He has not attended a Logies since 1968, the year he won his Gold Logie as host of Bandstand. “We don’t go to premieres and stuff like that, so I stayed away,” he said.

“I look different now, I sound different. And what am I now? 81?” he said. “I have very fond memories but I wouldn’t even contemplate it. I went out around about the right time.”
