Bert Newton celebrated Christmas with his adoring family after he returned home from hospital following a mystery illness, late last year.

And on Friday, the 82-year-old TV icon was once again joined by his loved ones as he rung in the New Year.

Bert sparked fears for his health after Patti shared a photo on Instagram of the veteran entertainer wearing a mask while lying in his hospital bed, in November.

‘Bert’s been in hospital [but] all good. He’s got a lot of living to do,’ she captioned the picture.

Bert’s health first became a concern in 2012 when he underwent a quadruple bypass.

In the years following the surgery, he was hospitalised three times with pneumonia and was also diagnosed with Anemia.

Anemia can make a person feel tired or weak because there are not enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to the body’s tissues. 

The four-time Gold Logie winner told reporters outside hospital in 2017 that he was feeling better after being treated for pneumonia.

‘I’m feeling better now. It took a while. I didn’t realise until I copped it the first time, that pneumonia is such a serious thing, but I’m feeling better now,’ he said at the time.
