Bryan Ferry was admitted to hospital last night (April 5) and, according to reports, is "seriously ill".

The Roxy Music singer was due to make an appearance at an Olympic 2012 event, but pulled out after saying he has been feeling unwell for some time and wanted to undergo hospital examination.

According to The Daily Mail, a spokesman for the 65-year-old denied that Ferry had suffered a heart attack, only stating the singer was having tests.

The spokesman said: "Bryan has been feeling rough for some time and he felt even worse today. So, he thought it was best for the doctors to look into it. We’re all obviously very concerned for him."

He added that the tests were "a precautionary measure".

Ferry has a series of gigs booked throughout the summer, including appearances at Thetford Forest and Hop Farm Festival in July. There has been no comment as to whether these dates will be affected.
