The red Wiggle Simon Pryce says recently separated Lachy and Emma are doing just fine and assertions that there is tension in the ranks is basically a load of poppycock.
“On the outside you wouldn’t know”
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Simon stressed that his fellow purple and yellow Wiggles are doing a brilliant job of navigating a challenging time.
“They’re unbelievably professional so on the outside you wouldn’t know that they’re going through any issues at all,” he explained. “They’re dealing with it really well.”

Simon’s comments come after some news outlets have reported on everything from icy distance to sneaky hand-holding between Emma and Lachy since they announced their separation.
In truth, the pair are continuing their work with The Wiggles as positively as possible, being respectful of each other, embodying “the show must go on” and prepping for an upcoming tour of Australia and abroad. Phew!

With friends like those …
Simon’s show of support is a stark contrast to some other friendships Emma and Lachy have been navigating lately, with Emma telling The Daily Telegraph earlier this week that some ‘friends’ have been leaking details of their split to the press.
“(Lachlan) has been great, but he had spoken in confidence to friends and they had gone to the media,” Emma said. “I think dealing with all that has been the hardest part — the betrayal. I feel so much more guarded now.”
The pair say they’re finding a new normal – and supporting each other through their big transition.
“We live separately but we see each other every single day. Some days are weird but the one person I have been able to rely on is him,” she admitted.
Lachy’s feelings mirror Emma’s, saying that despite their marriage ending, they’re still very close and love one another.
“We are the best of friends,” he told Page 13. “We always have been, that’s how it started. To be able to realise as a couple that we were going different ways and to stay as close as we are is a real testament, I think, to both of us.”
“I love her more now than anything and she loves me more than anything.”

⭐️ 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
