Dame Elizabeth Taylor’s publicist has urged fans not to worry about the screen legend’s wellbeing, insisting her condition is improving and doctors are “gratified by her progress”.
The Cleopatra icon was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last week to treat symptoms of congestive heart failure.

Her spokesperson, Sally Morrison, announced on Sunday that the star would have to remain in hospital “for a while” because of her history of health issues – Taylor has had ongoing problems with her heart, even undergoing surgery in 2009.

And in an update on Tuesday, Morrison insisted the actress is making slow progress, and told fans their idol was in good hands.

The rep says, “Since being admitted there has been steady improvement in her condition, and over the weekend she has had visits from family and close friends.

“Her medical team is gratified by her progress to date, and it is hoped and expected that this will continue over the next few days. For now, she will remain under their care in the hospital for continued monitoring.

“Friends and fans around the world should be reassured that Elizabeth Taylor is in good hands and receiving the best possible care from her skilled and dedicated doctors and nurses.”
