Kelsey Grammer

Kelsey Grammer has been released from hospital.

The 'Frasier' actor was being treated in a Hawaii hospital since suffering a mild heart attack on Saturday morning (31.05.08), but was allowed to go home on Wednesday (04.06.08).

His representative Stan Rosenfield said: "Kelsey is resting comfortably at his Hawaiian home. He wishes to thank those who phoned, emailed or wrote expressions of concern to him."

Grammer, 53, was taken ill after paddle boarding with his wife Camille on the idyllic US state.

Although the actor does not have a history of heart trouble, he has battled alcoholism and drug addiction.

He was treated for drink problems at a rehabilitation centre in 1990, but became addicted to cocaine shortly after he was released.

He said: "The minute I got out I went home and did a lot of cocaine. It took me to the place where I felt like I was at the edge. And I liked living there. I probably would have died if I hadn't stopped."
