Subject: Wiggles: First female cast member Emma Watkins leaves group

Written By: Philip Eno on 10/19/21 at 9:33 am

Popular Australian children's music group The Wiggles has announced that key cast member Emma Watkins, better known as the Yellow Wiggle, is leaving.

Watkins became the first female Wiggle nine years ago.

She will be replaced by Ethiopian-Australian teen Tsehay Hawkins, as the group revamps to become more gender-balanced and diverse.

Created in 1991, the Wiggles have become an international phenomenon among young children.

Known for their entertaining song and dance segments and hits like Fruit Salad and Hot Potato, the four-person act have fronted TV shows and have sold tens of millions of CDs and DVDs around the world.
