With the renewed interest in Amy Winehouse after documentary Reclaiming Amy aired on BBC Two, her father has spoken about unpublished songs from the artist.

Mitch Winehouse spoke to the BBC about her early recording, saying he wanted them to be released despite their audio quality not matching up to her later works.

He said: “We found a few bits and pieces but it is difficult because the CDs are a bit corrupted. But apparently we have been told that we might be able to rescue something.

“I would like Amy’s fans to hear all this stuff so they can see she started there and she ended up there.

“It might not be as good as Back To Black but, from what I have heard from the snippets, it’s good.”

It’s uncertain if Mitch will be able to release the unpublished songs.

The Amy Winehouse documentary focused on the career of the famous singer who passed away a decade ago at just 27 years old.

In the documentary, mother Janis opens up about how she wants to be able to show the world her daughter, instead of "the drugs, addiction and destructive relationships".

Amy’s grandmother Cynthia was a huge influence on the star and after Cynthia passed away, Amy got a pin up girl tattoo on her right shoulder as a tribute.

Mitch said about their relationship: "My mother and I were very close. And of course when Amy was ill my mother wasn't there to help and guide me.

"That’s why mistakes were made because the wise one of the family had gone."

Amy’s best friend Catriona Gourlay says that Cynthia’s death “lit the fuse”.

Speaking about Amy, Catriona said: "Her drinking definitely increased, yes. I think at the time I was more worried about her eating. After that point she was making herself sick all the time,"

Speaking on Amy’s downward spiral, Amy’s friend Chantelle Dusette said: "Seeing your friend slowly kill themselves is as bad as it sounds – terrifying,"

"I mean you’d see someone that thin that looks that unwell, I can’t even express show dark it was. It was frightening for her and everybody."
