Sam Moran dodges Wiggles questions:

As he is mobbed by media and dozens of families keen to show their support

When a Sydney children's author asked her friend Sam Moran two months ago to help launch a new book she never dreamed she'd get so much publicity.

Aimee Atkins and Moran met on the set of The Wiggles 14 years ago when she was playing Dorothy The Dinosaur and he was a stand-in.

On Friday, they launched Atkins' book Billy's Boatshed and were mobbed by media and dozens of families keen to show their support to the recently dumped Yellow Wiggle.

While Moran refused to be drawn on the fallout from his ousting, he confirmed talks are underway for future entertainment projects and joked he may call on Atkins for a job.

"She asked me eight weeks ago if I'd come down and help launch her book Billy's Boatshed," Moran said.

"I've read the book and loved them so I really wanted to come down and support her as a friend.

"I didn't realise I might be asking her for a job down the line."

Flanked by his wife Lynn and daughter Eloise at the launch in Clifton Park, Mosman, a relaxed Moran said he was enjoying family time and was unconcerned by the media attention.

"It was a little unexpected but it's been fine," he said.

"All the support I've received from families and fans online and here in this park has been incredible and really humbling for me."
