He added to the imposing look a pair of lace-up military-style boots.

Inside the venue, Michael contrasted his neutral appearance against the attire of more formally-dressed reality star Nathan Joliffe. 

Nathan’s eclectic outfit was punctuated by a pink sweatshirt, a cream jacket and grey suit pants. 

And once in front of the audience, Michael continued his steely gaze while choosing to close his jacket at the neck.

The ex-Olympian’s appearance comes after Lindy revealed on Tuesday she has finally made amends with Michael for the sake of their three children. 

The pair split on bad terms after almost a decade of marriage in 2016. 

The Balinese princess, 41, said the former couple keep in touch via text message and even meet up for dinner.

Lindy said on The Morning Show: ‘We’ve actually got to a really good space at the moment.

‘We have a group WhatsApp [in which] we work out a lot of the co-parenting issues. 

‘Sometimes I will text Michael and say, “Oh God, Stella [their daughter] has just asked for a double piercing. Firstly, where’s that going to be, and secondly what do we do about this?”
