Yellow Wiggle Greg Page collapses at reunion

Greg Page, the original “Yellow Wiggle,” is receiving treatment in hospital after collapsing on stage at a bushfire relief concert in Sydney.

The original members of the group reunited to perform a sold-out concert at the Castle Hill RSL.

The group were reportedly moments away from performing their final song of the night ‘Hot Potato’ when Page, the yellow Wiggle, suddenly collapsed.

A NSW Ambulance spokesperson said paramedics were called to the RSL around 10pm following reports a 48-year-old man had gone into cardiac arrest.

Reports claim crews performed CPR before he was transported to hospital in a serious but stable condition. Band members returned to the stage without him to perform the final song.

“We’re going to sing it for Greg and hope he gets better real quick,” Anthony Field said.

Page has suffered from fainting spells and chronic fatigue in the past, and hung up his yellow skivvy in 2006 after being diagnosed with a condition called orthostatic intolerance.

Update: A fundraiser show will proceed tonight with Emma Wiggle, Simon Wiggle & others.
