A crying Michelle Bridges has apologised in a Sydney court for her "gross error in judgement" after the television personality and personal trainer was caught drink-driving with a child in the back seat.
The 49-year-old fitness guru blew 0.089 after being stopped for a random breath test on New South Head Road in Bellevue Hill on Australia Day.
Magistrate Allison Hawkins on Tuesday convicted Bridges, handed her a $750 fine and accepted the incident was "humiliating" for the former reality TV star.
"I would like to apologise to my family, my friends and my community for this gross error in judgment," Bridges told reporters outside Waverley Local Court.
Bridges, who was a personal trainer on TV show The Biggest Loser until 2015, has also authored books and magazine columns and has an activewear line.
