Kerri-Anne Kennerley’s husband of almost 32 years, John Kennerley, has been placed in an induced coma after a balcony fall at Bonville Golf Resort, near Coffs Harbour on Sunday evening.

The TV favourite’s manager Sean Anderson released a statement to media on Monday, which read: ‘Last night John Kennerley – much loved husband of Kerri-Anne – had a fall while attending a golf event in Coffs Harbour.

‘As a result of that fall, John has sustained a serious neck injury,’ he explained, adding: ‘John was placed into an induced coma before being flown this morning to ICU at Royal North Shore Hospital where he is currently being treated by specialists.’

One of Australian TV’s most-loved personalities, Kerri-Anne married John back in 1984 and after more than 30 years of marriage, says she’s still love-struck by her husband, who’s a bowel cancer survivor.

‘We are absolutely as in love as we ever were,’ she says. ‘I think your relationship does go off in different directions after 30-plus years but it does not lessen any of the pleasure and that is the truth.’
