Australian singing legend Shannon Noll has left fans in tears by surprising a local woman who was closing her Bait & Tackle shop after 41 years.

Rude Jude has been a staple on the radio show after revealing that her little shop had a ‘naughty corner’ filled with items such as sex dolls and sex cards.

However, after she’s decided to shut up shop after 41 years, Will and Woody planned an episode from her shop, with Nollsie making a surprise appearance.


In a video posted to the show Instagram page, Rude Jude can be seen in tears as Shannon Noll played a rendition of The Beatles’ Hey Jude live from her shop.

Fans took to the comments section to commend Nollsie for his trip to Charleville.
