Carrie Bickmore's ex responds to rumours she's dating Tommy Little
Fans have been saying Carrie and Tommy would be a 'perfect match'.
Carrie Bickmore's ex Chris Walker has seemingly responded to rumours she and her radio co-host Tommy Little are "growing close" after the pair announced their split in January.
Chris took to Instagram on Wednesday night to share a strange photo of Tommy posing in a family photo in 2018 while Carrie was pregnant with her third child Adelaide, who is now four.
In the tongue-in-cheek photo, Carrie's two older children, Ollie and Evie, stand in front of Carrie and Chris, whose hands are on Carrie's baby bump, with Tommy awkwardly standing behind him, holding his behind.
The photo was organised for Unicef Australia's Save a Newborn Appeal, with the photo being captioned at the time: "This is what happens when you let Tommy organize a beautiful photo shoot to celebrate Carrie's pregnancy."

Chris didn't caption the photo and swiftly deleted it just six hours later, however, it was caught by Instagram account Influencer Updates AU, who uploaded a screenshot with the caption, "Theories what this means?"
"OMG this makes me think she's seeing Tommy???!!!" one follower responded, with Influencer Updates AU saying it was "easily the top guess".
Chris may have been laughing off the rumours about Carrie and Tommy, who work together on their Hit Network radio show.
However, the Daily Mail described Tommy as Carrie's "shoulder to cry on" after the TV and radio host split from her partner of 11 years. Tommy is also single following his split from his girlfriend Natalie Kyriacou in 2021.
Tommy reportedly rushed to be by Carrie's side when she confirmed the split, leading some to believe they could end up being more than friends in the future.
Fans have been hoping the pair would get together with one person writing on Instagram, "Get a room already, you two."
"You guys make a lovely couple," another said.
"Carrie I am sorry for your breakup with Chris, but I have always thought that you and Tommy were a perfect match," a third said, with another agreeing they have "so much chemistry and love between them".
"Put the rumours to rest share the juicy gossip you know everyone wants to know," someone else pleaded with Carrie on a recent Instagram post.
'A tough time'
Carrie announced her split with Chris on Instagram in January, sharing a statement that read: "It's with immense sadness that Chris and I have decided to separate".
"While this is a tough time, our focus is on parenting, loving and supporting our three children Ollie, Evie and Addie with everything we've got. They are doing great."
The announcement came weeks after Carrie signed off from The Project after 13 years on the show.
