Ellis-Bextor's Baby Scare

British singer SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR's baby son was rushed to hospital after contracting the deadly brain bug meningitis.

The MURDER ON THE DANCEFLOOR singer, 25, and boyfriend RICHARD JONES took five-month-old SONNY to London's Chelsea and Westminster Hospital because they were concerned about his unhealthy appearance.

Fortunately doctors detected the illness in quick time and Sonny has since made a full recovery.

Ellis Bextor says, "It was a frightening experience, but Sonny is back to his usual happy self."

A source adds, "Because Sonny was born two months premature, Sophie is ultra-cautious about his health.

"She took him to hospital for a check-up because she thought he was looking pale and unwell.

"Fortunately, it was caught very early on. They are so grateful."
