She’s moving from Sydney to Melbourne for her new radio gig.

Sharing a sweet and emotional video to Instagram, Yvie said: ‘So as most of you know, I’m moving to Melbourne and I won’t be living in Sydney anymore which means I won’t be living with this guy anymore.’  

Tom also appears in the clip and said he will visit Yvie in Melbourne. 

He also sweetly shared his excitement at going in the pool with his new carer.

‘Tom has a new carer called Jo… she’s a very nice lady… tomorrow they’re going in the pool,’ Yvie added. 

She captioned the Instagram post: ‘To everyone asking about Tom! I’ve been living with Tom for eight years but unfortunately he won’t be moving to Melbourne with me. I’ll keep you updated. Still a few days before I leave x.’

Yvie is moving to Melbourne to be Fifi Box’s replacement while she’s on maternity leave, with the announcement being made last month.

Yvie will join Fox FM Breakfast this month, after mid-survey radio break. 

In 2017, Yvie spoke about her bond with Tom and how they came to live together with Angie Kent, who will appear on The Bachelorette in coming months. 

‘I had a crazy friend who was getting his masters at Sydney University and he saw an ad on the uni accommodation page offering free rent to two people who would live with a man with down syndrome as carers but act as just ‘housemates’ to him,’ Yvie told So The Fairy Tales Lied

‘The set-up is so Tom can live independently, as he’d never survive a group home. He also has type 1 diabetes, which requires 24 hour care,’ she said.

She said that Tom was like a ‘brother’ to her and soon convinced Angie to move in with them, after their other housemate left. 

She added: ‘It was pretty hard on her; it’s a hard situation. But she’s done so well and I absolutely love living with her, she keeps me sane and our relationship is incredible.’
