The Kiwi-born star moved to Australia in 2003 and became a regular on shows like Rove Live, Spicks and Specks and Good News Week. Wilson alsoperformed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 14 times and was this year’s co-host of The Great Australian Bake Off. She became known for her elaborate headdresses, which she shared on social media during the pandemic and featured in a portrait that won the Packing Room Prize at this year’s Archibalds. Comedian Adam Hills led the tributes, saying Wilson “was one of life’s best people”.
