Shock Wiggles split: They’ve gone from hot potato to cold spaghetti

One of Australia’s most loved couples have called it quits, with Wiggles power couple Emma Watkins and Lachlan Gillespie ending their 2-year-long marriage.

The pair told The Daily Mail they’ve had a tough time recently.

“We wanted to let you know that privately for the last six months we have been navigating through a trial separation, and we have made the decision to separate as a couple,” Watkins and Gillespie said.

“Throughout that period, we have performed hundreds of shows together and that is always a continued source of joy for us both.

The pair were married in 2016 in front of around 200 friends and family that included fellow Wiggles Anthony and Simon.

Watkins was the first female Wiggle and has recently revealed her chronic health issues with endometriosis.

There is no news about whether they’ll both stay in the group.

⭐️ Lachy ⭐️ We have, and continue to share, the most beautiful life together, but we wanted to let you know that privately for the last six months we have been navigating through a trial separation, and we have made the decision to separate as a couple. Throughout that period, we have performed hundreds of shows together and that is always a continued source of joy for us both. We have embraced this as a very positive change in our relationship. Our incredible friendship has been strengthened throughout this time and what we have discovered is that, more than ever, first and foremost we love and adore performing as Emma and Lachy in The Wiggles and having the privilege of celebrating this happiness with extraordinary families around the world. We have chosen a different path to travel in our personal lives, but please know that we are stronger than ever and we can’t wait to see you at a show soon. We will not be commenting beyond this, and we thank you in advance for respecting our privacy. Lots of love, Emma and Lachy xx @lachy_wiggle
