Model Janice Dickinson collapsed on live television after getting stung by a bee on the set of "Celebrity Big Brother UK," but was able to return the set after medical care.
Viewers watched on Tuesday as Dickinson call for an EpiPen – used to counter severe allergic reactions – and then fall off her chair.
said "Celebrity Big Brother UK" sources thought Dickinson's life was in danger after the reality show fixture was rushed to a hospital. She was transported to a hospital "for a few hours," said the sources, then returned to the show.
"(Dickinson begged) producers to bring an EpiPen after she suffered the sting," said TMZ. "She showed staffers just how bad it was – one of her hands was almost purple, she was having trouble breathing, and panicked, 'I don't want it to reach my heart.' Then Janice appeared to have a seizure before collapsing and falling off the chair."
"Big Brother" producers cut away but then returned to the medical crisis.
Dickinson later thanked her "amazing, generous doctors for helping me," said the New York Daily News
"She's all good," a representative for Dickinson told the Daily News. "Channel 5 (the network that airs 'Celebrity Big Brother') got her to be looked after. She is back in the game and true to form in pure Janice style."
Along with her modeling career, Dickinson gained the celebrity spotlight as a judge on the reality show "America's Next Top Model" and most recently accused comedian of Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting her back in 1982, said "Entertainment Tonight."
"Big Brother" viewers took to Twitter about the medical incident.
