Australian Story: The Show Must Go On
The Show Must Go On
ABC  |  September 17, 2018

When Emma Watkins became the Yellow Wiggle in 2012, she overcame a backlash to make the yellow skivvy her own, winning over a new generation of fans.

As Emma's star rose, behind the scenes her health was failing. Eventually she was diagnosed with endometriosis and her decision to go public brought much-needed attention to the disease.

Her health problems led her to re-evaluate other areas of her life and at the beginning of the year she separated from her husband, fellow Wiggle Lachlan Gillespie.

Emma speaks exclusively about the separation, its fall-out and the couple’s determination to continue working together.
