US actor David Hasselhoff has been treated in hospital after being hurt in a chandelier accident.

Hasselhoff, 53, hit his head on a chandelier in the men's toilet after using the gym at the Sanderson Hotel in London's West End on Thursday.

His right arm was cut by shards of glass, severing a tendon.

A spokeswoman for the former Baywatch and Knight Rider star said he was "out of hospital and ready to continue his work tomorrow".

The actor recently cancelled his debut Christmas pantomime role - playing Captain Hook in Peter Pan at the New Wimbledon Theatre, in south-west London.

It clashed with a reality TV series in which he is due to judge aspiring performers alongside former Mirror editor Piers Morgan and singer Brandy.

He also starred as Billy Flynn in the West End production of Chicago in 2004.

He is in London filming an advertisement for a British internet company.
