Amy's new waxwork unveiled

A waxwork of singer Amy Winehouse has been unveiled at Madame Tussauds in London.

The model was constructed using photos and images taken from her live performances and sports the star's trademark beehive hairdo and old school tattoos.

Amy's parents, Mitch and Jan, were present when the waxwork was uncovered, describing it as an "incredible likeness", but Mitch added that "she's not that skinny anymore".

He even joked that the new version was less unlikely to display the notoriously erratic behaviour of his daughter.

"We're going to take this one home with us and take the real one back. This one does what she's told and doesn't move," he said.

He went on to say that Amy is currently undergoing a drug replacement programme and added that she is "doing really well".

Amy's husband, Blake Fielder-Civil has just been sentenced to 27 months in prison for assault and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
