By AAP Newswire

Television personality and personal trainer Michelle Bridges will face a Sydney court next month after being charged with mid-range drink driving.

Bridges on Sunday morning was pulled over in a Range Rover SUV for a roadside breath test on New South Head Road in Bellevue Hill.

She allegedly returned a positive result and was taken to Waverley Police Station, where she returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.086.

A five-year-old child was allegedly in the vehicle at the time of the test.

The Potts Point-based Bridges was charged with mid-range drink driving and bailed to appear before Waverley Local Court on February 18.

The 49-year-old Bridges was a personal trainer on TV show The Biggest Loser until 2015.

Her website states she is also the author of 16 health books, a magazine columnist and activewear entrepreneur.

Bridges' agent has been contacted for comment.
