In an interview with BBC Radio 1, Amy's father, Mitch Winehouse explained that his daughter has been diagnosed with "traces" of the lung disease emphysema, after being rushed to hospital following a collapse at her home.

He explained "there is a small amount there which is completely repairable, as long as she gives up smoking".
He also warned her circle of drug taking friends and drug dealers to stay away. He said

"I'm saying to those drug dealers, and they know who they are, if they are supplying crack to Amy, then they've got to take responsibility".

He even went as far as to name Amy's close friend and notorious drug taking singer Pete Doherty saying

"I don't want her hanging out with her mates like Pete Doherty either. What hope does she have if people are taking drugs around her?"
