Blake Fielder-Civil is fighting for his life after collapsing following an apparent drink and drug binge, his girlfriend has revealed.

The 30-year-old, who was married to pop star Winehouse between 2007 and 2009, was found choking in bed by partner Sarah Aspin last Friday before being rushed to hospital with multiple organ failure.

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.

He returned home on Friday night slurring his words and staggering before being put to bed.

Ms Aspin woke the next morning to find him unconscious before paramedics confirmed he had swallowed his tongue and choked on his vomit.

Ms Aspin, 34, who met Winehouse’s former lover 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.”
