Australia’s favourite netball player Sharon Strzelecki has busted out her best moves to celebrate the nation’s healthcare workers in a uniquely enthusiastic iso song and dance routine.
Boogieing along to an adapted version of Soft Cell’s Tainted Love, Sharon is flanked by backup dancers from the Footscray Hospital, Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and Ambulance Victoria.
“Sometimes I feel I’ve got to run away. I’ve got to get away from the bugs you drive into the heart of me, the germs you share seem to go everywhere and I don’t think its noice because then I toss and turn and I can’t sleep at night,” she sings.

Sharon was made famous on iconic Australian comedy show Kath and Kim and is played by beloved comedian Magda Szubanski who uploaded the two minute video to her Instagram page this morning.
“Noice, strong, courageous. A special Sharon shout out to all our healthcare workers, on the frontline and behind the scenes,” she wrote.
“To paraphrase Sir Elton John: “I know it’s not much,but it’s the best I can do. My gift is my dance and… this one’s for you”
Wearing her netball uniform, Sharon made it clear she is not a fan of COVID-19.
“This covid bug you’ve given you even took my PP equipment, take your temperature and go and stand in the hall, covid bug
“Don’t touch me please, I’m so scared of the way you sneeze, I loved you though you hurt me so but I’m just going to take my thermometer and go.
“Don’t touch me baby, covid bug.”
It comes as Telethon and Seven West Media launched the #dancingtogether competition to help bring humour and fun back into the lives of West Australians living in a State under lockdown.
Families and individuals have been encouraged to submit their most creative videos showing them busting a move at home in isolation.
