    DECLAN Donnelly ‘collapsed’ on the studio floor with a ‘mystery illness’ in a resurfaced clip from his SM:TV Live days.

    The Geordie telly host, 46, was performing a dance with his co-stars Ant McPartlin and Cat Deeley when he suddenly appeared unwell.

    Joined on either side by 90s pop bands Westlife and B*Witched, Dec then put his hand to his mouth and fell on the floor.

    As Ant momentarily continued with the show, a member of the crew rushed in to tend to the apparently stricken star.

    “What’s he doing?” Cat asked. Ant chipped in: “Is he alright?”

    Suddenly, there was a commotion in the studio and Cat yelled, “Can somebody get the nurse” before the kids’ show went off air.

    An ITV holding message appeared on screen, stating: “Sorry about the fault. We’re working to restore your programme as soon as possible.”

    As it all happened before the days of social media, worried viewers began bombarding the SM:TV phone lines with calls of concern.

    But seconds later, the popular show returned and Dec was back upright and appearing well.

    He told fans: “Something happened here in the studio. I just…I just keeled over. I collapsed. I wasn’t feeling too well.

    “Thanks for all your calls of concern. There’s no need to be alarmed.

    “I’d just like to say happy April Fools’ Day.”
