This comes after a source claimed Bert's battle with pneumonia 'shook him to the core'.
'When he had a health scare with pneumonia in 2017, it shook him to the core,' an insider told the publication in April.
'He realised he was actually vulnerable and that terrified him. He knew he had a close call and had to take far better care of himself.'
