The newly single fitness gurus have become inseparable – both on and off set.
They both announced the end of long-term relationships within weeks of one another, and now insiders say old friends Michelle Bridges and Steve “The Commando” Willis are following their hearts and pursuing a relationship.
Just weeks after Michelle admitted her marriage of nine years was over, Steve called it quits on his seven-year relationship with Froso, the mother of two of his three children.
They are said to be supporting each other through the turmoil in their personal lives, and this has seen their long-held affection for one another continue to grow. The Biggest Loser stars’ managers have refused to deny the pair are now together, despite repeated invitations from Woman’s Day to do so.
“They’re fiercely protective and don’t want to be disrespectful to their former partners, but the chemistry between them is electric,” says a former contestant. “This is no way at all a shock to contestants,” adds the source, who says Commando’s children, Brianna, 14, from a previous relationship, and Ella, 5, and Jack, 19 months, “are the main reason they’re keeping quiet”.
