‘After 11 years of performing with The Wiggles, and nine of those as the Yellow Wiggle, the time has come for me to pass the yellow skivvy on,’ she said.

‘Like many people around the world, the pandemic has given me time to reflect on what is important in life.

‘For me, that means spending more time at home, something that I didn’t realise I was missing out on being away eight months of the year on tour, but something that I have really cherished over the last 18 months.’  

Emma is being replaced in 2022 by teenager Tsehay Hawkins, who joined the Wiggles family earlier this year for its ‘Fruit Salad TV’ YouTube series and has now been promoted to the main line-up.

At 16 years old, she is the band’s youngest-ever member. 

Emma was married to fellow band member Lachlan Gillespie, a.k.a. the Purple Wiggle, from 2016 to 2018.

Despite their break-up, the pair remained friends and continued to tour and record with The Wiggles, and even self-isolated together during the coronavirus pandemic.

She is now engaged to Oliver Brian, a musician who works with The Wiggles.

Lachy meanwhile is now engaged to ballet dancer Dana Stephensen.
