Winehouse badly burned in kitchen accident

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse has landed herself in hot water - she has suffered severe scalds after a cooking blunder.

The star decided to hold a dinner party for her pals on the Caribbean isle of St Lucia, where she has spent much of the last four months working on a new album.

But trouble began brewing in the kitchen after a huge pan of boiling water full of pasta fell from the cooker, dousing the singer in scalding water.

She has since been snapped with burns on her legs, and has left fellow holidaymakers aghast by failing to cover and care for her injuries.

A fellow tourist tells Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Amy's wounds looked so painfully sore - she really should cover them up or get herself under an umbrella.

"They were covered in sand too. We couldn't believe she wasn't keeling over in pain."

However, the star's spokesman insists the wounds are not as bad as they look: "She's not in a lot of pain, she's just letting it breathe."
