It is understood that Ritchie wrote a letter of support for her husband, despite her AVO against her husband recently being extended for 12 months following an incident at their Randwick home.

The 39-year-old was caught drunk behind the wheel at Randwick after blowing an alcohol reading of 0.08.

Webb was first issued a drink driving charge in 2004, and what followed was a a string of offences between 2012 and 2019.
