‘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.’ 

Police confirmed the incident in a statement to The Daily Telegraph: ‘A 49-year-old woman, driving a Range Rover SUV, was subjected to a roadside breath test which returned a positive result. A 5-year-old passenger was in the car at the time.’

After being arrested, Michelle was taken to Waverley Police Station, where she returned a reading of 0.086.
