Girls Aloud star admires her talent

Amy Winehouse’s father-in-law Giles thinks it’s a good idea for fans to boycott her CDs – and that she should be banned from winning awards – but Girls Aloud have defended the troubled star.

‘I don’t think it will help not giving Amy any awards, and not buying her records,’ Cheryl Cole, 24, tells GMTV.

‘It’s [Back To Black] an amazing album from a very talented singer, and I think she still needs to be recognised for her work.’
