Yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins appeared in her first TV interview since announcing her shock split from Purple Wiggle Lachlan Gillespie. During the interview, she revealed that while their relationship naturally came to an end, the news leaked to the media before they were ready for it to go public.
“The other Wiggles didn’t know. I don’t really think many people knew about it,” Watkins revealed on Australian Story. “Lachy and I still really wanted to work on our relationship, and work through some things together.”
Blue Wiggle (of 27 years) Anthony Field revealed that the pair did a great job of keeping their issues and struggles to themselves and got on with business as usual.
“Emma and Lachy are really private. They keep it to themselves, their private lives, and I never pry.” he said.
Further into the interview, Yellow Wiggle Emma went on to slam the media and how they portrayed her relationship with Lachy.
“The media does doubt our affection for each other, and they won’t write about that. But we genuinely care about each other and we have been through all of this together. Out of everybody, the only person that really gets me is Lachy.”
“This has been one of the strangest years and it has been tumultuous, but the truth is that Lachy and I love each other and we’ll be in each other’s lives for the rest of our life. And so I think that makes us feel quite calm.” she said.
