America's Got Talent star Howie Mandel has been rushed to hospital after passing out at a local Starbucks in California.
The TV star was there with his wife Terry and some friends on Wednesday when he suddenly fainted, falling over and then being laid out on a cement bench, TMZ reports.
Paramedics were called to the scene and took Howie to hospital in Tarzana, though the 65-year-old star was able to sit up by the time the Los Angeles Fire Department arrived at the cafe.
According to insiders, the Deal or No Deal host is a regular at the branch of Starbucks and it is believed he fainted due to low blood sugar, though doctors ran tests during which he remained in hospital.
Howie is a judge on the popular talent show - which also has an Aussie spin off Australia's Got Talent - alongside Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and Simon Cowell.
His collapse comes after he recently opened up about his struggles with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and being a "world-renowned germaphobe" has made living life amid the coronavirus pandemic difficult.
"People have jokingly said you've been planning for this. It's a nightmare for me, it's really hard...," he told TMZ live.
"Honestly, I'm really down and teetering on depression right now as we speak. You see a high wire act on AGT, they maintain their balance and don''t fall, I feel that's how I live.
"I have a smile and I get to do wonderful things and have an amazing life and amazing family, amazing support, medically, but I'm not going to lie to you, this is really crazy hard."
Howie - who has three children with his wife - admitted he only sought help for his struggles after an ultimatum from his wife.
