The former My Kitchen Rules judge took to Instagram earlier this week to post a meme that featured neo-Nazi symbolism – a move which had many up in arms.

On Tuesday, publishing house Pan Macmillian announced that they were “finalising” their contractual relationship with the star, while Network 10 confirmed he will no longer be appearing on the upcoming season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Meanwhile, Nicola, a former glamour model, has maintained her silence on the matter, refraining from posting on social media since the news broke. 

The last time Pete appeared on her Instagram account was back in August when she shared a snap of him patting a horse on their family property in northern New South Wales. The 42-year-old is notoriously private and largely shies away from the spotlight.

Earlier this year, the couple were plagued by split rumours after fans noticed they had quietly “unfollowed” each other. However, when asked to weigh in, the health-conscious cook slammed speculation that they had parted ways.

“No, not at all,” he said. “We just had a wonderful week together at the farm with the kids. She is having a break from Instagram at this time.”

Nicola and Pete met in 2011 and got engaged under New York’s Manhattan Bridge in 2014. It’s believed the 40-year-old wellness blogger introduced Pete to the Paleo diet.

In 2015, the couple traded their Bondi home for a life in rural NSW, purchasing a 10 hectare farm for $1.2 million.

The wed married in 2016, in a private barefoot ceremony at their rural retreat. Just a handful of guests including Pete’s daughters, Chilli, 14 and Indii, 12, were in attendance.

Both Pete and Nicola have previously been married.

In 2011, Pete split from his partner of 11 years, Astrid Edlinger, with whom he shares his children. Nicola was married to millionaire Warriors league club owner, Eric Watson. She has also been linked to Sydney nightclub boss Justin Hemmes and ex-All Blacks star Matthew Ridge.
