Boy George has spoken of his fear over his mother’s health, after she was taken to hospital for heart and lung issues.

The Culture Club star said that his mum Dinah is in a "stable" condition, but was concerned because he was told doctors will not resuscitate her if the situation occurred.

However, he added that he does not believe she has coronavirus.

The singer tweeted: "My beautiful mum is in the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Woolwich. A problem with her heart or lungs.

"She’s stable but they have said they won’t resuscitate her if things go wrong? Apparently, it won’t work? How can they know. Please pray!"

Asked by a fan if she has Covid-19, he replied: "We don’t think so."

Fans of the '80s music icon and famous friends shard messages of support to him, including Piers Morgan, who tweeted: "Oh no, I’m so sorry George. Will say a prayer for her."
