The Wiggles: Emma Watkins and new boyfriend Oliver Brian pictured together for the first time

Yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins and new boyfriend Oliver Brian looked loved-up as they were pictured out together for the first time on Sunday evening. 

Just hours after Emma, 30, revealed her secret romance with Olivier, 32, a musician on The Wiggles, the pair were spotted flying from Adelaide to Darwin. 

They were joined by Emma’s ex-husband, purple Wiggle Lachlan Gillespie, and the rest of the group on Monday, as they also flew to up Darwin ahead of a gig.

Emma and Oliver looked smitten as they enjoyed some brief time alone while in the middle of The Wiggles’ current ‘Party Time’ Australian tour. 

They performed at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Sunday morning, ahead of three sold out shows at the Darwin Entertainment Centre throughout Tuesday.

Neither of them could wipe the smiles from their faces or keep their eyes off each other, while still in the ‘honeymoon period’ of their new romance.

Musician Oliver, who plays both the guitar and banjo on the show, carried a pink instrument case on his back, as Emma clutched their boarding passes.

Emma dressed casually in an all-black ensemble, with an oversized grey cardigan and designer handbag giving the look a trendy edge. 

She showcased her flawless visage while appearing to go makeup free, also tying her famous red hair back and wearing a pair of stylish thick rimmed glasses.

Oliver dressed equally as casual in dark jeans and a jacket, and proved to be the perfect gentleman while helping Emma with her bags at one stage.

On Sunday, Emma confirmed their romance to Stellar magazine, explaining they had built up a close friendship while filming and touring together for years. 

‘[Oliver] is the very opposite to me. He’s a very calm and thoughtful person and I’ve always been interested in his mind and his take on life, and his morals. He loves talking about the environment and food production,’ she gushed.

‘It’s not very ‘Wiggly’, but it’s been nice for me to talk about things not just concerning ourselves, but people everywhere around the world.’

Away from the TV show, both Oliver and Lachlan perform in folk-rock band, The Unusual Commoners, with Blue Wiggle Anthony Field and musician David O’Reilly.

During her candid interview with Stellar on Sunday, Emma also broke her silence on Lachlan’s relationship with dancer Dana, a senior artist at The Australian Ballet.

After the dancer filmed scenes with The Wiggles last December, Emma revealed she told a friend that Dana and Lachlan would be ‘perfect together’. 

Emma and Lachlan joined The Wiggles in 2013, started dating weeks later, married in 2016 and then announced their split in August 2018. 

They both remain close friends as well as co-stars, and supportive of each other.
