She had just finished a Q&A session with designer Alex Perry at Carriageworks when she spoke briefly about Michael and Kyly’s reconciliation outside the venue.

Pip said she was feeling ‘great’ and looking forward to her activewear label being featured on the Fashion Week runway on Friday.

When the conversation turned to the Clarkes, she smiled and said ‘I wish them well’ before making a quick exit with her entourage.

Pip looked stylish for day three of Fashion Week in head-to-toe P.E Nation, including red tracksuit pants and a matching puffer jacket.

She rocked an animal-print tank top and Nike hi-top sneakers, and drew attention to her naturally youthful features by wearing minimal makeup.

Coincidentally, Kyly also attended Fashion Week on Wednesday, but she was at another runway show in a different part of Sydney.

The former House Rules judge, 39, joined the likes of Delta Goodrem and Erin Holland at the We Are Kindred collection in Elizabeth Bay.

Michael and Kyly Clarke split in September 2019 after seven years of marriage, but didn’t reveal their break-up until February 12, 2020.

In an statement at the time, the Clarkes said the ‘amicable’ decision to separate was ‘the best course’ for their five-year-old daughter, Kelsey Lee.

Shortly after ending his marriage, 40-year-old Michael began dating Pip, with whom he’d been friends for more than a decade.

Meanwhile, Kyly enjoyed a fling with V8 Supercars champion James Courtney.

However, these relationships didn’t last: Michael and Pip called it quits in February after dating for about seven months, while Kyly and James broke up in December.

Rumours of a reconciliation surfaced on Monday after Daily Mail Australia published photos of the Clarkes on a romantic weekend away in Palm Beach.

They spent two nights at a $13million mansion owned by former Crown Resorts chairman Rob Rankin, which costs $2,400 per night to rent.

An onlooker who saw the couple at a nearby shopping precinct with their daughter said they were ‘quite affectionate’.

They added: ‘I’m convinced they’re back together. We’re talking very much an item, not just friendly exes.’

In the days since the photos were published, the Clarkes haven’t denied they are back together after being separated for almost two years.

However, it seems Michael’s ex Pip has now done the job for them.
