After their very public pash, the duo, who showed off their fit physiques, were seen taking a walk on the sand, before the father-of-two took a dip. “Stevie was clearly having a great day. He was smiling non-stop,” says an onlooker. Stevie, 54, is certainly no stranger to PDA. In January, he and his rumoured girlfriend, Amanda King, were snapped making out in a Bondi restaurant during his birthday party. The pair were seen locking lips inside the venue, before Amanda…

The 50-year-old added that she was thankful both she and Allegra emerged from the wreckage “absolutely fine, safe and sound”, before praising a quick-thinking school bus driver, who pulled over and warned them…
