Bec Hewitt was all smiles for the cameras on the blue carpet at this year's Oaks Day.

But it seems that behind the scenes, she may have not had the best time.

On Monday Woman's Day reported the 34-year-old was looking "visibly distressed" while attending Ladies Day at the Flemington Racecourse.

"Bec was acting very erratically," an onlooker told the magazine, adding she "seemed distressed."

According to the publication, the former Home and Away star was reportedly "doing her best to contain her emotions" but "a friend had to step in to console her".

Bec was flying solo at the event as husband Lleyton Hewitt was not in attendance.

However, the couple were seen looking loved-up together at the Melbourne Cup just a few days before.

Back in September the couple strenuously denied reports they may split, calling the claims “a complete fabrication".

They tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at the Sydney Opera House back in 2005.

The 36-year-old retired tennis star has recently been spending time abroad for work, while Bec has been in Melbourne with their three children Mia, 11, Cruz, eight, and six-year-old Ava.
