It comes after Steve revealed he was finally lucky enough to witness Bondi’s wild fox for the very first time, after hearing rumours of the ‘sly little character’ for ages. 

On Instagram, Steve shared footage of the crafty fox rapidly dashing through the popular eastern suburb before quickly disappearing under a car.  

‘Finally spotted the Bondi Fox last night,’ Steve wrote alongside the video. ‘Been hearing rumours about this sly little character for years.’

While foxes are more of a rural inhabitant, they do often thrive in urban areas.

They are often thought of as pests and are notorious for eating small animals – especially chickens in backyards.  

Meanwhile, Steve parted ways with Channel Nine in 2019 after being replaced as the Today show’s weather presenter by Tim Davies.

He had been a fixture of the program on and off since 2005, and had spent much of 2019 as an in-studio weatherman.

While his exit came amid a staff reshuffle, Steve insisted it was his decision to leave.

Taking to Instagram after the news broke, he claimed the real reason he was leaving was to spend more time with his daughters.

‘Sadly I can’t commit to future travel requirements of the job and have to put my beautiful daughters first… They are my world, my life, my joy,’ he wrote.

Steve shares daughters Isabella, nine, and Francesca, seven, with his ex-wife Rose Jacobs, whom he split from in 2018. 

Moving on: Steve was previously married to TV presenter Rose Jacobs (pictured), who is the mother of his two daughters, Isabella, eight, and Francesca, six, but they separated in 2017
