At the Sunday premiere of Australia’s Got Talent, Kate Ritchie made her eagerly anticipated television debut.
The 43-year-old former Home and Away star shone on the star-studded panel, showcasing a softer side of herself.
The gentler side of the single mother was on display when she became a little upset while seeing an act featuring dads and their daughters.
As the little ladies, ages two to six, got ready to perform on stage wearing ballet tutus and crowns, Kate talked to them.
Kate said, “Hello gals, welcome to the stage.” “Are you all present?” You four are just getting started, right?
To the delight of the studio audience, the girls danced with their fathers as Kate was astounded.
The dancers frequently “leaned” on their fathers as they swirled and swayed to Mariah Carey’s timeless ballad, Hero.
The TV personality later expressed her admiration for the group by thanking them for “filling our hearts,” noting, “That was really amazing.”
After the surprise, the children’s author made fun of the girls by saying, “You girls are really cheeky as you kept a very large secret.”
We weren’t anticipating so many dashing parents to be on stage. Being up there with your wonderful daughters must be lovely.
After confessing she was “nervous” about the role, Kate appeared serene and calm as she sat on the judging panel for the first time.
After getting arrested for low-range drunk driving in August, the celebrity has had a turbulent recent period.
In August, at 2.45 pm on Heffron Rd in Pagewood, Kate’s blue Subaru station wagon was pulled up by police for an arbitrary breath test.
Ritchie tested positive by the side of the road, was detained right away, and was taken to Maroubra Police Station to submit to a subsequent breath test.
She gave a positive reading of 0.06, just a little bit above than the 0.05 permitted limit.
She eventually issued a formal apology, is believed to have been immediately fined $600, and had her license revoked for three months.
Previously married to retired NRL player Stuart Webb, the former soap opera star has an eight-year-old daughter named Mae.
