The husband of pregnant actress Natascha McElhone is believed to have been found dead at his west London home.

Media reports claim Martin Kelly was found collapsed outside his home on Tuesday night.

A spokesman from Metropolitan police said that officers were called at around 22:46 BST last night by an ambulance crew.

The 42-year-old man was taken to Chelsea and Westminster hospital where he was declared dead.

The death is being described as "unexplained" at present, the spokesman said, also confirming that a post mortem will take place tomorrow and that police are awaiting formal identification.

McElhone recently starred in The Other Boleyn Girl alongside Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson.

She also starred alongside David Duchovny in the series Californication.

The actress is pregnant with the couple's third child and reports claim she is currently flying back to London.
