Amy Winehouse's parents have spoken of their heartbreak over her death.

The 27-year-old singer was found dead at her home in Camden, North London yesterday afternoon (23.07.11) after a suspected drink and drugs overdose and although her Janis and Mitch Winehouse knew their daughter was struggling with addiction, the news has taken them both by surprise.

Janis - who admitted thinking it was "only a matter of time" before her daughter died explained about seeing the 'Rehab' singer the day before her death: "She seemed out if it but her passing so suddenly still hasn't hit me. Amy always said 'I love you mum' when we would say goodbye. They are the words I will always treasure. I'm glad I saw her when I did."

Amy's devastated father Mitch - who was on a plane to New York to prepare for a performance in the city tomorrow (25.07.11) when news of his beloved daughter's demise was revealed - spoke of his heartbreak from the city before getting the first plane back to London.

He said: "This isn't real, I'm completely devastated. I'm getting the next plane back. I'm coming home. I have to be with Amy.

"I can't crack up for her sake. My family need me. I'm devastated, it's such a shock."
