AMY Winehouse’s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil was on a life-support machine last night after collapsing following a cocktail of drink and drugs.Blake, 30, was found choking in bed after a booze session. The junkie — said to have also taken heroin — was rushed to hospital in Dewsbury, West Yorks, with multiple organ failure.
Stricken Blake’s partner told of her anguish last night as he lay in a coma.
Sarah Aspin, mother of the junkie’s 15-month-old son, has been at his bedside every day since his collapse.
She sobbed: “The doctors say they don’t know the prognosis. They 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.”
Doomed romance ... Blake and his ex-wife Amy Winehouse
Blake, 30, who has long battled heroin addiction — was rushed to intensive care days after the first anniversary of ex-wife Amy Winehouse’s death from accidental alcoholic poisoning at just 27.
He had been on an afternoon boozing session with a pal after meeting probation officials following his release from a jail term.
But he staggered home “slurring his words” and 34-year-old Sarah found him choking on his vomit in bed at 6am the following morning.
A source said he had taken a packet of heroin and morphine he had obtained earlier in the day.
Blake's former father-in-law Mitch Winehouse has urged his daughter’s fans to “pray” for him, saying it was was “terrible news”.
Writing on Twitter, he said: “Remember Amy loved him. Let’s pray for his recovery.”
Blake suffered multiple organ failure and medics in have warned Sarah they can’t rule out permanent brain damage. He was still critically ill last night.
Shocked Sarah said: “I am devastated, just devastated, at what has happened.
“I just want to cry all the time — but I have to be strong for our son Jack.”
Hell ... Sarah Aspin and Jack
She added: “We’d been so happy last Thursday morning and talked about getting married.
“Blake had a 1pm appointment with the probation service in Morley and said he might be late as he was meeting a friend.
“He’s never really been a drinker, but when he got home with this friend, he was slurring his words and staggering — I thought he was on something. I was very angry because he’d been doing so well.”
Sarah, who met Blake in rehab three years ago, went on: “I had to get his shoes and trousers off to help him into bed.
“Next morning I went to get up and heard a horrid scratching and grating breathing sound. I looked round and saw Blake lying there completely grey.
“His eyes were rolled back and his mouth was locked together.”
Sarah said she shouted to Blake’s “pal”, who was still in the house — and he FLED.

She added: “I called the paramedics who were there within two minutes.
“They said he had swallowed his tongue and choked on his vomit. They were putting a tube in his throat and pumping oxygen into his mouth. I was terrified.
“At the hospital I realised they were frantically working on him, trying to keep him alive.
“They said his left lung was not working and they were trying to clear it.
“They let me in to hold his hand after 45 minutes. I found out later that they did that because they thought he was going to die.”
Blake was jailed in June last year after he was found with £4,000 stolen goods and an imitation gun.
But he was freed with a tag two weeks ago in preparation for full release later this month.
Amy’s dad Mitch blamed Blake for setting the tragic singer on the road to hard drugs. But he said last year he was NOT to blame for her death.
