TMZ reports that his team has confirmed that the 44-year-old actor was hospitalized in Florida last weekend, amid complaints of general pain throughout his body.

Saved by the Bell star Dustin Diamond has been hospitalised and is thought to be battling cancer.

Dustin Diamond played Screech on Saved By The Bell.

TMZ says a representative of Diamond told the publication that doctors have been running a number of tests on the former child actor and have yet to determine what's wrong with him.

Dustin's family reportedly has a history with the potentially life-threatening disease, and he previously lost his mother to breast cancer.

While most of the Bell cast has gone on to have successful careers like Mario Lopez and Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Diamond has not had an easy time.

He continued to play Screech on the initial run of Saved By The Bell on NBC from 1989 until 1993 and kept the character going on multiple revivals.

They said in a statement: "Yes it is true he is in the hospital".

"I was a first-time author so they had a ghostwriter", Diamond said.
