Unlucky David Hasselhoff Stars In Remake Of Chance In A Million

7806822WHEN they come to make a Hollywood version of Chance In A Million, the shoo-in for the role of unlucky Tom Chance – his “natural ability to warp probability to ludicrous proportions” – is David Hasselhoff.

Recently, The Hoff was taken to hospital for alcohol poisoning – but he hadn’t drunk a drop. It had all been a misunderstanding, a chance in a million. The Hoff said the Antabuse medication he takes for his alcoholism had reacted with Antivert, an ear infection medication.

Now, The Hoff has been even more unlucky. Reports are that The Hoff had been drinking for days in St Martins Lane Hotel. A Dr Paul Ettlinger arrives. The Hoff accidentally lashes out and accidentally lamps the media, who really does have a bruised forehead.

Hasselhoff is taken to the £1,000-a-night Capio Nightingale Hospital, where he spends two nights in a private suite before being discharged.

One fellow patient says:

“He was recognised immediately. Everyone was thrilled…”

Who needs booze? The power of spotting a celebrity is a buzz we can all relate to. Perhaps if The Hoff can spend some time catching sight of himself in the mirror he can be turned off stimulants? The insider goes on:

“But the nurses were anxious to make sure he had a quiet time to recover and were telling him he needed vitamins and iron to build himself up.”

When The Hoff – the man who brought down the Berlin Wall – needs building up you know the world’s ego is in trouble.

Says a source:

“David is very hard to handle when he drinks, often very emotional and aggressive. On this occasion he became so drunk he wet his hotel bed – ruining two mattresses – and was becoming a real pain for staff. His assistant Joe Townley was so concerned he called out a doctor. David was furious and lashed out at him – but mistakenly hit the doctor. They decided they had no option but to lock him in the basement until an ambulance arrived.”

Hotel guest Maria Weston, adds:

He was abusing all the staff, shouting at everyone. We were shocked – you’d think he was just some drunk, not a big star.”

No news yet from the Hoff’s camp, but look out for a non-denial denial and a sympathetic back story. And plain misfortune…
