Patti Newton was admitted to hospital on Sunday after a ‘transient global amnesia scare’ in which she couldn’t recall her movements.
Having attended the Sydney premiere of the Wicked musical to see husband Bert, she flew back to Melbourne.
“It was quite a turbulent flight and I was sick on the plane,” Newton said on radio yesterday.
“When I got to Melbourne, I was driven home. As I got near my place, I lost my memory.
“Lauren arrived and I was standing outside the house looking a bit bewildered. I said to her, ‘I don’t know where I have been, what I have done, or where I am’.”
Newton, who appeared in 2007’s Dancing with the Stars, was released from hospital on Monday after the “brain scramble.” Last year she had her handbag stolen from Chadstone Shopping centre, some of which was returned after the thieves were caught.
She continues as a regular radio guest on 3AW with Bruce Mansfield and Phillip Brady.
