However, when the 10th season of The Biggest Loser failed to gain ratings, Channel Ten realized they needed to completely overhaul the show.
The revamped format is now titled The Biggest Loser: Transformed, and, according to reports, Michelle and her partner Steve, 40, ‘opted not to take part in the latest season’.
But the TV insider says there’s more to the story.
‘There was a pretty long-running feud between Michelle and the other trainers,’ the source explained.
‘It was always her and Steve versus them. They ganged up on everyone and helped each other’s teams.’
This season, Shannan Ponton has returned to the show, along with Bondi-based trainer Libby Babet.
