Radio star Kate Ritchie has been arrested and banned for drink driving on the eve of her TV comeback as a judge on Australia’s Got Talent


Following a police stop in Sydney on Monday, radio personality Kate Ritchie was taken into custody for DUI.

Police in Paigewood stopped the host of Nova FM and former child star of Home and Away, and she gave a positive breath test.

Ritchie, 44, was later penalised and had her licence suspended, according to Seven News.

She is set to make her broadcast comeback as a judge on Australia’s Got Talent when she receives the driving ban.


Three days before to her detention, she was observed performing errands in Sydney while dressed casually fashionable.

In addition to carrying a take-out coffee, Ritchie was holding two punnets of raspberries, her iPhone, and a folded piece of paper.


Kate was warmly attired in a white sweatshirt layered beneath a chic Hunter raincoat, which costs about $300.

She finished off her casual ensemble with a pair of ripped jeans and a pair of nearly $1,000 leopard-print Golden Goose sneakers.


The former Home and Away star wore a green New York Yankees baseball cap and carried a woven bag over one shoulder.

At Sydney’s Riverside Theatre last month, Kate worked with fellow AGT judges David Walliams, Alesha Dixon, and Shane Jacobson to film the show’s season finale.

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

Although a premiere date hasn’t been set, the show will probably begin airing when My Kitchen Rules wraps up.
