THE WIGGLES star GREG PAGE has been struck down by a mystery illness that is threatening his future with the successful children's group. While The Wiggles are on tour in the US with a replacement member, Page, 34, is battling the condition, which includes regular bouts of fainting, at his home in Sydney, Australia. Group manager PAUL FIELD, who is the brother of Blue Wiggle ANTHONY FIELD, slammed reports Page has been diagnosed with cancer as, "Absolutely not the case." When Page was contacted by Sydney's Daily Telegraph, he said he was "not really well enough to talk". In a statement released to fans, the Yellow Wiggle explained his absence from the current US tour saying doctors were yet to diagnose the health problem behind the fainting spells. The statement reads: "I have had numerous bouts of this over the past eight months but they are getting more frequent, and more concerning. "So I have decided that I must go home, rest and seek further medical advice to assure myself that I will be OK for future tours." Page has often been absent from Wiggles shows since a double hernia operation in December (05) and has been replaced by his long-time understudy SAM MORAN.
