The Nova radio host has had a tumultuous few months after her husband, Stuart Webb, faced court over drink driving, and an AVO was issued on her behalf.

The mother of one, who shares daughter Mae, 5, with former NRL star Stuart, 39, has stayed tight-lipped about her disastrous end to 2019. But in a shock admission while on The Morning Show, Kate said it can be uncomfortable to speak about her personal life on air.

“I guess in some ways it is daunting,” Kate said. “My life is pretty unglamorous and it’s pretty mundane. But it’s also pretty wonderful! I think if I was doing breakfast radio, I think that’s when you really need to share.”

Kate’s marriage has been surrounded by controversy since the NSW police reportedly took an AVO out on her behalf against Stuart last year.

Since then, Stuart has reportedly begged his wife of nine years for another chance before the pair jetted off to Fiji with family in January.

“My wife pointed it out and we were both surprised,” a fellow traveller claimed to New Idea at the time.

“There were other family members on the trip. Someone escorted them around almost the whole time, it was like they didn’t want to leave them alone for long,” the traveller said.
