Enjoying a well-earned 3-month recuperation in Tahiti, Amy Winehouse is gregarious and laughing again. The troubled songstress has had enough 'rehab', has turned her back on black and is now virtually tee-total; she looks contented holding the arm of new lover Ben Newlove.
In the process of issuing divorce proceedings against first husband Blake Loser-Prisoner, she will be returning to London next Thursday and getting straight into the studio. Amy has written eight songs for a new album, and helping her in the studio will be Pete Doherty.
Then it will be off for a well-earned holiday and then a world tour in July to promote the album, including an appearance on 'Johnathan Ross'.
