A spokeswoman told the Press Association on Saturday: "He is now conscious and surrounded by family". Cassidy's health has been in decline for more than two months, and his family has been told to prepare for the worst, according to the report.

Cassidy in February revealed he was suffering from dementia. "I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I've been without any distractions", he said. I want to love.

Cassidy starred in the beloved "Partridge" series from 1970-1974, and the role made him a popular teen idol.
