Winehouse's father lives in her apartment

Amy Winehouse's father still lives in her London apartment.

Mitch Winehouse revealed he feels closest to his late daughter - who died in July 2011 at the age of 27 - in the small Camden flat where she lived while recording her number one album 'Back to Black' and can't bring himself to leave.

He told MailOnline: "One thing we can't let go of is Amy's apartment in Camden...She loved that flat, and we live there now.

"When Amy was running out of money before 'Back to Black' came out, I said, 'Amy, we're going to have to sell the flat', she told me: 'Never sell the flat, Dad. I'm going to bring out a new album, and we're going to make millions.' So I thought we'd hold onto it for another three or four months.

"She loved that flat, and we [Mitch and his wife Jane] live there now."

Mitch and Amy's mother Janis sold the singer's large house in Camden following her death because it was too expensive to keep.

He explained: "Anything linked with Amy is very hard to get rid of, but it was an incredible drain on our resources. We had to have a lot of security there, and it cost us an absolute fortune."
