Horne in onstage collapse

Comic actor Mathew Horne will decide today whether to carry on with a West End play after collapsing on stage from apparent exhaustion.

The star fell to the floor 15 minutes into the second half of yesterday’s matinee show of Entertaining Mr Sloane at Trafalgar Studios theatre.

The actor was treated on stage before the manager asked the audience to leave.

Horne’s spokesman told the BBC that he was taken to hospital but released afterwards, with a decision being made today whether to continue with the show.

The spokesman said Horne collapsed after working flat out for three months, the BBC added.

Horne recently starred in 'Lesbian Vampire Killers' with James Corden.

The busy pair also have a sketch show on BBC3 called 'Horne and Corden', which has received mixed reviews.

The Bafta-winning duo became household names after the phenomenal success of the BBC show 'Gavin and Stacey'.
