Veteran entertainer Patti Newton is recovering in hospital after a fall.
The 72 year old posted on Instagram, “Had a fall and hit my head, I’m so lucky after scans no permanent damage, just a sore and glued head. Thank you to the #frankstonhospital they were just wonderful to us xx”
Patti remains a vibrant guest at showbiz events and red carpets in Melbourne, recently attending Nine’s telethon as part of the AFL Footy Show.
Earlier this year husband Bert, now 79, battled pneumonia.
Get well soon, Patti!
