Winehouse to appear on 'Strictly'

Amy Winehouse will reportedly feature as a backing singer on BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing.

The star will sing alongside her 13-year-old goddaughter Dionne Bromfield towards the end of September.

A source told the Sunday Mirror: "She’ll do anything to help Dionne become a huge success, and Strictly was just too big an opportunity for them to not take.

"Obviously everybody’s extremely nervous about the appearance but the team are confident Amy could make it work and really do some good for Dionne. She’s promised to not mess it up on the night.

"Strictly have made it a priority to sign Amy and will stop at nothing to have her. X Factor have upped their game with the likes of Madonna and Robbie Williams in talks. So bagging Amy would be a real coup."

Bromfield is Winehouse’s new label’s first signing. The Back To Black singer recently revealed that her goddaughter was her best friend.
