On her death bed

Lily Allen has revealed that she nearly died after losing her baby son to a miscarriage last year.

Allen was hit by a nasty viral infection when her unborn son died six months into her pregnancy in November, and has she said that she nearly died herself – although she was so stricken with grief that she barely noticed it.

‘It was really quite touch and go for a few days,’ she said. ‘My friends reacted so much more to me being ill compared to what I felt was the most devastating part of it, I couldn't have cared less about myself. I literally was on my death bed but I didn't even feel it.

‘I felt so lucky to have Sam and my family around me. There are some women who are so alone and have to go back to ghastly flats on the 17th floor and have no one. I don't think I ever realised how good I had it. I spent so much of my life complaining.’
