Amy Winehouse is reportedly set to spend New Year's Eve (31.12.09) in hospital. Worried friends and family of the 'Back To Black' singer have reportedly pleaded with her to seek help after she spent much of the Christmas period drinking heavily alone while battle a chest infection. A source said: "Amy is in a bit of a state at the moment, she's feeling very sad and lonely. She is also extremely emotional. She's spent a lot of time over Christmas at home on her own drinking. "Amy's been battling an acute chest infection for weeks and it's really starting to take a toll on her health. "Amy has wound herself up into such a state she knows her best place for her is in the hospital. She needs to dry out and stop drinking." Pals believe Amy, 26, will listen to their pleas because she is determined to get her life back on track, despite recent setbacks. The singer - who has angered her family by rekindling her romance with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil - reportedly collapsed at home because of her chest infection, which was aggravated by the stress of her recent arrest for common assault at a theatre earlier this month. A friend explained: "The last week has been a massive setback for Amy who was really turning a corner. Everyone in her camp is shocked by what has happened. "But their main concern is making sure she feels better. Then she can throw herself into her music. "The new year isn't getting off to the best start but Amy is determined and she'll keep looking forward."
