Amy Winehouse’s dad says her ghost visits him

IT'S been more than six years since Amy Winehouse died but she is still very much present, according to her family.

The singer's father, Mitch, told The Sun that he is being visited by the ghost of his late daughter.

And he says Amy's spirit even comes and sits on the end of his bed at his home in Kent in southeastern England.

In an exclusive chat, Mitch said: "We do have our moments, ­particularly on her birthday, September 14. It's hard.

"After three years I was thinking maybe that one day she will come back in some shape or form, and she does come back - not physically, but spiritually - all the time.

"I could not begin to tell you how much she is around. There are lots of strange happenings.

"Her spirit comes and sits on the end of my bed. She just sits there and it looks just like her with her beautiful face and she looks at me. I say to her, 'Are you all right?' because I get ­nervous with her being there.

A documentary about singer Amy Winehouse has won an Academy Award, but her father isn’t celebrating. Mitch Winehouse says it's "fantastic" that people still love his daughter, who died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at age 27. But he says Asif Kapadia's film “Amy” _ which won the best-documentary Oscar on Sunday _ "has no bearing on her life.”

"But it is comforting in a way to know she is here and around me."

Mitch also believes Amy ­- whose hits include You Know I'm No Good - visits him and his wife Jane in the form of a bird that looks ­just like the one Amy had tattooed on her arm.

He added: "The week after she died I was at my ­sister's house and we heard this thud and a blackbird that looked identical to Amy's tattoo flew into the glass.

"We went and picked it up and put it up on a perch. It happened at night, when birds don't fly, but it came back and sat on my foot.

"And then we put it back again and it came and sat in the middle of us and sang. I do now see blackbirds all the time. And you think, 'Oh, it's only a bird,' but it's her, I'm sure of it."

Mitch, who founded the Amy Winehouse Foundation to support young people struggling with drug and alcohol issues, added: "There are so many things that happen to me that I cannot explain."
