A couple has pleaded guilty to selling drugs to Amy Winehouse in order to orchestrate the infamous video of the star allegedly smoking crack, which they then sold to The Sun newspaper.

Johnny Blagrove and Cara Burton admitted in a London court today (October 31) that they offered Winehouse cocaine and ecstasy, after which they filmed the singer without her consent. They then proceeded to sell the images to The Sun, which published the images in January, as previously reported.

The prosecutor in the case said that when police raided the couple's home, they found a list of celebrities they supplied with drugs, including Winehouse, reports the Associated Press.

Blagrove and Burton are due to return to court on November 28 to be sentenced.
