ADOLESCENT idol Johnny Ruffo was a no-show on the set of Home & Away yesterday after being rushed to hospital with a serious case of appendicitis.

The pop singer, who made a name for himself after appearing on The X Factor, then by winning Dancing With The Stars, was taken to hospital to have his appendix removed after experiencing excruciating stomach pains on Sunday evening.

The 25-year-old newbie actor, who plays Chris Harrington on the soapie, told Confidential he has been forced to take time off from the show following the operation.

"I'm fine, I'll be back at work in a couple of days," Ruffo said from his hospital bed.

A Channel 7 spokeswoman said Ruffo was in good hands and will be back on the Summer Bay set shortly.

"Johnny is recovering well and we look forward to having him back on set," she said.

Despite being cooped up in hospital, Ruffo still managed to keep his fans up to date on the release of his latest single.

"Not long now #untouchable can be pre-ordered on the 21st of June on iTunes," he posted from his Twitter account yesterday.

His latest hospital visit is the second in as many months.

Ruffo was a recent visitor to Sydney Children's Hospital at Randwick in the city's eastern suburbs to spend time with 10-year-old patient Jamieson Leeson, who had undergone spinal surgery.


Get well soon buddy...
