Michelle looked under strain as the news spread, with the star appearing to weep as she stared out a Sydney window. The ex TV fixture, who has issued a statement calling the alleged drink driving incident ‘an error in judgement’, is understood to be overwhelmed with her recent troubles.   

‘Michelle did not look happy at all,’ says an onlooker. ‘She seemed to be struggling to get her composure.’

The star has been frank about her feelings since the drama came to public notice.

‘I would like to express my deep regret for breaking the law, this was a terrible mistake and an error of judgment,’ she said in a statement.

‘This behaviour is inexcusable, and I am absolutely devastated and embarrassed to find myself in this position. It has been a very difficult time for me the last few weeks dealing with the break-up of my long-term relationship.

‘This is by no means an excuse for my behaviour but I feel the emotional turmoil I have been going through has impacted my decision making. I am extremely sorry for my actions.’

The Biggest Loser star has a five-year-old son, Axel, with Willis.

The ultra-fit couple were first publicly together in 2013. Directly before their coupling the pair were both in other relationships.

Steve was with partner Froso, with whom he has two young chlidren and Michelle was married to her long-time love, Bill Moore.

The reasons for Michelle and The Commando’s split are currently unconfirmed.

She has been given a future court attendance notice for mid-range PCA and is due to appear at Waverley Local Court on February 18.
