New-look Wiggles to wow

CHILDREN in Wagga will be doing the Hot Potato when the Wiggles come to town today.

Performing at the Wagga Civic Theatre today and tomorrow, the new team has put the controversies of last year behind them.

Wagga Wiggle Sam Moran left the group after original yellow Wiggle Greg Page returned after recovering from an illness.

A whole new line-up was then announced at the end of 2012 with blue Wiggle Anthony Field the only original member of the group.

The departures were filled with The Wiggles' backup dancers, Emma Watkins, Lachlan Gillespie and Simon Pryce.

"It's such a great way to start the year," Anthony said of their nationwide Taking Off tour. 

"There's so much energy with these young guys.

"We introduced Simon, Emma and Lachy on the Celebration tour around the world and audiences loved them and I'm so excited to be heading out on the road across Australia so that all our Wiggly fans can meet the new team."
