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."
