TV and radio personality Todd McKenney has been charged after being found unconscious in a park in the Sydney suburb of Rushcutters Bay from a drug overdose.

The Dancing With The Stars judge was found by members of the public at 3.30pm (AEST) on Friday and had to be revived by ambulance officers.

He was later charged with possessing the drug GHB.

McKenney, who lives at Bondi, reportedly did not work on his FM radio show that day as it was Anzac Day and the 106.5FM program he presents with Sonia Kruger was pre-recorded.

The night before he had attended a party in Macleay Street, Potts Point.

The celebrity told The Sunday Telegraph he believes his drink was spiked and the drug was planted on him.

"I had a vodka and tonic and I started to feel progressively sick. I have no idea where I ended up. My drink was obviously spiked," he said.

McKenney said it was probably "the tall poppy syndrome".

"They obviously wanted to put the boot into me," he said.

"I don't know what I have done to deserve this treatment. I will rigorously defend any charges."

McKenney said there were a lot of people at the party he did not know and he believes it was "all a set-up".

McKenney is due to front Downing Centre Local Court on May 16.
