Ajay – whose son, Kai, has Asperger syndrome – then spoke generally about parenthood, saying that when you have children ‘it’s no longer about us’.

‘The times I’ve sent myself home or stopped at three knowing that, god forbid, I need a midnight dash to the ER then I can do it,’ she added.

‘If you have millions of dollars and can afford a driver but choose to endanger the life of your child, then you are exactly the person I know you to be.’

Ajay then urged all parents to never drink and drive.

‘Parents: we don’t need to be perfect but we do need to think what could happen if… do not drink and drive ever, least of all with kids in the car,’ she wrote.

She was allegedly caught over the limit with her son, Axel, in the car on New South Head Road, in the Sydney suburb of Bellevue Hill, about 11.25am on Sunday.

While describing her actions as ‘inexcusable’, she revealed in the wake of her arrest that she has been dealing with ’emotional turmoil’ following her split from long-term partner Steve ‘Commando’ Willis, whom she met on The Biggest Loser.

‘I would like to express my deep regret for breaking the law, this was a terrible mistake and an error of judgment,’ she told The Daily Telegraph.

‘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.’ 

Ajay and Michelle,.who were colleagues on The Biggest Loser between 2006 and 2009, have been locked in a feud for 13 years. 

While a contestant on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! last year, Ajay told Woman’s Day she would ‘stab herself with a fork’ if Michelle joined her in the jungle.  

She had previously accused the fitness guru in 2015 of ‘leaking bulls**t to the media’ about her.

Their rivalry escalated the following year when Michelle controversially claimed she had ‘yet to meet someone who is morbidly obese and happy’.

Ajay responded by posting a photo to Instagram of her bare bottom and inviting Michelle to ‘kiss my fat happy a**!’

In an interview with 2DayFM around this time, she also claimed that Michelle had been difficult to work with on The Biggest Loser. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Ajay and Michelle for comment.
