She’s the Channel Nine presenter known for her dancing videos on TikTok. And Belinda Russell showed off her favourite party trick on Tuesday in a viral clip recorded at Nine’s swanky Sydney headquarters.
‘My girls told me to try this trend, so thought I’d give it a go when I had a spare minute at work last night,’ Belinda captioned the video. ‘Really wasn’t sure I’d be able to do it but I love a challenge. Here’s to staying young at heart and not putting limits on ourselves due to age.’
The mother of three, 44, showed off her flexibility as she took part in a social media challenge that involved performing the upside-down splits. Making her feat all the more impressive, Belinda did the splits wearing a pair of red high heels.
Belinda’s celebrity friends praised her efforts in the comments section. ‘Flexi!’ wrote entertainment reporter Renee Bargh, while former foreign minister Julie Bishop posted clapping emojis.
Her clips have been viewed around the world, and famously once caught the attention of retired baseball player Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez. Her TikTok videos have been ‘liked’ more than 5.1 million times.
‘OMG!!! Ha!! Wow,’ Delta Goodrem wrote. Grant Denyer added: ‘This is WILD! Wow.’ Belinda, who is married to television executive Mark Calvert, was last year dubbed the ‘Queen of TikTok’ thanks to her viral dance videos.
