The Wiggles are expected to announce tomorrow Nov 30th that member Greg Page will be leaving the group due to a serious illness.
Popular children's entertainers, The Wiggles, have scheduled a press conference in Perth for Thursday Nov 30th to announce a major change to the group's line-up.
The Sydney Morning Herald, Australian Associated Press and the online edition of Sydney's The Daily Telegraph newspaper are all reporting the group was likely to announce the departure of the "Yellow Wiggle," Greg Page, who has been frequently absent from touring since undergoing a double hernia operation in December.
The 34-year-old known for his bright yellow T-shirt has been undergoing medical treatment since June after experiencing fainting spells and lethargy, the reports said. Due to such fact, Page has often been absent from Wiggles shows and has been replaced by his long-time understudy Sam Moran.
More on the Wiggles, they were Australia's Top-Earning Entertainers last year. The Sydney-based group has, as well, won five ARIA Awards and three APRAs awards and sold in excess of 17 million videos and 5 million CDs worldwide.
