The 39 year old was taken to a medical facility during the taping of Australia's Got Talent last weekend (12Mar11) after suffering a severe migraine, and medics found his blood pressure was at a dangerously high level. He was treated with medication and allowed home after several hours under doctors' watch.
And following the scare, Sandilands has announced he will not act as a judge on a new season of the Aussie version of Simon Cowell's hit show after realising it's "too much work".
He told fans, "I'm not doing it. Not because I didn't like it. I thought the show was great and it was great fun to do but it's just too hectic, it's too much. It's too much work, you know I don't like a lot of work.
"So I've told (X Factor broadcaster) Channel Seven, 'No. Thank you so much for the great opportunity but I'm not doing it.'"
Sandilands judged The X Factor alongside singers Ronan Keating and Natalie Imbruglia, while he sits on the Australia's Got Talent panel with Dannii Minogue and Brian McFadden.
The 39 year old, who is a judge on the syndicated TV hit alongside Dannii Minogue and Brian McFadden, gave his co-stars a scare over the weekend when he had to stop shooting the audition stages of the show when he was struck down with a migraine.
According to Sydney's The Daily Telegraph, medics came on to the set and realised his blood pressure was at a dangerously high level and decided to take him to a nearby medical facility.
He received medication at the hospital after several hours under doctors' watch.
A spokesperson for Sandilands says, "Kyle got through most of the day's taping but was feeling unwell and couldn't finish the day. He's home and resting up."
Sandilands' health issues came to light Down Under when he starred in a celebrity version of Big Brother in 2007 and had to leave due to suffering migraines and vomiting.
The star took to her Twitter.com page on Wednesday (22Dec10) to ask her online fans for advice on how to deal with the ailment, writing: "What does it mean if you suddenly have violent toothache in about ten teeth at the same time?"
She was bombarded with replies and the pain subsided after she took painkiller Ibuprofen but she was back online later in the day, adding: "Agonising few hours..... dentist tomorrow."
Hurley isn't the only star suffering with her teeth - former Westlife singer Brian McFadden underwent root canal surgery on Tuesday (21Dec10).
The actor, who is famous in his native U.K. for playing hardman Phil Mitchell in hit drama EastEnders, was quizzed by cops on Wednesday (03Nov10) following a complaint from his ex-girlfriend Dr Rachel Sidwell, the mother of his daughter Amelie.
He was later released on bail and is expected to return to a police station early next year (11).
A spokesperson for Scotland Yard says, "On Wednesday, November 3 officers from Haringey (London) arrested a 51-year-old man in connection with alleged harassment to cause violence against a female. He has since been bailed until a date in January 11."
Kutcher has revealed he met with his Just Married co-star late last year (09) and admits Murphy was the only actress he wanted for the role he had in mind.
Unfortunately, she died before he had the chance to start the top secret project.
He says, "We were casting a TV show that we were producing, and I wanted her to play this role in it, and she came in and I got to see her probably about two months before she passed away."
Murphy died from pneumonia at the age of 32 on 20 December (09), and her ex has paid a full tribute to the actress in a new TV interview with U.S. news anchor Cynthia McFadden, admitting he still can't make sense of her death.
In the Nightline interview, which will air in America on Thursday (13May10), Kutcher says, "I just celebrate who she was. She was, like, the person who walked in the room and she was always the first person to dance. You know when you go to a party and everybody is standing around, and the music is going and you know sooner or later everyone is going to dance. She was always the first person to dance.
"I just try to connect to that and celebrate who she was and how she was, and not make sense of it."
The former Atomic Kitten star was at the centre of a media storm last year (09) when a U.K. tabloid printed pictures of her snorting the illegal drug.
Katona lost several lucrative work contracts after the scandal, and she accepted an official caution from police for possessing a controlled substance.
The star has now spoken out about her drug habit, revealing she would lock herself in the bathroom of her home with her now estranged husband Mark Croft, and take cocaine while her young children, with her singer ex-husband Brian McFadden, played downstairs.
