‘Quarantine hasn’t been too bad!’ Kyly Clarke FINALLY goes Instagram official with Supercars racer James Courtney as the pair share loved-up photo together on holiday in Byron Bay
Kyly Clarke and Supercars racer James Courtney have finally gone Instagram official, after rumours of their romance swirled for weeks.
The ex-wife of cricketer Michael Clark, 39, shared a sweet picture of herself cuddled up to her new beau, 40, as they holidayed together with pals in Byron Bay.
While she only captioned the photo with a winking face, James posted something with a little more meaning – writing: ‘Quarantine hasn’t been too bad!’

In the sun-kissed image, the pair were all smiles as Kyly sweetly leaned her head against her man while enjoying a hike in the great outdoors.
Kyly had first been pictured with James at the Bathurst 1000 weeks ago – a year after her split with Michael in September 2019.
‘It is early days but they are very happy,’ a source told The Daily Telegraph at the time.
‘Kyly loves motorsports; it is something she has been passionate about since childhood. They just clicked.’
Smitten! Kyly debuted her new romance at the Bathurst 1000, where James Courtney was racing. She was pictured cosying up to him and beaming in his company at the race track. Pictured at the Bathurst 1000 on Sunday, October 18

She’s believed to have first met James when she was just 11, and they recently got back in contact via social media.
Meanwhile, Kyly’s ex Michael, 39, is now in a relationship with activewear designer Pip Edwards, 40.
While the exes continue on their separate ways with new partners, they have been far from subtle on social media with competitive posts about their new lives and lovers.
Just hours after Kyly shared her snap with her beau, Pip shared a similar loved-up shot as she cuddled up to her other half at a dinner table.
She and Michael were romantically linked just days after Michael and Kyly announced split back in February.
They confirmed their relationship in July, when they were spotted enjoying a romantic vacation in Noosa.
Vacation: The new couple are currently holidaying together in Byron Bay. Until Saturday, they had only each shared photos of their trip without being pictured together

First public event: Michael has also shared images of his life with new love, Pip Edwards, on social media. They recently attended their first official outing together at the Everest Cup Racing Carnival, where they looked very smitten. Pictured left is Michael and Pip with friends
Since then, the couple have each been brazenly sharing their loved up photos of themselves across their social media profiles.
Michael is notoriously private, and while he’s usually hesitant to provide details about his new life with Pip, he did recently say he couldn’t be happier.
‘In regards to me personally? I’m so happy right now,’ he told Stellar magazine. ‘I’m in a great place. That’s all I can ask for.’
In April, Kyly said she was still on good terms with her former partner, who she shares four-year-old daughter Kelsey Lee with.
