Robert Gets His Wiggle On

What started out as a joke has led to a NZ radio host being invited to join one of the world's most popular children's groups.
Robert gives 'em
the brown eye!
Radio DJ Robert Rakete will soon make his debut as the 'brown Wiggle' on The Wiggles TV series. (No racial undertones here, oh no! This is just for KIDS, y'understand. Herrumph!)
Rakete performed with The Wiggles last year, when his co-host on The Breeze morning show Robert Scott suggested he join the group onstage: "They foolishly said yes, and after singing Hot Potato to 4000 screaming kids, they've invited me to go to Australia next week to film on the TV series as the fifth Wiggle!"
Rakete won't be leaving New Zealand or his job at The Breeze permanently: "I think of myself as like a Wiggle intern. It's just something I'm going to dip my toe into the waters of, and we'll see where we go from there."
The Wiggles formed in Australia in 1991 and have been hugely popular with children around the world ever since.
Here's Robert's Wiggles debut...
