Winehouse wants husband at Glastonbury

Amy Winehouse "can't wait" to perform her headline slot at Britain's Glastonbury Festival - but only if husband Blake Fielder-Civil is in the crowd supporting her.

The troubled 'Back To Black' singer's husband continues to serve time in jail on charges of perverting the course of justice following a London pub brawl last year.

And despite the honour of landing a last-minute spot at the top of the bill for the legendary June festival - leapfrogging former headliner Jay-Z - Winehouse admits she's more focused on having her spouse by her side than any future professional engagements.

She says: "Please God my Blake will be with me, that's all I'm looking forward to."

Winehouse has also offered an insight into the new material she's recording, telling fans they can expect "pretty much the same".
