You are so well known as the Red Wiggle today, but what was it like at first taking on such an iconic role?
The Wiggles, when we took over, it'd been around for over 20 years, so it was a little bit daunting at first, but the children embraced that straightaway. And, we always tried to just hold onto to what the legacy of The Wiggles, which is entertaining and educating children in their early development.
The Masked Singer was brought to a halt thanks to a COVID outbreak, what was it like hearing that news and going into quarantine?
We were filming the finale when someone tested positive and everything got shut down instantly. I mean, it was such a COVID safe environment already, all the safety precautions were in place. Thankfully my wife, Lauren, was with me in Melbourne so we then quarantined together for 14 days. But we're all healthy and safe, so that's all we can ask for.
Do you have any guesses of who might be under the remaining masks?
It's tricky, isn't it? I think the public have heard more than, than I've heard. We're kept so secret from everyone, you don't mix with anyone at all and you only hear voices occasionally in group performances. They're three such distinct voices and so different, it's hard to pick a winner.
You recently revealed you're expecting your first child with wife Lauren, how are you feeling?
Really excited. This is our first baby, so, there are a lot of unknowns on the way for us. I spend plenty of time entertaining children but I have never had any of my own, but we're really excited. We're due early to mid January.
Do you plan on finding out the gender or leaving it as a surprise?
We will find out the gender, funnily enough we have the gender in an envelope with us and we haven't opened it yet. Because of COVID I wasn't able to go in and have the latest scans with Lauren, so they wrote it down and put it in an envelope, and we haven't opened it yet. We're kind of looking at it thinking, when are we going to open this? Why don't we open it now, why don't we wait? [laughs]
We thought let's get out of quarantine first and then let's work out what we're going to do. I think people get a cake made these days, but we will definitely do something.
