The publication claims Anna and her new beau recently enjoying a getaway to Greece. 

They reportedly posted several loved-up images from their travels around the Greek islands.

Many of the photos were ‘liked’ by WAGs including Nadia Bartel and Candice Warner.

Both Anna and Tim have since switched their profiles to private.  

Peter has been open about his past struggles with alcohol and the toll it took on his marriage. 

He courageously quit the booze and marked eight years of sobriety in 2020. 

The sports star said in his darkest days he would knock back between 25 and 30 drinks.

In an emotional interview on podcast Ordineroli Speaking in 2020, the fast bowler said of his past partying days: ‘I was partying too hard, and it was getting out of control. 

‘All my relationships that were real close to me, I was just in a way lying to them all.’

Siddle labelled his actions ‘disgusting’ as he recalled his marathon drinking sessions.

'I was partying too hard, and it was getting out of control. All my relationships that were real close to me, I was just in a way lying to them all,' he told podcast Ordineroli Speaking

He went on to say it was his relationship with his partner Anna that forced him to come to grips with his drinking issues before he lost everything.  

‘I’d got myself in some bad situations that could’ve cost myself a relationship with my now wife,’ he said.

‘She comes home to my place with someone else in the room with me, I don’t remember much because I was in the state I was in pretty much every weekend.

‘We needed to talk and that was when I broke down. Yes, I’d f***ed up, but I knew that I wanted her to be in my life.’  

Siddle said he then made it his mission to keep her in his life by making some drastic changes to his drinking habits.

‘I begged her to death, but also I knew things had to change then.

Siddle said his struggles with alcohol began during his early days playing Test cricket for Australia that saw him live a ‘double life’.

‘Young man, on good money, money I’d never thought I’d be able to earn and just pretty much pi**ing it up against a wall to an extent,’ Siddle said, previously.

The cricketer said if he hadn’t made the decision to swear himself off alcohol he would have been ‘sacked from cricket before I got to 30’.
