Britney Spears’ ex-husband Kevin Federline suffered a health scare while filming a reality weight loss show in Australia last month.

The former back-up dancer was taken to a local hospital when he suffered from “heat stress.”

Federline is in Australia filming “Excess Baggage,” a weight-loss program that will air on the Nine Network next year, according to Adrian Motte, a rep for the show who confirmed the incident.

Motte said, “Our first shoot was in November in the Kimberley region in Outback Western Australia, widely regarded as one of the most remote and hostile parts of the country. During the shoot, under advice from the show’s medic, Kevin was taken to the hospital as he was showing signs of heat stress.”

November is the hottest month of the year in the region, with daytime temperatures averaging more than 100 degrees.

According to Motte, Federline, 33, quickly rebounded from the setback. Motte said, “He resumed filming in the Kimberley shortly after and is currently continuing on with the show.”
