According to a tabloid newspaper report, the spirit of singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse has been seen by her father Mitch, a former taxi driver, on a number of occasions.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun (31 December 2017), he said there had been a number of strange happenings in the family home in Kent since Amy died from alcohol poisoning six years ago.
"She does come back - not physically, but spiritually - all the time," he told Dan Wootton, who writes the newspaper's Bizarre column. She even comes and sits on the end of his bed.
We do have our moments, particularly on her birthday, 14th September," he said, adding:
"After three years I was thinking maybe that one day she will come back in some shape or form, and she does come back ... I cannot begin to tell you how much she is around."
Referring to her nocturnal visits, Mitch explained: "She just sits there and it looks just like her beautiful face and she looks at me. I say to her, 'Are you alright?' because I get nervous with her being there. But it is comforting in a way to know she is here and around me."
Mitch and his wife Jane believe their daughter also makes her presence felt in other ways, including appearing in the form of a bird, just like the one Amy had tattooed on her right arm.
"The week after she died", he explained, "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 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."
Since his daughter's death, Mitch has founded the Amy Winehouse Foundation to support young people struggling with drug and alcohol issues.
