Former 'Baywatch' star David Hasselhoff has been hospitalised for a relapse but is reportedly doing well.

The actor's representative Judy Katz released a statement to celebrity website TMZ.com, saying: "David had a brief relapse and immediately recognised the importance of addressing it with the assistance of his doctors."

She also said: "He is doing fine and will be back home in the morning."

Last May a videotape of Hasselhoff was released on the Internet. The tape appeared to show the star attempting to eat a hamburger while intoxicated.

The actor later released a statement saying: "Unfortunately, one evening I did have a brief relapse, but part of recovery is relapse."
