Sadly any celebration will have to take place away from his family because of the restrictions imposed by Melbourne’s current lockdown.
Bert had been enjoying precious time with Patti and his grandchildren prior to COVID restrictions coming back into effect.
The Morning Show and all our viewers wish Bert a happy birthday and all the very best on his road to recovery.
