Amy Winehouse's father Mitch Winehouse is planning to publish a treasure trove of touching handwritten notes from the late singer in his forthcoming autobiography.

Her father is due to release 'Amy, My Daughter' later this month with personal letters, many of which were sent to her dad while she was away on tour.

According to the New York Post one letter reads: "Dear Daddy, I love you so much and can't wait to see you again in a few weeks.

"I'm working, and I haven't spent a penny. A few thousand dollars have gone, but no pennies as such. I'm joking."

The late singer's parents are currently in talks to build a life-size bronze statue of Winehouse at the Roundhouse in Chalk Farm, London.

The venue was where the singer last performed in public with her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield shortly before her death in July last year. The proposed memorial would be placed on the first-floor balcony of the venue.

Winehouse's house was recently put up for sale by her family for £2.7m. The street outside the three-bedroom house in Camden was turned into a shrine for the late singer after her death.

Her relatives have said they placed the house on the market as it would be inappropriate for any of them to move into it. There had been suggestions that the property could be used as the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up in the singer's memory that will fund causes close to the her heart, including a new performing arts scholarship to Sylvia Young Theatre School where she herself went as a teenager.
