This cast of this year’s Australian Survivor sure are a mixed bunch – from a firefighter to a criminal lawyer, to David Beckham’s former personal trainer Tegan Haining.

Yep, the 33-year-old personal trainer/model reportedly trained Becks between 2012 and 2015 in London (lucky girl!), as well as training and working alongside Natalie Imbruglia and model Jessica Gomes.

What’s more, she’s also published a Clean and Lean cookbook, AND before graduating from Fitness Australia in 2008, she modelled for Nivea, Schwarzkopf, Berlei and Megan Gale’s swimwear line, Isola.


Tegan found herself making headlines in 2013 when her boyfriend, Sydney nightlife entrepreneur James Miller, died of an accidental overdose.

“It made me cherish my own life and relationships much more. I became more personable and a better communicator. I really felt like my life, as I knew it had ended. I had to rebuild myself and my life went in a completely different direction,” she reveals.

With her likeable personality and background in fitness, Tegan will be one to watch!

Survivor Australia starts this Sunday, August 21 at 7.30pm on Channel 10.
