Winehouse returns to St Lucia

Amy Winehouse has returned to the Caribbean after spending just 33 days back in her native Britain.

The singer first jetted to the idyllic island of St Lucia in December for a sunshine break following a turbulent year of hospital admissions and stints in rehab.

Winehouse's extended holiday stretched to two months, allowing her to kick her addictions for good and work on her new album before finally returning to London at the beginning of March.

But after spending just over a month in the UK to move into a new home in the suburbs, the singer has flown back to St Lucia, boarding a plane at London's Gatwick airport on Thursday.

It is thought the star will continue work on her new album ahead of a planned gig at the island's 18th annual jazz festival on May 8.
