Amy Winehouse has flown a faith healer to the UK to help beat her addictions.

The troubled ‘Rehab’ singer – who has struggled with alcohol and drug abuse - met Peter Hippolyte while living on the Caribbean island of St Lucia and was so impressed by him, she asked him to come to London to help stop her partying.

Peter’s sessions involve drinking tea, singing and laying his healing hands upon her body.

He told Britain’s Heat magazine: "We hug each other, we kiss each other and I put my hands on her shoulder. I tell her not to worry and we sing to each other.

"When I come to the UK, I will use my hands to help heal her and use my psychological healing to organise her mind. We will say prayers together and she will drink bush tea with antioxidants."

Amy, 26, is said to be delighted with Peter’s work and is arranging to see him again soon.

He added: "I have healing hands and I talk to her and explain things to her. She's a wonderful girl and she believes in me. I am coming back to England to help her."
