'Skating with the Stars' Brandon Smith to Return After Hospital Visit

Disney star will be back on the reality show on Monday.

Brandon Smith will return to the rink next week after being rushed to the hospital on Monday while on the set of Skating with the Stars. 

According to reports, Smith was vomiting on the reality show's set shortly after his arrival in the morning. He also complained that he had trouble breathing. 

"He was taken away in an ambulance today on set," Smith's rep confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter, adding that the hospital sent him home "to rest."
Smith, who missed this week's chance to perform due to the illness, suffered from something viral or from food poisoning according to his rep. 
The Disney actor hopes to make a triumphant return for the next show. 
"We expect him to be back on the ice next Monday!" the rep added. 
Coincidentally, Smith's incident was not the lone drama plaguing the production on Monday. Skater Brooke Castille sliced her finger open while practicing with Olympic gold medal skier Jonny Mosely. She was also taken to a nearby hospital where she received stitches.
