She also added: ‘And then, you know, the other stuff, don’t sweat it. Let stuff go. Drop baggage if you need to, especially if it’s holding you back. Look for the fun.’

Michelle’s life advice comes after a challenging past year, where she received a drink driving charge and split from partner Steve ‘Commando’ Willis in December 2019.
Michelle blew 0.086 when she was pulled over in her Range Rover with son Axel in the car about 11.25am on Australia Day in January 2020.
After she was charged on January 26, Michelle released a statement claiming she was going through a ‘very difficult time’ following her split from Steve, 43.
Michelle and Steve met while filming The Biggest Loser in 2007, at a time when they were both in relationships with other people.
They began dating in 2015, after splitting from their respective partners, and welcomed son Axel in December that year.
