Amy Winehouse will appear on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ on Saturday.

The ‘Back to Black’ singer will sing backing vocals for her 13-year-old goddaughter, Dionne Bromfield, who Amy has signed to her new record label Lioness.

Dionne said: “Amy and I both love ‘Strictly’ so it was brilliant to find out I'll be on TV for the first time singing on one of my favourite shows.”

The pair are going to sing The Shirelles 1961 hit ‘Mama Said’, which is Dionne’s first single.

Dionne added: “I've known Amy for ever. I'm very close to Amy. She's like my sister.”

Amy, 26, is backing Dionne to be a huge star and insists she is an incredible talent.

She said: “The first time I heard Dionne sing, I couldn't believe what I was hearing - such an amazing voice from such a young girl.

"She's so much better than I was at her age.”
