“These three albums are the beginning of the beginning; we want Peachy Keen to be known as the go-to place for quality music that engages children,’ Paul told the Courier Mail on Sunday.

“We want our music to stand out from the pack,” he later added.

He explained: “There had been a lot of changes at the Wiggles, and I could have stayed there forever, but I felt I had scored all the goals and they were all safe in a new era.”

The Wiggles confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that Paul left as the business “went through a period of organizational change”.

“The Wiggles thank Paul for 24 years of service and for his leadership and dedication during that time. The Wiggles wish Paul every success in his future endeavours,’ the statement read.

“The company is currently going through a period of organizational change and is looking for new leaders to lead the company in the current environment and explore new opportunities in the ever-changing entertainment landscape.”

Paul’s brother, Blue Wiggle, Anthony joined the band in 1979 alongside retired members Murray Cook, Greg Page and Jeff Fatt.

The trio have been replaced by ‘Yellow Wiggle’ Emma Watkins, who left the band last October, ‘Purple Wiggle’ Lachlan Gillespie and ‘Red Wiggle’ Simon Pryce.
