Matt Parkinson, better known as The Chase‘s very own Goliath, was taken to hospital during Telethon in Perth on Saturday night.
Entertainment reporter Peter Ford told 3AW there was a concern during a ‘speed-dating’ style event at the Lexus Ball.
“He had a heart scare and was rushed off to hospital,” he said.
“He’s going to be ok. The doctors have given him the all-clear to fly back to Melbourne. But it was a momentary worry there for everybody that he just suddenly dropped in the way he did.”
“Matt is in great shape, resting comfortably and enjoying Telethon,” a Seven spokesperson said earlier.
Seven confirmed Parkinson underwent some testing, the results of which will be known later this week.
