Whoopi Goldberg revealed on The View on Tuesday (January 22) that Walters spent the weekend resting and also read a statement from the presenter.

Walters said in a statement: "First and foremost, I want to thank all the people who have called and written and been concerned about me. I'm most appreciative.

"I'm running a low-grade fever and the doctors are keeping me in the hospital until my temperature is normal. I'm pleased to say that it is going in the right direction and I will be home soon."

Goldberg went onto assure viewers that Walters is "fine", leading panellist Joy Behar to make light of her co-host's tumble.

"Barbara, we miss you, and lay off the Grey Goose, OK babe?" Behar teased.

Walters is expected to return to The View once her health improves.
