The 'Back To Black' singer's ex-husband is critically ill in hospital, according to reports.

Amy Winehouse's father Mitch Winehouse has urged her fans to "pray" for the recovery of her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil.

It follows a report in today's (9th August) The Sun newspaper revealing that the 30-year-old had collapsed at his home in Leeds and is currently on life-support.

The newspaper said Blake was found choking in bed after a cocktail of substances, including alcohol, and had suffered multiple organ failure.

Blake Fielder-Civil's partner and mother of the his 15-month-old son Sarah Aspin said she was "devastated" by his condition.

In a message on Twitter, Mitch said fans should remember how much his late daughter cared for Blake.

He wrote: "Terrible news about Blake this morning. Remember Amy loved him. Let's pray for his recovery."

Amy and Blake married in May 2007 but their relationship was marred by the star's problems with drink and drugs. They divorced just two years later.

Amy Winehouse died in July 2011 at the age of 27.

Mitch Winehouse has since setup the Amy Winehouse Foundation, an organisation which aims to help young people around the UK.
