Patti Newton will present the inaugural award named in honour of her late husband Bert at the Logie Awards next Sunday.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the showbiz legend, 77, will honour Bert by presenting the Bert Newton Award for Most Popular Presenter at the star-studded ceremony, which we be held on the Gold Coast on June 19.

The ceremony will filled with countless Aussie A-listers, including Karl Stefanovic, Julia Morris, Sophie Monk, Hamish Blake, Waleed Aly, Dylan Alcott and more.

Spice Girls star Mel B is also said to be presenting, following news that she’s returning Down Under to film The Masked Singer Australia.  

The Logies will take place at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre within The Star Gold Coast Entertainment Resort precinct.

Patti gave a moving tribute to her late husband during a Mother’s Day concert in May.

The 77-year-old joined the Aussie Pops Orchestra event, held at Melbourne’s Hamer Hall, and sang a trio of songs devoted to Bert.

Photos of the late TV legend Bert were projected above the stage as Patti made her tender salute in song.

One of the numbers was a special tune simply called For Bert.

She also delivered a touching version of Unforgettable which, according to reports, did not leave a dry eye left in the house. 

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.
