Greg is the original yellow Wiggle and the original lead singer of The Wiggles. He was with The Wiggles from its founding in 1991 until 2006, when he left to obtain medical treatment for a condition known as orthostatic intolerance. He was replaced by Sam. He briefly returned in 2012 but was then replaced by Emma. He still occassionally performs in reunion concerts. He even resurfaced in the 2017 version of Wiggly, Wiggly Christmas.

Character Information

He was the lead singer in the original incarnation of the group, singing lead on most of the group's songs.  He has played guitar, keyboards, and drums in the videos and at concerts, making him one of the only Wiggles alongside Sam and Jeff to have played all three of the other Wiggle's lead instruments.

Greg is known as the driver of the Big Red Car. He is also known for doing his magic tricks in the classic years of The Wiggles. His magic trick was portrayed more in TV Series 2 when he would always try to find ways to pull the rabbit out of his hat but to no avail.

In 2006, he retired after being diagnosed with Orthostatic intolerance, and Sam replaced Greg until 2012. Upon returning to the group in 2012, he did everything he did in the early days before 2006, except for magic tricks. He stayed for a year before being replaced by Emma

Trivia

  • On August 22nd in 2006 during a Meet & Greet, before two schedule wiggle performances in Kingston Rhode Island, Greg fainted before either show was performed and was treated at a hospital for dehydration. So Sam had to quickly put on the yellow skivvy and fill in for him. And the next day, before another two Wiggle performances in Washington DC, Greg collapsed before both shows were performed and it was decided that he should return home to Australia. So Sam had to quickly put on the yellow skivvy and fill in for him again for the remainder of the tour. This happened during The Wiggles' DANCE! Tour.
