A local mum is reportedly too devastated to speak about today’s announcement that Emma Wiggle and Lachie Wiggle have separated. Rebecca Bransbury has almost been rendered mute since she heard the news, telling close friends that she just assumed the famous couple would be together forever.

When contacted by The Watsonia Bugle for further comment, Bransbury said, “I honestly don’t know what to say. I’m devastated. I can’t talk. That was a true fairytale, if they can’t work it out, who can?”
