It wasn’t the New Year’s that Peter Stefanovic wanted.. at all.

The TV host has confirmed that he spent two nights over the break in the hospital.

In a post on Twitter, he revealed he had Parotitis, an issue with the salivary glands, and was taken to the Prince of Wales Hospital.

The news personality seemed to in good spirits as he made light of the situation by posting a funny video of a cute dog wearing glasses and a head scarf.

He wrote ‘’’Was in hospital for two nights over New Years with parotitis. Spent the whole time watching this.’

Hours after the Twitter post, he posted a photo of himself in his hospital bed with his fiance Sylvia Jeffreys and mother Jenny Stefanovic by his side.


The media personality appeared to have an IV drip attached to his arm while posing for the photograph with a small thumbs up gesture.

He confirmed he is ‘on the mend’ and even got a ‘’view of the fireworks’ from his room.
