Mitch Winehouse has said his daughter's ex-husband "is going to get through this" after he was left fighting for his life at a West Yorkshire hospital following an apparent drink and drugs binge.

Blake Fielder-Civil, 30, was found choking in bed by partner Sarah Aspin last Friday before being rushed to hospital with multiple organ failure.

Fielder-Civil, a recovering drug addict, had gone out drinking with a friend the previous day and Ms Aspin, mother of his 15-month-old son, said she believed he might have taken an illicit substance.

Mitch Winehouse says he is praying for his late daughter's former husband.

He was put into an induced coma and on a life support machine in hospital in Dewsbury.

Mr Winehouse took to Twitter to voice his views:

Earlier in the week, he had asked fans to pray for Fielder-Civil saying: "Remember Amy loved him".

Ms Aspin, 34, who met Winehouse's former husband in rehab three years ago, told The Sun: "The doctors said they put him in a coma to help him and due to infection. I'm praying he'll survive, but I'm having to prepare myself that he may never wake up."

Fielder-Civil has long battled heroin addiction and spent time in prison in 2007.

The former music video assistant married pop star Winehouse in 2007 and they divorced two years later.
