Despite a recent hospital scare, Judy Sheindlin, known to many as Judge Judy, will be returning to the court room.

Sheindlin became ill on the set of her popular legal show on Wednesday and was quickly admitted to a Los Angeles hospital. It is unclear what prompted the visit, but the 68-year-old underwent a series of tests, all of which confirmed her health. “All her tests were negative, and she’s going home tomorrow,” her spokesman Gary Rosen told KTLA.

Sheindlin has taken to her Twitter account to confirm her return to daytime TV. “I'll be back taping April 18th. All my tests were negative. I feel fine!” she wrote. Sheindlin's court room show Judge Judy has on the air since 1996. —EMILY EXTON
