Pop star Lily Allen is in hospital battling blood poisoning just days after suffering her second miscarriage, her spokesman confirmed.
The 25-year-old singer was said to be responding well to treatment for septicaemia and thanked fans for their messages of support.
Allen was around six months pregnant when she lost her baby earlier this week.
In a statement, her publicist said: "Lily Allen is back in hospital, where she is being treated for septicaemia.
"She is responding well to treatment and her condition continues to improve.
"Lily thanks everyone for their messages of support and again asks that she and partner Sam Cooper be left alone whilst she recovers."
Allen had indicated she was unwell to fans on her Twitter site.
She tweeted: "I'm still very sick but the messages are helping me to be stronger. Thank you xx."
On October 30, she had tweeted: "Say a little prayer x" before a spokesman revealed the couple had lost their baby.
At the time, her spokesman said: "It is with great sadness that we have to confirm that Lily Allen and Sam Cooper have lost their baby."
