Lily Allen has suffered a miscarriage nearly six months into her pregnancy.

Allen's spokesperson said in a statement, "It is with great sadness that we have to confirm that Lily Allen and Sam Cooper have lost their baby. The couple ask that their privacy be respected and that they be left alone at this deeply distressing time".

This is Allen's second miscarriage. She lost her baby when pregnant with her then partner Ed Simonds back in 2008.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Lily and Sam.
