He later exited the service centre with another member of the group, who was dressed in an all-black ensemble and holding a shopping bag. 

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to The Wiggles for comment. 

While Emma has previously admitted she was the one to initiate the split, she has hinted at a possible hope of reconciliation over the past two weeks.

Emma and Lachlan announced their shock split on August 3, but they actually broke up earlier this year, with Lachlan moving out of the pair’s marital home in Sydney when they commenced a ‘trial separation’ in February.

‘I think being busy has been very helpful. Now it feels like a bit of a relief. Now it feels like we can still work on that relationship, and we are,’ she candidly told ABC’s Australian Story on Monday.

It’s unclear whether Emma meant that she and Lachie are working on rekindling their marriage, or whether they are working purely on their professional relationship.

The twosome tied the knot in Bowral in 2016, meaning that their marriage lasted less than two years.

Despite their split, the pair have continued to work together in The Wiggles and related projects.

They recently finished filming the latest season of Emma’s spin-off series, Emma.
