Elizabeth Taylor died today, at the age of 79 we can confirm.
The gorgeous star passed away from congestive heart failure in hospital last night having suffered from the condition since November 2004.
In a statement read by her publicist, it rightly named her as a ‘legendary actress, businessman, and fearless activist’
It went on to explain: 'She was surrounded by her children- Michael Wilding, Christopher Wilding, Liza Todd, and Maria Burton,' it added, noting that she was also survived by 10 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Son Michael Wilding, said: 'We will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world.'
The glamorous Hollywood leading lady was admitted to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles 'for monitoring' last month and used Twitter to relay news of her illness to supporters asking them to pray for her.
'I'll let you know when it is all over. Love you, Elizabeth,' was one of the final messaged tweeted.
RIP Elizabeth Taylor, one of the greats.
