"Please pray for her ! She has withstood and survived so much in her life - including being Marianne Faithful, that to be taken down by a virus would be such a tragedy.

"I spoke to her last week and she was hiding out from the virus but she has caregivers and someone brought in to her.

"I wrote to her much loved ex husband John Dunbar....He said, 'So far so good. But also that she can barely speak and no visitors'."

Her singing career sky-rocketed after she attended a Rolling Stones party where she was unearthed by Andrew Loog Oldham in 1964

The news about her health broke over the weekend.

The British icon rose to fame in the 1960s with her hit single As Tears Go By.

Her singing career sky-rocketed after she attended a Rolling Stones party where she was unearthed by Andrew Loog Oldham in 1964.

It was her debut track As Tears Go By which cemented her status as a global star.

Marianne enjoyed a headline-grabbing romance with Mick Jagger from 1966 until 1970.

She had only been married to John Dunbar in 1965, the year before she then struck up a romance connection with musician Jagger.

Her amazing life has been plotted into a biopic.

Lucy Boynton has been given the role of Marianne in the film.
