If you have a child under 8 you’ve probably heard of “The Wiggles.” Songs such as: “Fruit Salad, The Monkey Dance, Hot Potato and Where’s Jeff?” Jeff, (the yellow wiggle) has been absent from the show over the last three months and a replacement has been taking his place in the mean time and he probably won’t be returning.
Greg Page (Jeff) has a condition called, “orthostatic intolerance” which deals with the heart and a few symptoms are fainting and lose of balance. To read more about this condition check out this interview at ABC. This disease just doesn’t disappear over night, he’ll have it for the rest of his life. From what I’ve read about it he’s suffered from this for the past 12 years, but only recently it started getting too serious. So now he needs to take time for himself to focus on it and figure out how to live with it.
Before parents worry too much, there has been a replacement for some time for Greg so I doubt they’ll be shutting down the show. Just the original Jeff will no longer be on it.
Greg (Jeff) will be deeply missed by children all around the world.
