Chevy Chase has checked into rehab in Minnesota to get help with his alcohol problem, his publicist has confirmed.

The 72-year-old is at the Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center, the same place Robin Williams was treated in 2014.

His publicist Heidi Schaeffer said Chase had gone to the centre for a “tune-up” in his recovery and “wants to be the best that he can be”.

Chase was also treated at the Betty Ford Clinic in the 1980s for an addiction to prescription painkillers.

The former star of Saturday Night Live and the Vacation movies is involved in two upcoming films – The Christmas Apprentice and Dog Years.

The latter is still in production.
