Kate Ritchie returned to Instagram for the first time since her recent drink-driving charge to share a sweet Father’s Day tribute. The Australia’s Got Talent judge,44, uploaded a sweet photo of her father Steve cuddling her daughter Mae Webb on the couch on Sunday.

‘This says it all Dad. Happy Father’s Day Pa. We love you xx #fathersday #family #love,’ Kate captioned the sweet image. She chose not to share a post referencing Mae’s father Stuart Webb, with whom Kate split in acrimonious circumstances three years ago. 

Sunday’s post comes after Kate’s lucrative partnership with a major skincare company appears to have been quietly wrapped up in the wake of the star’s recent drink-driving charge.

The Nova drive host, who signed up with QV Skincare as a brand ambassador back in 2016, has been removed from the company’s promotional campaigns both online and across social media platforms.

And there’s no sign of the former Home and Away star on the official QV Skincare Instagram account which dates back to 2017. Meanwhile, Ritchie has deleted any reference to the brand from her own social media accounts.

The apparent parting of ways comes just several days week after Ritchie was busted for drink driving by police in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs.

The Nova personality blew over after she was stopped by police in her blue Subaru station wagon for a random breath test on August 22. She was immediately arrested and taken to Maroubra Police Station, where she underwent a secondary breath analysis which returned a positive reading of 0.06, just a shade over the legal limit of 0.05.

Ritchie is understood to have been fined $600 on the spot and suspended from driving for three months. She later shared a post to Instagram, apologising for her actions and said she made a ‘poor decision’.
