Win­ter springs back from face paral­y­sis

Sunday Tasmanian - - News -

TOO sick to cel­e­brate his sur­prise Gold Logie nom­i­na­tion with fel­low nom­i­nees last month, tele­vi­sion pre­sen­ter An­drew Win­ter re­turned to work on Fri­day.

Win­ter said he was 95 per cent recovered from his “shock” Bell’s Palsy di­ag­no­sis.

The host of Fox­tel’s Sell­ing Houses Aus­tralia said he was ini­tially un­der­whelmed by his nom­i­na­tion.

“I was in shock,” he said. “Half of my face was on my shoe. To be frank, I wasn’t re­ally in a state of mind to ab­sorb the news.”

Two weeks pre­vi­ously he had been out din­ing when a change came over his face. When he got home his right eye was wa­ter­ing and his lip and eye had fallen about 1cm from their nor­mal po­si­tion.
