Britney Spears’ ex-husband, Kevin Federline, was rushed to a hospital in Australia on Monday after suffering chest pains while taping a celebrity weight loss reality show called Excess Baggage.

Federline, 33, was given oxygen by the show’s onsite paramedic team and then transferred by ambulance to Mt. Druitt Hospital in Sydney, where he underwent further tests.

A spokesperson for Channel 9 -- which produces the show -- said: "Kevin was at Doonside with the Giants, completing an AFL-related challenge.

"He did his challenge, which was running and catching the ball, then while his (in-series weight-loss partner) was taking the same challenge, he reported chest pains and a racing heart.

"Obviously on this show we have a lot of paramedics on standby and they treated him for the first signs of a minor cardiac arrest, called an ambulance and had him taken to hospital."

The former dancer -- who notoriously went from the nickname “K-Fed” to “K-Fat” after his noticeable weight gain -- has been filming the  celebrity reality series for nine weeks after weighing in at 232 lbs.

He says he decided to become a contestant “to become fit, healthy and buff once more”.

This is the second time he has been hospitalized during the show’s run.  Earlier, he was treated for heat stress during a stint in the Western Australia outback near Karratha.

Federline and Spears were married for nearly three years from 2004 to 2007. They have two sons together -- Sean Preston, six, and five-year-old Jayden James.
