Amy Winehouse’s dad claims her ghost is visiting him in his house now

She may have died six years ago but according to her father, Amy Winehouse is still making her presence known as he made claims that her ghost is visiting him at his home.

Mitch Winehouse made the statement in an interview with the Sun, saying that the ghost of his daughter sometimes comes and sits on his bed.

“We do have our moments, ­particularly on her birthday, September 14. It’s hard,” he told the Sun.

“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.

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

Mitch also believes that Amy visits him in the form of a blackbird similar to the one she had tattooed on her arm.

“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.”

Meanwhile, a musical celebrating her life and music is said to be in the works, which will focus on remembering “Amy for what she was” because “There’s so much more to her than just the drugs and the alcohol”.
