Mitch Winehouse - Amy Winehouse still speaks to her father

Mitch Winehouse still speaks to his late daughter, Amy.

The showbiz patriarch - who lost the 'Valerie' singer to accidental alcohol poisoning in July 2011 - has admitted he can still sense that his daughter is close by and hears her words of encouragement whenever he takes to the stage.

He told The Sun newspaper: ''She's standing next to me, every time I go out on that stage.

''She's there all right, I feel her, sense her.

''She's in here now saying, 'Just get on with it, Dad'. I'm always speaking to her, all day, every day.''

Mitch also explained that Amy - who died aged just 27 at her North London home- was ''angry'' over her passing at first but has now become more settled in the after-life.

He said: ''Her passing was a mistake and at first she was very angry and upset -- I could feel that -- but now she's more settled.''

Although Mitch still admits life is still difficult without the 'Back To Black' hitmaker, he believes establishing his charity, the Amy Winehouse Foundation - which trains recovering addicts to go into schools and speak of their experiences - has made him a better man.

He said: ''Before she passed I wasn't very industrious but now I'm a different person. It changed my life. After Amy died, I wanted to do something that mattered, which is how the Amy Winehouse Foundation came about. Who would have thought that three years on we would have achieved so much?

''I know Amy is very proud. She would not have wanted us to wallow in grief.''
