They have, however, appeared on the Instagram accounts of friends including Yvie Jones and Samuel Levi.
Chelsie’s ex, Matt, has kept a low profile in the media since their split in November 2019.
But in late November he revealed his reason for leaving the spotlight soon after announcing the end of the two-month romance.

He told the Herald Sun his silence was a calculated move on his part to help ‘put himself back together’ after the TV stint.
‘I did not come out of both the show and the relationship in great shape and I needed time with my close friends and family to pick myself up and put myself back together, really,’ he said.
‘It has certainly given me the opportunity to continue to talk about science to a broad audience which is something I am really passionate about.’
