Emma dressed casually in a black sleeveless top and jeans, and draped an oversized grey cardigan over her shoulders.

Oliver, who also dressed casually for the flight in dark jeans and a jacket, was seen helping his girlfriend with her bags. 

Early days! Neither of them could wipe the smiles from their faces or keep their eyes off each other, while still in the ‘honeymoon period’ of their new romance

Friends to lovers! On Sunday, Emma confirmed their romance to Stellar magazine, explaining they had built up a close friendship while filming and touring together for years

‘He’s a very calm and thoughtful person and I’ve always been interested in his mind and his take on life, and his morals,’ gushed Emma of Oliver on Sunday 

On Sunday, Emma confirmed their romance to  magazine, explaining they had built up a close friendship while filming and touring together for years. 

‘[Oliver] is the very opposite to me. He’s a very calm and thoughtful person and I’ve always been interested in his mind and his take on life, and his morals. He loves talking about the environment and food production,’ she gushed.

‘It’s not very ‘Wiggly’, but it’s been nice for me to talk about things not just concerning ourselves, but people everywhere around the world.’

Mutual interests! Emma says she specifically likes conversations with Oliver about the  environment and food production

Emma’s new romance comes after her ex-husband, purple Wiggle Lachlan Gillespie, 34, moved on with dancer Dana Stephensen, after also meeting on the show.

On Monday morning, Lachlan flashed a faint smile as he made his way from Adelaide to Darwin with the rest of the group, where he’d catch up with the new couple.

Lachlan dressed smart-casual in a red shirt, dark pants, black shoes and a cap.

Away from the TV show, both Oliver and Lachlan perform in folk-rock band, The Unusual Commoners, with Blue Wiggle Anthony Field and musician David O’Reilly.

During her candid interview with Stellar on Sunday, Emma also broke her silence on Lachlan’s relationship with dancer Dana, a senior artist at The Australian Ballet.

After the dancer filmed scenes with The Wiggles last December, Emma revealed she told a friend that Dana and Lachlan would be ‘perfect together’. 

Emma and Lachlan joined The Wiggles in 2013, started dating weeks later, married in 2016 and then announced their split in August 2018. 

They both remain close friends as well as co-stars, and supportive of each other.
