Amy Winehouse was found dead at her home in Camden, north London on Saturday afternoon.

Reports suggest the singer, who had battled alcohol and drug addiction, went on a 36-hour drinking spree the day before her death, consuming a mix of Class A drugs and alcohol following a heated row with her on-off boyfriend of one year, 34-year-old film director Traviss. 

The troubled singer reportedly  had an "obsessive" personality when it came to drugs, alcohol and food. 

It is reported the singer's bodyguard checked in on her at 10 am but it wasn't until in the mid afternoon that she was discovered by her ex-housemate and friend Tyler James who found the 27-year-old singer death.

Over the past  years the singer's father Mitch Winehouse had desperately tried to get his daughter who battled addiction into the same rehab clinic which helped Russell Brand shortly before her death, according to reports. 

Chip Somers, the head of a rehabilitation centre,  said Mr Winehouse fought relentlessly in a bid to help Amy beat her addiction. "Unfortunately, money often protects you from the consequences of drug use. It can help buy people out of trouble," he said. "Addiction affects people irrespective of wealth, power or position."The death of any addict is very sad.

In a tribute to Winehouse, Russell Brand said that without the help of Mr Somers and Focus 12 he may also have been killed by addiction.

Winehouse, who shot to fame in 2003 with her debut album Frank, reportedly thought she'd die young and join the member of the '27 Club' whose members are comprised of famous musicians including Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain who all died at the age of 27. 

Her death came after she cancelled a string of comeback gigs.

Family spokesman Chris Goodman said the private service for family and close friends will be held Tuesday at an undisclosed location.

The service, expected to be held in north London this afternoon, will be for "family and close friends" only.

After Amy's death was announced on Saturday evening, Back To Black was top of the iTunes charts on Sunday morning.

Meanwhile, the singer's father Mitch is reportedly planning a memorial concert in honour of his daughter.
