They've been in 'one another's pockets for well over 50 years' and will celebrate their 46th wedding anniversary on Monday.
And to honour the milestone, Patti Newton, 75, has revealed the secrets behind her long and happy marriage to television legend Bert, 82.
'I think you have to have a good sense of humour, that's something I do have, I'm always ribbing [Bert] about something,' she told Now To Love on Wednesday.

She added that it was also very important to give each other space, noting that she and Bert 'have different interests'.
'Because we give one another space, and we're both very loyal to one another, it worked out very well,' said the grandmother of six.
Patti and Bert married on November 9, 1974, after he proposed to her while she was working as a resident compère and entertainer on the QE2 luxury liner.
'Bert surprised me and got on board and asked me to marry him. A wonderful Australia Day and the best thing I ever did,' she wrote Instagram in January 2017, reflecting on the day her husband popped the question.
