Amazing Race couple back together after AVO drama

Amazing Race couple Ashley Ruscoe and Sidney Pierucci have gone from court to courtship in a matter of months, with sightings suggesting they have reignited their relationship after a very public fallout.

The two, who appeared on Channel 10's revamped adventure show last year but had broken up by the time it aired, have been spotted around Bondi several times in recent weeks, including out to dinner and watching the sunrise along the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk.

While the two have not been open about their relationship and are not following each other on social media, they have made no efforts to keep things under wraps.

They have also shared the exact same content on their separate accounts, including Ruscoe documenting her baking of a carrot cake, which he then uploaded a photo of.

Ruscoe told Sydney Confidential that it was true that the pair were spending time together again, but said they had not put a label on their relationship yet.

"We have been hanging out but not back together officially..." the Bondi local said.

Their reunion is surprising considering the ugly circumstances surrounding their break up, which saw Pierucci slapped with an AVO.

"Police have charged a 27-year-old man following a domestic-related incident at Bellevue Hill," a police statement read.

"About 3am on Monday, 14 October 2019, police spoke to a woman in Birriga Street regarding an alleged domestic altercation. A man was arrested nearby and taken to Waverley Police Station and charged with assault and destroy/damage property."

He pleaded guilty to a minor charge in court in February and no conviction was recorded.

Around this time, Ruscoe, who works in publicity at fashion label Camilla, told The Daily Telegraph the relationship was "definitely" over.

"We're definitely broken up. He moved out. We're still amicable but we're taking it day by day … I'm definitely back on the scene."
