New Amy Winehouse radio documentary

A BBC Radio 5 documentary scheduled to air tomorrow morning (July 31) will reveal that the late Amy Winehouse was overly generous and didn't court fame.

The Double Take programme sees many of Winehouse's friends describing how very generous she was and how she had little interest in the fame game.

Former stylist, Alex Foden, tells the programme: "Inside the house, she so loved always [being] welcoming to anybody who was there. She'd invite her fans off the street. She sent me to rehab every time. She was selfless. She didn't care about money or anything like that.

"Given an opportunity, I think she would have liked to change her life because she loved cats. She'd rather work with cats, had she loved children and cats. All she wanted was to start a family and open a singing school. The price of fame was hard for Amy." 

Former News Of The World showbiz editor, Dan Wootton interviewed many of her close friends for the show to be broadcast at 10.15am tomorrow.
