Anthony Field, the famous Blue Wiggle, has assured his fans that he is indeed alive after a Wikipedia hoax claiming he had passed away.

If there’s one thing you don’t want to wake up to read, it’s that you’re dead. Anthony Field, 58, woke yesterday to reports that he had passed away in a Wikipedia Hoax.

“Wikipedia had me dead yesterday!!!” the Blue Wiggle shared on Instagram, “Unless I’m not up with the times, I’m still here!!”

He went on to joke, “I have died a few times on stage (you’ve seen the act!).”

Anthony Field’s Wikipedia page stated his date of death as August 15th 2021, and that “he ‘was’ an Australian musician, actor, songwriter and producer. He was best known as a leader of the children’s group The Wiggles and amember of the 1980s and 1990s pop band the Cockroaches.”

Thankfully the team at Wikipedia have fixed up his page, with Field confirming, “I’m back alive on Wikipedia now! Phew!”

Psychic Medium John Edward joked with Field, “I checked with my connections and you were no where to be found there.”

“Phew! At least it wasn’t me this time!” joked Richard Wilkins who has been announced dead in the past.

Grant Denyer’s wife, Chezzi, cheered, “Welcome back from the dead buddy!”

Thankfully Anthony is very much alive and still able to Wiggle around and entertain us.

  • That would have been a shock!


  • Some people are just rude and trouble makes.


  • That’s great news. My boys grew up with the original Wiggles and I’m sure that news of his death would have upset a lot of kids who’d grown up with them. Why must people be so cruel? Shame on them


  • Good to hear.


  • Good to hear! This has happened to lots of famous people over the years


  • Always rumours circulated when someone away from media spotlight


  • Pretty sure it’s not the first time this has happened. Obviously someone did not do the proper research before publishing this


  • So random seeing this, I just started playing the wiggles songs for my baby yesterday


  • An absolute downside to social media is the spread of misinformation that you then need to spend a lot of time refuting. Glad to see Blue Wiggle is still alive and doing his thing, but imagine the distress to his family, his fans, etc.

    • 100% agree. I don’t understand what joy someone gets out of this


  • I hadn’t even heard this until now!


  • I can’t believe people would change it to say he was dead that’s such a stupid hoax.


  • What a terrible hoax to wake up too. I didn’t hear about this until now. Glad he’s alive and well. :)


  • Haha some.people have too much time.on their hands…wonder why they chose the blue wiggle hehe


  • I didn’t even hear about the hoax! But good to know he’s alive and well


  • Ah, hoaxes are so annoying!
