effort to hide her identity while out on Thursday in Double Bay after losing her licence.

Kate wore a sweater and a pair of tights as part of her all-black outfit.

The radio personality accessorised her ensemble with a pair of black sneakers and an angled black cap that she donned in an effort to cover her face.


Kate brought her stylish carry-all, a white shopping bag, her phone, and other essentials on the expedition.

Ritchie failed the random breath test on August 22 after being pulled over by police in her blue Subaru station waggon.

She was detained right away and escorted to the Maroubra Police Station where she underwent a secondary breath test. The result showed a positive reading of 0.06, which is just a little bit over the permitted limit of 0.05.

Ritchie received an immediate $600 fine and a three-month driving ban.


Since then, Kate has expressed regret for her behaviour and claimed she made a “bad judgement.”

“Recently, I took a breathalyser test at random. The test proved positive, despite the low amount, according to the post.

“I made a bad choice, and I am aware of how severe my acts are,” the speaker said. I sincerely apologise.

On Monday at 2:45 p.m. on Heffron Rd in Pagewood, police pulled over the former child star of Home and Away for a random breath test.


‘She was handed an infringement notice for the offence of Drive with Low Range Prescribed Concentration of Alcohol and issued a Licence Suspension Notice,’ a police spokesman told Daily Mail Australia.

Stuart Webb, her ex-husband and a former rugby league star, was busted for drunk driving five times between 2012 and 2019, the year they divorced.

Ritchie’s driving infraction occurs right before her upcoming return to television as a judge on Australia’s Got Talent.

Along with Shane Jacobson, Alesha Dixon, and David Walliams, she will be a guest on the programme.

Later this year, Channel Seven will host the TV talent competition, which will air after a three-year absence.
