Lily felt late singer's presence

Lily Allen thinks Amy Winehouse was with her when she worked in a studio the late singer had made music in.

During a recording session, Lily sensed that Amy – who died in July 2011 from alcohol poisoning aged 27 – still had a presence in the room.

Mark Ronson and I worked in the studio where he’d worked with Amy Winehouse,’ says Lily, 28.

‘I felt her ghost was there. I felt so untalented in comparison.’

Even in less intimidating circumstances Lily often doubts her abilities when she’s trying to write songs.

‘I find songwriting nerve-wracking,’ the mum-of-two tells Event Magazine.

‘I feel anxious about whether it sounds silly, whether I’m good, whether I’m worth all the fuss.

‘I feel a fraud and that I’m about to get found out.’
