Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Amy Winehouse is to fly a faith healer to the UK from St Lucia in a bid to help her overcome her addictions. Winehouse met Peter Hippolyte while holidaying on the Caribbean island earlier this year, and he has explained that he’s coming to England to help the singer. “We hug each other and I put my hands on her shoulder. I tell her not to worry and we sing to each other,” Hippolyte said of his work with Winehouse. “When I come to the UK, I will use my hands to help heal her and use my psychological healing to organise her mind. We will say prayers together and she will drink bush tea with antioxidants” (Heat).
