Molly Meldrum has fallen ill while on luxury cruise ship, the ‘Love Boat’, owned by businessman Lindsay Fox.
Meldrum left the cruise early and was admitted into a Melbourne Hospital after his previous injuries flared up.
'After struggling with an acute health issues whilst overseas, Molly Meldrum has been safely returned home to Australia for urgent evaluation and treatment,' Dr Brian Pliatsos told The Daily Telegraph.
Dr Pliatsos continued: 'The decision to manage him in Australia was made to ensure appropriate continuity of care given some ongoing complications following his serious fall a few years ago.'
'I want to assure everybody that his prognosis is excellent and ask that his privacy be respected pending a full and proper recovery', he added.
Meldrum suffered a serious fall in Thailand earlier this year. The former Countdown host slipped while getting out of a taxi at a Bangkok hotel.
The 72-year-old was also seriously injured after falling from a ladder at his home in December 2011.
