A member of The Wanted has claimed that the pop group were the last band to have their picture taken with Amy Winehouse.

Winehouse, who died in 2011, made one of her final public appearances at Camden's Roundhouse venue when she performed with her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield during a support slot for The Wanted at the iTunes Festival. The singer spent time backstage prior to the gig, where the boyband met her and posed for a photograph. "We were the last band to have our picture taken with Amy, Siva Kaneswaran told Metro. "You could tell she loved Dionne so much, it’s just so sad. She just looked like she wanted to sleep and then three days later she was gone."

The Wanted performed at The Roundhouse on July 20, 2011. Amy Winehouse was found dead in her Camden flat three days later on July 23. An inquest confirmed that the singer died as a result of accidental alcohol poisoning. However, Winehouse's brother Alex claimed over the weekend (June 23) that it was his sister's eating disorder that led to her death. Alex Winehouse, the singer's older brother, said that his sister's battle with bulimia, which she developed aged 17, "left her weaker, and more susceptible". He said: "She would have died eventually, the way she was going, but what really killed her was the bulimia."
