Doubts over weekend slot as singer goes into rehab

Amy Winehouse has entered drug rehab, it has been announced today (August 15).

The star has been moved to a treatment facility after she was treated in hospital for an overdose last week.

According to The Sun, the singer has been admitted to the Causeway rehab centre in Essex, a remote £10,000-a-week retreat.

Reports elsewhere had suggested that Winehouse had flown to the USA to undertake drug treatment, but it is now believed that she has remained in the UK, at Causeway, which is located on a private island off the coast.

The reports casts fresh doubts on the likelihood of Winehouse turning up for her scheduled appearances at the V Festival this weekend (August 18 and 19).

However, no cancellation announcement has been made.
