Shannon Elizabeth's dancer boyfriend Derek Hough is recovering after collapsing while shooting the current season of U.S. TV celebrity talent contest Dancing With The Stars.
Just days after Olympic volleyball champ Misty May Treanor was forced to pull out of the show due to an Achilles injury, actress/model Brooke Burke's professional partner blacked out after falling awkwardly and banging his head.
Hough, who has been dating Elizabeth since they were paired up together on the show last year (07), was hospitalised on Saturday (04Oct08).
A show publicist confirms, "Derek was walking backwards and tripped over something on the floor. He was knocked out for a brief moment and was taken to the hospital as a precaution to make sure he was OK.
"After test results showed that he was fine, Derek was released and was sent home to rest."
Sources claim Hough will be ready for Monday night's (06Oct08) televised dance-off.
Burke says, "It has been an intense weekend... Derek accidentally tripped over a box and as he tried to break his fall, by jumping up, his foot caught a stage light which sent him further into the air. He landed on his back on the wooden dance floor and smashed the back of his head. He was disoriented, blacked out for a few seconds, and was flattened out in pain. He couldn't move."
