Harry, 28, was accompanied by his friend and fellow swimmer Michael Gunning, while Rebecca’s partner Andrew also joined them in the family home from Manchester.
Rebecca and Harry split in 2016 after 18 months of marriage.
The former couple have remained friends in spite of their separation and co-parent their daughter Summer.
Harry came out as bisexual during the lockdown in June.
The star admitted that he’d been “avoiding” the question about his sexuality “every day of his life so far”, but was finally ready to talk about it during a live Q&A session with fans.
He also said that being bisexual was not related to the end of his marriage to Becky.
Harry divulged at the time: “This is a question I’ve avoided everyday of my life so far, mainly because I strongly dislike labels despite not knowing a solution to avoid them.
“But if I had to answer I would people that I’ve always been bisexual #ahh.”
