Fears over the health of Sean Connery were played down today.There was concern after the Scots actor failed to attend a fashion event in New York on Monday night at which he was supposed to be guest of honor.Organisers of the Dressed to Kilt show reportedly said the star cancelled his appearance to undergo health tests.But a spokesman for Connery, 76, said the cancellation was due to a scheduling clash.He told the Scotsman newspaper: “He had a scheduling conflict unrelated to a routine check-up he underwent earlier this week.”The spokesman said the actor was “in good form”.A host of models, actors and musicians took to the catwalk at Monday’s fashion event as part of Tartan Week, New York’s annual celebration of Scottish culture.Terminator star Linda Hamilton, Lord of the Rings actor Billy Boyd and I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker singer Sandi Thom were among those who took part in the charity event.Property tycoon Donald Trump sat on the judging panel in front of more than 1,000 guests.
