    Elizabeth Taylor is has been admitted to hospital for symptoms caused by congestive heart failure.

    Elizabeth Taylor has been hospitalised with heart problems.

    The 78-year-old actress was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles earlier this week for symptoms caused by congestive heart failure according to her spokesperson Sally Morrison.

    In a statement Sally said: "This issue is being addressed. She is currently being kept in the hospital for monitoring."

    It is not known how long Elizabeth will be kept in hospital but her family have asked for privacy while she recuperates.

    The statement added: "Her family and close friends are appreciative of the warm support and interest of her loyal fans but have asked that people respect her privacy and allow her medical team the time and space to focus on restoring her back to health."

    The legendary star has a long history of medical problems, including two bouts of pneumonia, congestive heart failure, a respiratory infection and a benign brain tumour which she had removed in 1997. In recent years, she has had to use a wheelchair when out in public.

    Oscar winner Elizabeth has appeared in more than 50 films but is also well known for her eight marriages -including two to Richard Burton - and her health battles.
