One little girl has stolen the spotlight from two of Channel 7's biggest stars.

The child, wearing a pink, purple and lilac dress, could be seen dancing up a storm between Sunrise co-hosts David 'Kochie' Koch and Natalie Barr during a live broadcast earlier this week.

A keen-eyed fan grabbed the clip, sending it viral on Tik-Tok.

The video of the girl dancing energetically while wearing cowboy boots was hilariously set to dance track Cotton Eye Joe by The Hit Crew.

Barr and Koch appeared to be completely unaware of the action going on outside of their Sydney CBD studio. 

As of Thursday the clip had racked up more than 15,000 views.

The amusing online moment happened after Barr opened up to Daily Mail Australia at Wednesday's Women of the Future Awards.

The TV personality spoke up about everything from Sunrise's ratings tussle with Today to the future of her co-host David 'Kochie' Koch. 

When asked about her co-star's future, Natalie replied, 'I guess we all have to retire one day - he's got years left in him! No time soon.'

When pressed as to who should replace the 65-year-old when he does eventually retire, Barr answered, 'He's not going anywhere, so I don't think we have to worry about that.'  

On Sunrise's ongoing ratings war with the Channel 9 flagship Today, the mother-of-two admitted, 'We always love competition - it would be pretty boring if we didn't have competition, so we're just so grateful for all our viewers who have stuck by us.' 

Reflecting on her show's years of ratings dominance since Koch became host, Natalie said, '18 years - I think it's time to reflect, and say wow.' 

'We're 18, and to be number one for that long is kind of humbling.'

She added, 'I've had so many people message me like: "Wow, my kids are the same age as you! I remember breastfeeding my babies in the lounge room, watching you when your kids were babies too." It's just a really nice feeling.'

The veteran news presenter also addressed stepping into the hosting spot vacated by Samantha Armytage earlier this year. 

'I don't think I was scared,' said Barr, without addressing the pair's subsequent feud. 'I was just determined to do the best job that I could do.'

'I think that's all anyone can do,' she added. 'You can't really be too worried - of course I was nervous, taking over a big job is nerve-wracking for anybody.' 

'But I was just determined to get up there and give it the best I could.'

Armytage famously launched a savage broadside at Barr on social media after quitting the show, claiming on Twitter that Nat 'wanted the job, forever.. & she’s finally got it'.

Natalie was reportedly left feeling 'gutted' following the snarky tweet.

Barr also managed to sidestep another Channel 7 controversy, when asked if she'd spoken to Weekend Sunrise co-host Matt Doran about his train wreck Adele interview.

'I haven't spoken to him, no,' maintained Barr.

Rising star Doran was reportedly suspended by the network after failing to listen to Adele's new album 30 prior to his high profile interview with the singer.

Her record label Sony subsequently denied Channel 7 the rights to air the interview, leaving the network to scramble for last minute replacement content.

The Australian Women's Weekly, in partnership with La Trobe Financial, hosted the ninth annual Women of the Future Awards lunch and ceremony, recognising and celebrating young Australian female trailblazers, at Sydney's Opera House this week.

Since 2013, the Women of the Future awards have been helping exceptional young women aged between 18 and 34 develop projects that transform lives.

This year there was an array of impressive entries, with strong themes around disability, conservation and consent.
