Fears for Bert Newton’s health after wife Patti shares photo from hospital

Fears for Bert Newton’s health after wife Patti shares photo from hospital

Bert Newton is in hospital again, sparking fears for the Aussie icon’s health.

But his wife Patti reassured people that he was fine by sharing a photo to Instagram showing the TV legend masked up in a hospital bed.

“Bert’s been in hospital, all good,” she wrote alongside the image.

“He’s got a lot of living to do.”

Mrs Newton did not reveal the reason her husband was hospitalised, but he is reportedly undergoing tests.

Last year he caused concern when he was spotted clutching his stomach while leaving Melbourne hospital with Patti.

Newton has battled several health issues in the past and spent over a week in hospital for pneumonia in 2011.

He had caught it from his granddaughter, Eva.

The couple’s famous friends have sent their well wishes on Mrs Newton’s post.

“Get well soon lovely man!!” former Miss Universe Australia Erin Holland wrote. “He’s got the best care in you Patti.”

“Go Bert! Strong as an ox you are. Sending love,” Olympic swimmer Leisel Jones said.

The veteran television star turned 82 this year.
