If you have never seen The Wiggles when you were younger, you probably didn't have much of a childhood "LOL." With songs like Hot Potato, Head Shoulders, Knees and toes, the children of the world have gotten hooked. However the band will break up after their Celebration tour which starts in May and ends in Australia in December.

Jeff Fatt (Purple Wiggle), Murray Cook (Red Wiggle) and Greg Page (Yellow Wiggle) will leave after the tour, leaving Anthony Field (Blue Wiggle) on his own. The motive for the break up has not been reported to be because of a fight but simply because The Wiggles will like to spend some more time with their families.  The Trio will no longer be performing but likely to take on backstage roles, "Obviously to still make some money with the franchise while not dancing silly in front of millions of adoring fans."

The Wiggles just think that it's time to move on and take on new roles, However the executives are not quite ready to give up on The Wiggles as they have already gotten replacements for the three that left.

Performers Emma Watkins, Lachlan Gillespie, and Simon Pryce will become the new Yellow, Purple and Red Wiggles, respectively.

"I think that the new Wiggles would be great. Look on the bright side. They have added a female to the cast. That will surely add more aesthetics to it.. LOL." Quote by Trinikid

Page, Field and Cook had studied early childhood education before they founded The Wiggles in Sydney in 1991. The band has sold more than 23 million DVDs and 7 million CDs worldwide, and its TV shows are broadcast in more than 100 countries, according to The Wiggles' website.
