And the photo’s were taken at a time everyone likes to have their picture snapped – in a post facial-glow!

Newton has been plagued by poor health and hospital admissions this year, as a result of pneumonia. He was hospitalised with the illness, which can be very serious at Newton’s age, in May, which was the third time he had contracted it.
Thankfully he was given a clean bill of health after being treated for the illness, as well as anaemia.
The star celebrated his 79th birthday will family and friends in July, and recently enjoyed a night out seeing Jesus Christ Superstar with Patti.
