Emma Wiggle Bows Out Of Tour Due To Endometriosis Operation

Fan favourite Emma from the Wiggles has been forced to drop out of the group's Australian tour due to chronic endometriosis. 

The Wiggle shared a special message to her fans on social media to break the news. 

“I’m so sorry that I won’t be able to perform in QLD, SA, NSW and ACT in the upcoming Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle shows," the post says. 

"I have been in a lot of pain for the past couple of years and on advice from my specialist, a difficult decision has been made for me to be urgently admitted to hospital to have an operation to manage the pain that endometriosis has brought on.

"A friend of mine will be dressing up just like me so you can still enjoy the 'Emma' experience in the show.

"I would like to send my love to all the other women experiencing symptoms of endometriosis, it is such a debilitating and painful disease and I urge anyone suffering with the symptoms of endometriosis to put your health first and get a diagnosis so that you are in the best position to manage this crippling disease.”

The remaining members of the group will fulfill the tour requirements with a stand-in for Emma.
