Update on Ernie Sigley's battle with Alzheimers, which became public in 2016.

Denise Drysdale has given an update on Ernie Sigley’s declining health.

His battle with Alzheimers became public in 2016.

She told the Sunday Herald Sun, “I went to see him a couple of months ago and I sang him the whole of Hey Paula. He stood and looked at me, got a bit emotional and gave me a big cuddle.

“Then I was sitting with him about 10 minutes later and he said, ‘God, you ­remind me of somebody’.

“I said, ‘Delvene Delaney?’ and he said, ‘No, not her’. I said, ‘Denise Drysdale?’ and he said, ‘Yeah, that is who you remind me of’.”

The Gold Logie winner, 79, who had over 55 years in showbusiness, notably on Adelaide Tonight, The Ernie Sigley Show, Wheel of Fortune, In Melbourne Today & Radio 3AW, is being care for in Melbourne.
