The star hit his head during a routine with his professional partner, Katie Stainsby, and passed out.

He regained consciousness after a few minutes and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Medics requested the star remain under observation overnight, but he refused, according to Britain's The Sun.

He tells the publication, "Katie scraped me off the ice -- I had no idea what happened at first. I was out for a few minutes. There was blood everywhere. I feel like I got hit by a train."
