Radio personality Robert Rakete has a new job - as the official fifth member of The Wiggles.
From next week Rakete, co-host of the Breakfast show on The Breeze, will become known as the "brown Wiggle" in the hugely popular children's group The Wiggles.
While he won't be leaving his day job permanently, Rakete will take time off to fly to Australia where he has been asked to feature in the group's new television series which is being filmed early next week.
"We got a call just this morning and they've basically asked if I'd like to come up and take part as the brown Wiggle.
"I'm kind of packing myself right now," he laughed.
Rakete admits to having a bit of experience on his side, saying he spent many hours singing along to various Wiggles hits with his children as they were growing up.
"We have a blended family so my youngest is 9 and the oldest is 21 and they all grew up with The Wiggles. Yes, I know the songs."
His rise to Wiggle fame started late last year when a suggestion was jokingly made on air that he became the fifth Wiggle.
Rakete and fellow Breakfast host Robert Scott were discussing the group, who were in the country for their Ready, Steady, Wiggle tour.
"Robert said to me: 'Wouldn't it be cool if you went along as the brown Wiggle? They've got all the primary colours, so why not brown?
"I said I couldn't - my argument was that I didn't have a brown skivvy. Then a guy in Papatoetoe calls in saying he can make me one, so we had to go through with it!"
