Hayley, 32, looked emotional as she left the Skye Suites apartment complex in Sydney’s CBD on Monday, October 14.
She was flanked by two female producers and ushered into a vehicle in the underground parking lot, before driving off to film a dinner party.
It’s believed she was being kept away from the main lobby, where she may have encountered other cast members.
Unsurprisingly, David was nowhere to be seen.

According to an onlooker, they started arguing in the lobby before things spilled out onto the street and Michael walked off alone.
‘They shared a few tense words and then Michael left her, stomped around the block a few times and made a heated phone call,’ the eyewitness said.

Michael confirmed on Monday that he and Hayley had kissed each other in Vanessa Romito and Chris Nicholls’ apartment after a night of heavy drinking.
‘We were all joking and having a laugh. We were mucking around with the phone and were like, “Oh, how funny would it be if this got out?”‘ he told TV Week, adding that the kiss was caught on camera.
‘We were fully clothed, just being stupid, being loose, having fun, not really understanding the implications of what rumours can do to your life.’
