Howie Mandel has been rushed to hospital after collapsing in Starbucks.
The America's Got Talent judge is believed to have been visiting the coffee giant store in Woodland Hills, California, earlier today (Wednesday) when he passed out.
Howie, 65, was reportedly with close friends before falling over and being laid out on a bench in front of the coffee store.
It's believed that an ambulance was called and Howie was given the once over by paramedics on the scene before being blue lighted to a hospital in Tarzana, California.
TMZ claims that the Los Angeles Fire Department were also called to assist after Howie's collapse.
It's believed that the television personality is a regular at the Woodland Hills Starbucks and customers inside the store were left speechless after witnessing him collapse.
Medical staff are now believed to be examining Howie, with sources telling TMZ that low blood sugar may have contributed to his collapse.
The television personality was hospitalised just several days ago, revealing on the video-sharing app TikTok that he had undergone a colonoscopy.
However, he revealed that he was feeling somewhat better as he captioned his post "#recovery".
Howie recently revealed that comedy had helped him overcome his struggles with anxiety and OCD over the course of his life.
Speaking about his condition during the coronavirus pandemic, he told People magazine: "There isn't a waking moment of my life when 'we could die' doesn't come into my psyche.
"But the solace I would get would be the fact that everybody around me was okay."
He added: "It's good to latch onto ok, but during the pandemic, the whole world was not okay and it was absolute hell."
The star went on to say: "I try to anchor myself. I have a beautiful family and I love what I do.
"But at the same time, I can fall into a dark depression I can't get out of."
Howie continued: "Comedy saved me in a way, I'm most comfortable on stage and when I don't have anything to do, I turn inward — and that's not good."
