She's been snapped sightseeing, dancing and dining out with Blue Wiggle Anthony Field, but dancer Caterina Mete tells Jonica Bray...'I'm not breaking up their marriage'.
Blue Wiggle Anthony Field recently made an extraordinary public defence of his six-year marriage. Now Woman's Day can exclusively reveal the reason the normally reticent Anthony decided to talk out. As these photographs show, the father of three has become close friends with Caterina Mete, 28 … but maintains their friendship is innocent.
The petite dancer, who Anthony affectionately refers to as "Kitty Cat" or just "Kitty", also spoke out recently, telling Woman's Day, "I'm not breaking up their marriage."
And Anthony, who travels with the Wiggles up to eight months a year, says it's hard to be away from his wife, Miki, for so long and would like her and the kids to join him on tour.
Despite this, Wiggles insiders have revealed that Anthony, 46, has openly spoken about how close he and Caterina have become as friends.
"I don't know what to do," they report him saying. "I love Miki and I love my kids, but Kitty Cat is my soul mate."
During the Wiggles' recent US tour, Anthony and Caterina spent much of their spare time together. Between long-haul bus trips across the country, they went on a day trip to Elvis's Graceland in Memphis, had breakfast in Little Rock, Arkansas, and enjoyed a Mexican dinner date in Chicago. They were also snapped together on a visit to Gold's Gym and again while window shopping.v Anthony was often seen picking up the tab for Caterina, according to a tour insider, and the two frequently travelled on the same Wiggles bus, of which there were three.
Caterina remained by his side until the Wiggles tour ended a few weeks ago — the pair sat together in business class on their Qantas flight home, while the rest of the dancers travelled economy.
