According to an onlooker, Richard, 62, was “looking bored” as he sat outside a Macleay Street cafe but immediately perked up when he spotted Sara and her pal walking past.

The duo stopped to have a friendly chat with Richard, who gave Sara, 29, a big hug at one point.

While Richard has denied reports that he’s been on the prowl since he and his MAFS bride Andrea left the show, his preference for younger women is common knowledge.
