According to People magazine, Allen was rushed to the hospital on Friday night. Her publicist told a British newspaper she is is "responding well" and "continues to improve."

The 25-year-old singer, whose hits include "Smile" and "The Fear," was six months pregnant with a baby she was expecting with boyfriend Sam Cooper when she suffered a miscarriage late last month. It was her second miscarriage.

She and Cooper, a 32-year-old painter and decorator, have been dating for more than a year.
