British Tv star Paul O'Grady is set to be released from hospital after a recent health scare.

The funnyman was admitted to a medical facility after suffering an angina attack earlier this week (beg18Nov13). He was reportedly set to undergo surgery, but his representative has now confirmed a battery of tests showed he is fine.

A statement from his spokesperson reads, "Paul O'Grady was admitted to hospital on Monday afternoon after feeling unwell.

"He has undergone routine tests which have shown all is fine. He will be going home to rest for a few days before returning to work."

The star, who has suffered two previous heart scares, also thanked fans and medical staff for their support.

He adds, "I am feeling much better - I would like to thank all the nursing staff for their kindness and everyone who has texted or phoned in wishing me well."

O'Grady is expected to be sent home to continue his recovery on Wednesday (20Nov13).
