Sunrise newsreader Edwina Bartholomew LOSES IT over woman crushing watermelons with her thighs 


Sunrise newsreader Edwina Bartholomew couldn’t contain her composure as she witnessed a woman’s bizarre talent on the morning breakfast show on Friday.  

She broke in a fit of laughter over a ‘feel good’ segment featuring Scotland’s former strongest woman Emmajane Smith and her world record attempt of crushing watermelons with her thighs on British TV.

Emmajane crushed three watermelons in less than 14.65 seconds, unfortunately for her there were no Guinness World Record officials to confirm her impressive time.

The newsreader, 37, was left in stitches at the bizarre sight as host Natalie Barr demanded: ‘We need that woman on!’

‘How do you get into that sport, like, how do you start out? Edwina asked as she wiped her tears, ‘With a rock melon and then move up?’

‘You start with apples early on, rotten ones,’ sports reader Mark Beretta joked. 

Co-host David ‘Kochie’ Koch then cheekily quipped: ‘Is she in a relationship? Just asking?’

Hilarious: The newsreader, 37, was left in stitches at the bizarre sight. 'How do you get into that sport, like, how do you start out? Edwina asked as she wiped her tears, 'With a rock melon and then move up?'

Natalie jumped in saying: ‘I love the way she cleans up in between,’ referencing Emmajane quickly wiping down her groin area after crushing a melon. 

‘You don’t want to lose your grip, do you?’ added Mark.

Earlier this month, Edwina was emotional as she urged viewers to help donate to a GoFundMe page for Grace Bridges, a two-year-old girl with Metastatic Hepatoblastoma, a cancer so rare that it only affects one-in-a-million children.

‘She’s not totally out of the woods, she will have ongoing blood tests until she is six years old… because of the chemo, 70 doses… [there’s] so many problems with hearing and brittle bones,’ Edwina – who recently became a mother – said.

The story hit close to home for Edwina, who last month described the terrifying moment her one-year-old daughter Molly was rushed to hospital.

In a column for The Daily Telegraph, she revealed Molly spent two nights in hospital after doctors found something concerning during a standard check-up.

‘For us, it was all new and mildly terrifying. We thought we were going in for a very quick check-up. We ended up staying all weekend,’ she wrote.

She was initially concerned it was something life-threatening.

‘I have done many stories in hospitals over the years, but it’s another thing entirely to be guiding your own child through a health hiccup,’ she said. 

‘This time I was the mum with the red eyes, sleeping on a fold-out chair and worrying about the outcome of an operation.’

Edwina’s husband Neil Varcoe heaped praise on Molly in an Instagram post at the time.

‘We discovered something new about you last weekend, Molly Matilda,’ he wrote.

‘While you are sunshine most of the time, you’ll fight like an alley cat if someone tries to hurt you. And that’s a good thing.’

Edwina and Neil welcomed their daughter Molly in December 2019.
