In a trailer for the upcoming reality TV series which sees celebrities face a range of business-themed challenges to win a cash prize for their chosen charity, male model and Survivor star David confesses to the camera: “I’m hoping Michelle Bridges gets fired today.”

David is then seen getting fitness queen Michelle on side, telling her: “I’ve got your back in the board room, I want to make sure you go through.”

But in classic David style, the trailer shows the moment he throws his co-star under the bus during a boardroom meeting with CEO Lord Alan Sugar. 

“I didn’t feel like I got any direction from Michelle at all,” he states, as Michelle looks on angrily.

“He’s playing a game, he will win at all costs,” a voiceover adds.

Even host Lord Alan Sugar remarks: “You’re very smooth, but then again so are a lot of snakes.”

Michelle shared the clip of David’s betrayal to her own Instagram Stories and did not hold back.

“His t-shirt?! ‘Be Strong Today’! A strong what?! A strong back-stabber,” the former Biggest Loser trainer captioned the clip, along with a face palm emoji and a crying with laughter emoji.

The Survivor star couldn’t resist commenting on Michelle’s post and penned: “It’s like a motivational message to get through these troubled times.”

When David shared the same clip to his own Instagram channel, captioning it, “Same sneak, different week”, Michelle shared her own reply.

“Said like a pooncey skivvy wearing, ghd hair loving, stab in the back kinda wanna be survivor…😉 you know I love ya babe! Once I’ve kneed you in the balls, all will be forgiven!”

“Haha yes I love it so much,” laughed Felicity ‘Flick’ Egginton.

“Bahahaha. Oh dear Michelle. Did you not watch Survivor?” question Lee Carseldine.
