The 43-year-old told 'Hello!' magazine she suffered a potentially life-threatening problem with inflammation of the heart, which led to a spell in hospital.

Hunter is hoping to find love again after splitting from Canadian ice-hockey player Jarret Stoll in 2009 just six weeks before they were due to marry.

She divorced Rod Stewart -- with whom she has two children -- in 2006, and the singer has written about their relationship in his autobiography which was published this week.

Her health problems came little over a year after she split from Stoll.

"When Jarret made the decision for us to split up the engagement and stuff, that set off a rollercoaster of emotions for me," Hunter said.

"And it's very hard: your self-esteem, your pride. I actually didn't realise at the time that it affected me as much as it did."
