Amy Winehouse's former husband: 'She wouldn't have experienced heroin without me'

Blake Fielder-Civil, the former husband of songstress Amy Winehouse, has admitted that he introduced the late star to heroin and she probably wouldn't have tried it without his influence.

He appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show today (February 27) with his girlfriend Sarah Aspin and talked about successfully completing a stint in rehab, but also spoke about his relationship with Winehouse where her drug use was concerned:

"I've admitted I was there when she had it the first time. It was my doing, I don't think she would have ever experienced it without me."

The 'Tears Dry On Their Own' hitmaker died in 2011 from alcohol poisoning, but had a history with substance abuse and Fielder-Civil added: "I have to be really sort of conscious about what I say, I don't want to feel like I'm shirking responsibility, the fact is what I'm saying is, of course I regret it. Not just because of the damage it's caused Amy and the loss of life, but the damage to her family but also to my family and also to me."

He also confessed that they were in an East London hotel the first time Winehouse tried heroin: "I might have put up a weak resistance, the fact is whatever I said she did end up having some."
