Nora Ephron is severely ill, according to reports.

The screenwriter was rumoured to have passed away earlier today, but TMZ confirmed that she is still currently alive, although in a critical condition.

However, Ephron is allegedly suffering from leukaemia, and is expected to pass away within the next day.

The 71-year-old has been nominated for the Academy Award for 'Original Screenplay' three times over the course of her career.

She has penned films such as When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail. Her most recent work is Julie and Julia.

Ephron handpicked Meryl Streep for the role of Julia Child after watching her audition when they met at the theatre.
