The star first announced she would be returning to the stage back in January.

Patti said she was committed to the Mother’s Day show with longtime friend John Foreman and the  Aussie Pops Orchestra.

John, who was the musical director for Channel 10’s GMA from 1992 to 2004 which Bert hosted, told the Herald Sun then, that he was  ‘absolutely thrilled’ Patti has signed on. 

Patti – who was married to Bert for 47 years – laid her husband to rest in November.

Bert had his leg amputated last year after a toe infection that led to another range of complications.

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

Earlier in May Patti Newton has revealed new details about Bert’s last days.

She hailed the veteran entertainer’s positive outlook as he battled various health issues, and admitted she was glad his suffering is over.

‘I didn’t want him to suffer anymore, so I probably am relieved that he’s in a safe place and resting peacefully,’ Patti said on The Morning Show.  

In Patti told Woman’s Day she had a ‘wonderful relationship’ with Bert, describing the veteran entertainer as ‘humble’.

‘Everyone has ups and downs. I hate it when people say they never had a word – you can’t go through life being holier than thou,’ she said.
