Former Home and Away star Kate Ritchie has had her licence suspended after being charged with drink driving.

Kate Ritchie, a radio broadcaster and former star of Home and Away, has been charged with drunk driving and given a three-month driving penalty.

The 44-year-old Ms. Ritchie is accused by police of exceeding the speed limit on Monday afternoon in Sydney’s east suburb of Pagewood.

Just before 2.45 p.m., she was stopped for a random breath test in her blue Subaru station waggon, and according to police, she blew a positive result.

The famous person was then brought back to the Maroubra Police Station for another test, the results of which purportedly revealed she had a blood alcohol level of 0.06.

She received an infringement notice and had her driver’s licence suspended for the offence of operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol level below the legal limit.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Ms. Ritchie received an immediate $600 fine and a three-month driving prohibition.

During the years 1998 to 2008, Ms. Ritchie played Sally Fletcher in the television series Home and Away. She is currently a well-known radio personality at Nova FM.

The driving ban was imposed just before she was scheduled to appear on television as a judge on Australia’s Got Talent.

Although the reality show has apparently wrapped up filming, a release date is still pending.

Ms. Ritchie has been making sporadic appearances on her radio broadcasts lately, as well as taking a few breaks.

Her recent absence was attributed to a case of Covid-19.

Stuart Webb, a retired rugby league player, and Ms. Ritchie divorced in 2019.

The TV star was rumoured to have broken up with security consultant John Bell, 25, at the end of the previous year, which caused headlines.

In 2021, Ms. Ritchie also made headlines for revealing in a tearful interview on an ABC programme.

“It was really terrifying. When no one hands me a schedule on a Friday afternoon or tells me where to be on a Monday, what do I actually do? At the moment, she said.
