Michelle Bridges Confirms Split From Partner Steve ‘Commando’ Willis A Day After She was Allegedly Caught Drink Driving With Child In The Car!
Michelle Bridges has confirmed her split from partner Steve ‘Commando’ Willis just a day after allegedly being caught drink driving with her five year old in the car.
The 49 year old personal trainer on TV reality show The Biggest Loser tested positive in a random roadside breath test on New South Head Rd in Bellevue Hill at 11.25am on Sunday, police say. She was subsequently taken to Waverley Police Station, where she allegedly returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.086. “A five-year-old passenger was in the car at the time,” police said.
Since then, the trainer has issued a statement via her manager expressing her deep regret for the incident as well as revealing her split from long time partner and fellow Biggest Loser trainer Commando. “I would like to express my deep regret for breaking the law,” she said. “This behaviour is inexcusable, and I am absolutely devastated and embarrassed to find myself in this position.”
Bridges revealed that the last few weeks had been especially difficult since having to deal with “the break-up of my long-term relationship”. The statement confirmed her split from Willis, with whom she shares her son, Axel.

The couple met while working on the weight-loss reality TV show Biggest Loser in 2007 and began dating six years later.
“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,” Bridges said. “I am extremely sorry for my actions.”
