Singer to check into South African clinic

Troubled Amy Winehouse is set to check back into rehab in a bid to finally conquer her demons.

The singer is thought to have told friends that she can’t handle being in London and needs further help.

‘Amy has admitted she needs to check into rehab again,’ a pal says.

‘There are too many temptations for her in the UK — people around her in London are making it impossible for her to stay clean for any length of time.

‘Her management had considered flying her to a clinic in Israel but are now looking further afield. They are assessing a clinic in Cape Town in South Africa,’ the friend tells The Sun.

In January Amy, 24, sought help at London’s Capio Nightingale clinic following a leaked video of her smoking crack cocaine.

Yesterday she was photographed with sores and scabs on her face – said to be caused by impetigo – as she was visited by Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty, 29, at her Camden flat.
