David Hasselhoff was reunited with his old Baywatch lifeguard pals - but not Pamela Anderson - as he celebrated his 70th birthday.

“The Hoff” was looking as fit and healthy as the days he used to patrol Emerald Bay, celebrating the milestone with cake and a singing clown on stilts with his former cast mates Kelly Packard, David Chokachi, Jeremy Jackson and Parker Stevenson.

Kelly Packard, now 47, who played April Giminski on the show, paid tribute to the actor as he entered his eighth decade.

She wrote on Instagram: “Happy birthday to the man, the myth, the legend!”

Another former Baywatch pal David Chokachi swung by the bash to reminisce on the adventures the pair have shared.

Chokachi, who played blonde hunk Cody Madison, now 54, wrote: “Great celebrating @davidhasselhoff 70th, he’s such an amazing human being with so much love to share with the world . So many great adventures shared with this guy! Much love!”

Jeremy Jackson, now 41, joined the cast as a child actor but was pictured with a thick black and white beard marking the time that has passed since the show.

Jackson is now a personal trainer after ending his decade long-run on Baywatch in which he racked up the second most appearances after The Hoff.

Hasselhoff and Jackson were best known as father-son team Mitch and Hobie Buchannon on the wildly popular NBC TV series.

The party came as Baywatch star Donna D’Errico slammed trolls who tried to tell her that she is “too old” at 54 to be posing in a bikini.

The actor, famous for donning the iconic red swimsuit in the series, received hate mail after posting a video of herself posing in an American flag bikini on the Fourth of July.

“Quite a few women complained about the 4th of July video I posted in a red white & blue bikini because they thought I was ‘classier than that’ and ‘too old to wear a bikini’ and, my favorite, ‘desperate,’” she wrote in an Instagram post.

“Let me tell you something that might surprise you. I can actually wear and do literally whatever I want.”
