Spirited television performer Jeanne Little is reportedly in ill health today according to the Daily Telegraph, which reports she is almost unrecognisable.
“She is in bad shape, deteriorating rapidly,” one friend told the newspaper yesterday. “Quite frail.”
Her husband recently quashed rumours that his wife has been diagnosed with a degenerative disease, believed to be Alzheimers.
Little, 71, has a long showbiz history in Australia, winning Logie awards -including Gold Logies- and becoming an unmistakable part of The Mike Walsh Show in the 1970s.
She continued her charismatic performances, and “glad rags” costumery in The Midday Show with Ray Martin as well as panel appearances on Beauty and the Beast.
Little, who has also performed in cabaret and theatre, is synonymous with her trademark catchphrase, “Daaaarling!”
