She added: ‘My life will never be the same because Bert was a big personality and he lit up a room, and I always feel I am waiting for the door to open and for him to walk in or I am expecting him to come down the stairs’.

Bert died on October 30 while in palliative care in Melbourne after a series of serious health problems in recent years.

His health first became a concern in 2012 when he underwent a quadruple bypass.

In the years following the surgery, the four-time Logie winner was hospitalised three times with pneumonia and was also diagnosed with anaemia.

He was hospitalised again in March last year, and underwent surgery to amputate his leg in May after a toe infection led to complications.

The infection was ‘linked to his diabetes’ and was life-threatening, with doctors telling him the surgery was a ‘life or death decision’.
