Was Bert in Love with Belvedere?

Bert Newton would often cross to his floor manager, Belvedere, during his show to present a cheesy poem. It was often noted that the two men stared longingly at each other.

Here is a poem from the Bell Tower Times in memory of the two men's passion:

"Bert enjoyed Belvedere's smile 
Belvedere dug Bert's style 
The two men would glance 
Just waiting for a chance 
For their love to soar higher than brokeback mountain".

We now ask our readers to offer their opinion. Was Bert in love with Belvedere?
