David Hasselhoff spent two nights in hospital after a wild drinking bender in the wake of Simon Cowell's party.

The actor had apparently been drinking for days following Saturday's lavish celebration when his concerned assistant decided to call for medical help at his five-star London hotel.

But Hasselhoff lashed out and is said to have accidentally struck the physician - Dr Paul Ettlinger - in the eye.

Staff then manhandled him to the basement of the St Martins Lane Hotel while the doctor called an ambulance.






Hasselhoff, 57, was taken to London's £1,000-a-night Capio Nightingale Hospital, where he spent two nights in a private rehab suite before being discharged yesterday.


One fellow patient told The Sun: 'He was recognised immediately.


'Everyone was thrilled The Hoff had arrived and wanted to meet him.

'But the nurses were anxious to make sure he had a quiet time to recovery and were telling him he needed vitamins and iron to build himself up.'

A source close to the star claimed: 'David is very hard to handle when he drinks, often very emotional and aggressive.

'On this occasion he became so drunk he wet his hotel bed - ruining two mattresses - and was becoming a real pain for staff.'

Hasselhoff has been hospitalised at least five times for alcohol poisoning.

His publicist was not available for comment.
