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

Patti recently admitted that she and Bert had a real and robust marriage – and that included arguments and ‘wars’. 

Speaking to this week’s Stellar Magazine, she said the pair were just a normal couple.

‘So I never felt that I had given anything up,’ she told the magazine.