She says, "I'd lie in bed for three days in a row doing cocaine with Mark. We did coke in our en-suite (bathroom). The kids knew if the bathroom door was locked they mustn't come in. The children would be downstairs with a nanny and she knew not to let them up to our bedroom at those times. Our relationship was just about coke. Mostly, we'd have three-day sessions and not eat. I'd play online bingo, look up stories about me to make me feel worse, and watch cartoons."
Katona reveals she often suffered "fits" when she took too much cocaine, and her worsening health convinced her to kick her habit for good.
She adds, "I'd take so much coke I'd have a fit. Then I would come round and do another line. I had to stop, I had to get out. If I carried on doing what I was doing, I'd be dead."
Dickinson was fired from Banks' beauty contest America's Next Top Model amid reports the two former catwalk stars never got along.
Banks has not spoken about her decision to get rid of the ageing supermodel, but was asked about things Dickinson has said about her in a recent TV news interview.
When quizzed by interviewer Cynthia McFadden whether Dickinson and fellow sacked judge Paulina Porizkova were jealous of her, Banks refused to answer, but smiled and replied, 'Is that what you think?'
And the veiled hint has made the older model seethe.
In a new interview on TV news show The Insider, Dickinson sarcastically says, "Damn right I'm jealous... Everybody's jealous of the great Tyra."
But she insists she has no issues with the way she was dumped from Banks' hit show: "There's no problem - Tyra hires people, uses them and then boots them out and then hires the next person - I guess for a nominal fee."
But she does take issue with her ex-boss' claims that she's not much of a diva, adding, "She is the biggest diva on the planet next to me."
The News of the World newspaper has published the film, which purports to show the star rolling up a bank note and sniffing an unknown substance from a table.
The former Atomic Kitten singer, who now has her own MTV reality show, has admitted battling illegal substance abuse in the past, but insists she is now free of her addictions.
The paper alleges the film was recorded last Wednesday (12Aug09).
And now an agent for Katona has confirmed the star is considering legal action over the footage, telling The Sun newspaper, "We will be consulting with lawyers.".
She previously threatened legal action against the News of the World in March (09) after the publication printed allegations linking her to drugs.
Katona has faced a turbulent year - she was reportedly made bankrupt in 2008 and recently announced she plans to divorce her husband Mark Croft, although the pair has since thought to have reconciled.
Katona has two daughters with her ex-husband, former Westlife singer Brian McFadden, and two younger children with Croft.
The couple has faced a rocky few years, with internet gossips blaming the former cab driver for Katona's bankruptcy last year (08).
Katona - who once sang in now defunct band Atomic Kitten and appears in her own U.K. MTV reality show - started legal proceedings to put an end to their union in March (09).
The star quit the action after they worked out their problems.
However, the couple has now split again and Croft has started his own divorce proceedings, according to Britain's News of the World.
The pair, who have two children together, Heidi and Max, married in 2007. Katona is already divorced from ex Westlife singer Brian McFadden.
ABC News announced Monday it will replace departing Nightline host Ted Koppel with an eclectic trio: Terry Moran, ABC’s chief White House correspondent since 1999; Primetime co-host Cynthia McFadden; and BBC journalist Martin Bashir, whose documentary on Michael Jackson led to the singer's molestation trial.
The new Nightline format will premiere Nov. 28. As for a change in format, Nightline will now cover three or four topics as opposed to a single one on most of its broadcasts.
Nightline spokeswoman Emily Lenzner announced the show’s “main set” would be moved from Washington to ABC’s Times Square studio in New York City--where both Bashir and McFadden are based.
Bashir, a regular on the network’s 20/20 since last year, came into the American public eye in 2003 with his much publicized documentary on the King of Pop. In it, Jackson admitted to Bashir he shared his bedroom with youngsters, which contributed to child molestation charges against Jackson. Jackson, 47, was later acquitted on all charges.
Moran anchors the Sunday night broadcast of ABC World News Tonight, and McFadden has co-anchored Primetime since last year. Bashir and McFadden will also keep their current posts on their respective ABC shows.
Koppel, 65, will make his last appearance on the show Nov. 22, having been with the network for 42 years. Nightline grew from a series of late-night news specials covering the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979. They were first reported by Frank Reynolds, then by Koppel, who stayed on to host Nightline when it debuted March 24, 1980.
