Sunrise star praised for 'hilarious' Kath & Kim impression: 'Nailed it'

Sunrise star Monique Wright has been praised on social media for her ‘spot-on’ impression of Kath Day-Knight from Kath & Kim.

In a video posted to the breakfast program’s Instagram account this week, the TV presenter is shown recreating some of Kath’s iconic moves on the dance floor.

Monique throws her pink purse off-camera before energetically performing a number of unique steps originated by Kath, who is played by comedian Jane Turner.

The clip also uses audio from Kath & Kim’s memorable appearance at the 2004 Logie Awards where they sang ‘Lady Bump’ by Penny McLean.


A number of followers were quick to take to the comments to praise Monique’s efforts, including Sonia Kruger who said her moves were “10/10”.

“Nailed it,” one fan shared, followed by another who added, “This has made my day!”.

“This is why we love you Monique,” a third remarked, with someone else writing, “Mon, you are the best on Sunrise. You take it to a whole new level”.

“This makes me proud we named our daughter Monique,” a different user laughed, while another joked that she should go on Dancing With The Stars.

Kath & Kim reunion

The video, which has already racked up over 80,000 views, was created to help promote Channel Seven’s upcoming TV special, Kath & Kim: Out Effluent Life.

It was announced last month that the iconic Australian series would return for a two-part television event, which will include both new and retrospective footage.


“Foxy lady Kath Day-Knight and hornbag daughter Kim Craig (nee Day) will mark their 20th anniversary across two ‘yuge’ nights, joined by hunk-of-spunk Kel Knight, pants man Brett Craig, Kim’s second-best friend Sharon Strzelecki, and the very greyyyssshhh… Prue and Trude,” the network wrote on social media.

Kath & Kim: Our Effluent Life will air November 20 and November 21 on Channel Seven.
