She’s in the throes of a new romance with her boyfriend Chevy Black following her shock rehab stint for alcohol dependency

And Kate Ritchie put on a loved-up display with her hunky new man at Clovelly Beach last week. 

The former Home and Away star, 44, who rose to fame playing Sally Fletcher on iconic the soap, flaunted her stunning curves in a black swimsuit for the dip.

The mother-of-one slipped into a high-cut one-piece, which featured a small V-neckline that complimented her bust.
