Reclaiming Amy: 'She was really loved by her friends'

Friday 23rd July 2021 marks 10 years since the tragic death of the singer Amy Winehouse from alcohol poisoning at the age of just 27. The hugely talented singer achieved international stardom - winning 5 Grammy awards for her album Back to Black. She also made headlines for the wrong reason - her descent into drug and alcohol addiction and her troubled relationship and marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil was much documented. Those around her, her family, in particular her father Mitch, was accused of not doing enough to help her. A new BBC Two documentary, Reclaiming Amy, features Amy's closest friends and family and seeks to tell the story of the real Amy. We hear from her close friend Catriona Gourlay.
