Amy Winehouse has fallen off the wagon yet again. In news that won’t come as a shock to anyone, trashy UK magazine People reckons that her third album has been delayed while she is in London’s celebrity rehab clinic, The Priory. According to the un-named source, the ‘Rehab’ singer was knocking back straight vodka on her way to the drying out facility, where she was forced to say ‘yes yes, yes’ to a stint inside.

According to the source, “She has finally finished this ­album and it’s ready to go. They were just about to finalise a release date and then this happened. She is back in rehab for the foreseeable future so it is just a question of waiting and seeing now. But there is no way they can give a specific release date until they know when she is likely to be out.”

Winehouse’s third album is one of the most anticipated in the world and no doubt her record company are throwing up their hands in despair at the news that she’s struggling with the bottle again. She has been making the album for the last three years, but this battle with booze contradicts a recent report in another UK tabloid suggesting that she was going to move out of her Camden Town home in central London and move to the country to get away from booze and drugs.  Her long suffering friend and producer Mark Ronson must be in a constant state of frustration at her inability to keep it together.
