Bert Newton has died age 83 after having his leg amputated earlier this year due to a life threatening infection.

Journalist Peter Ford told news.com.au that Patti Newton, Bert’s beloved wife of 46 years, asked him to confirm the sad news on his family’s behalf.

“I have very sad news,” Ford tweeted on Saturday evening.

“Showbiz icon Bert Newton has died at age 83. It was remarkable career on TV, stage & radio. Sadly he didn’t get the last chapter he deserved. He was a great mentor & friend to me. Condolences to Patti,Lauren,Matthew & extended family.”

The veteran performer — affectionately called Moonface — died while undergoing palliative care at a private clinic in Melbourne.

So long as you have tried your best, you should have no regrets.
