Having moved to the tropical paradise to work on their strained relationship, things went from bad to worse for the TV presenters when their seven-year marriage broke down and Rose started dating former Canadian marine Dylan Nash.
Now, just months after they confirmed their split, the couple are determined to ‘start over’, listing their luxury villa for rent on Airbnb, as they prepare to return to their old haunts with happier memories.
‘A lot has happened in such a short time,’ says the friend, ‘and Rose is still very much in love with Dylan, which is hard for Stevie to see.
He has been socialising a lot more and trying to get over it, but it is still painful.’
Close friends revealed the dedicated parents need more than a change of scenery to be able to move on, especially as Stevie and Dylan have unresolved issues.
‘Rose took a AVO out on Stevie in Vanuatu,’ says the friend.
‘There was an altercation at the gym with Dylan and that’s still before the court at the moment, so there are still a lot of things to work out between them all.’
