Bec and Lleyton Hewitt temporarily relocated from Melbourne to Sydney last year when the former Home and Away actress appeared on Dancing With The Stars.

According to sources, the home is currently vacant, and Bec, Lleyton and their children Mia, 15, Cruz, 12, and Ava, 10, have not been seen there for some time.

The publication also reports that while Bec was filming Dancing With The Stars in Sydney last year she inspected a multimillion mansion in Manly in preparation for the big move.

Insiders close to the Hewitt clan believe the former soap star is set to make her big showbiz comeback after enjoying her time in the spotlight on DWTS last year.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out for comment.  

During her appearance on the reality competition, Bec, who played Hayley Smith Lawson on Home and Away from 1998 to 2005, said she wanted to return to her old profession.

Bec, who stepped away from the spotlight after marrying tennis star Lleyton, told The Daily Telegraph: ‘I would love to do another acting job.’

‘I love working with creative people so we’ll see what happens,’ she added. 

Since quitting Home and Away at the height of her fame, Bec has focused on raising her and Lleyton’s three children after the couple married in 2005.

After their nuptials, they relocated with their children to island of Nassau in the Bahamas after purchasing a $3.8 million villa in the Old Fort Bay estate.

In 2016, the Hewitts permanently left the Bahamas and moved back to Melbourne, and a year later purchased their Toorak home in April 2017.

They then moved to Sydney temporarily last year for Bec’s DWTS appearance and to escape the COVID-19 lockdown in Melbourne.   

While the family were living in Sydney, their eldest daughter Mia enjoyed a part-time job at high-end fashion boutique Dior and the family appeared at their happiest as they settled into life in the big city.
