The family are believed to be staying at a mansion in Tamarama, in the city’s eastern suburbs. 

They had spent their two-week mandatory quarantine at the Meriton Suites, in Sydney’s CBD. 

Last week, Channel Seven revealed the network would not film Australia’s Got Talent due to the escalating Covid-19 crisis.

‘Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in Sydney, we have decided to postpone production of the new season of AGT to a date to be determined,’ Seven said.  

‘A studio audience is a vitally important part of this much-loved show, so we have made the responsible but tough call to not go ahead for now.’

AGT was due to begin shooting last week at Rooty Hill RSL in Sydney, but filming was postponed due to the escalating Covid-19 situation.
