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

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

Fielder-Civil was put into an induced coma and is on a life support machine in hospital in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.

Ms Aspin, 34, who met Winehouse's former lover in rehab three years ago, said: "I'm praying he'll survive, but I'm having to prepare myself that he may never wake up."
