Medical experts are fearing for the health of illusionist David Blaine as he enters the half-way point of his ABOVE THE BELOW starvation stunt.

The American star is in the 22nd day of a planned 44 above London's RIVER THAMES in a Perspex box without food - but doctors are warning that Blaine is days away from suffering serious physical harm.

DR JOHN POTTER, an expert on solitary confinement, says, "David is showing signs of withdrawal and this will increase as he focuses more on the internal world and leaves the external world behind."
