New fears for Molly: Unwell star rushes home to Oz

The cruise of a lifetime proves too much for beloved star

There are renewed concerns for Aussie music and TV legend Molly Meldrum, who has dramatically cut short an overseas holiday to return home to Australia, reportedly due to unresolved health issues related to his recent fall in Bangkok. 

Molly had been a guest on a cruise charted by billionaire Lindsay Fox, but he left the luxurious Seabourn Odyssey before its final destination in Venice, with the Herald Sun reporting he headed home after an early exit on the Greek island of Lefkada. 

The star suffered a nasty collapse in Thailand earlier this year, just prior to the screening of the spectacularly successful Channel 7 mini series about his life, titled Molly. It is known he’s endured a long struggle to fully recover from his life-threatening fall at his home in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond five years ago.
