The family of singer Amy Winehouse described her as “a wonderful daughter, sister and niece” after she was found dead at her home on Saturday.

Her father Mitch Winehouse, who lives in Greenhithe, has always stood by the troubled star who has publicly battled alcohol and drug addiction.

Since her death tributes have flooded in for the 27-year-old who shot to fame with the album Frank and the cover of Valerie with Mark Ronson.

In a statement the family of the singer said: “She leaves a gaping hole in our lives. We are coming together to remember her and we would appreciate some privacy and space at this terrible time.”

She made her last public appearance on Wednesday, jumping on stage at The Roundhouse in Camden, North London, with her singer goddaughter Dionne Bromfield, from Chislehurst.

After hearing of her death, the 15-year-old tweeted: “Forever in my you always Amy.”
