Our Producer said “Have more fun” after we played Breakfasts’ Child on the 6pm news. Is this what you meant?

"Sometimes you need to have a laugh right? The 6pm Red team trying to replicate our Breakfast gang's dance moves," Petrie wrote alongside the video on Instagram.

And fans were loving their moves!

Flocking to the comments section, viewers praised Petrie and Wright including Breakfast presenter Matt McLean who commented: "Oh my God you guys are AMAZING! xx."

TVNZ's presenters are currently split into two alternating teams while Auckland's Covid 19 alert levels are at three and four.

Petrie co-anchored TVNZ's 1 News 6pm bulletin with Simon Dallow for 14 years - when she took over from Judy Bailey in 2006 - but her position was made redundant last year when the broadcaster restructured.

Since then she has regularly returned to screens as a presenter across TVNZ's shows.
