The Emmy Award winner was taking a break from filming her TV show Animal Kingdom on Tuesday (22Mar16), when she began to panic after food became lodged in her throat.

According to TMZ.com, the 61-year-old passed out and was taken to a Los Angeles hospital, where doctors performed a series of tests before discharging her the same night.

Ellen was back on set on Wednesday and her representative tells GossipCop.com she is "fine."
