Australian TV Icon Bert Newton Hospitalised

It has been revealed that Australian TV icon Bert Newton has been hospitalised.

The 78-year-old was in the hospital last week and was seriously ill with pneumonia.

He has since been released but will now need ongoing treatment.

The four-time Gold Logie winner has previously been hospitalised for a chest infection in 2011.

He reportedly contracted it from his infant granddaughter and had to pull out of the Perth leg of Wicked the musical.
