So here’s a completely normal story involving the Pete Doherty and the ghost of Amy Winehouse.

According to friends The Libertines and Babyshambles singer believes that he’s being haunted by the late singer.

"He is utterly convinced that he has seen her ghost,” a mate told The Sun.

“A lot of people will think his visions are probably drug-induced by he claims he is clean."

Apparently Pete is so disturbed by the apparition that he’s fled to France and won’t return, fearing that Amy’s spirit is residing at his London home. Ah yes, ghosts do have problems crossing the Channel.

Not that we’re suggesting that the straight-as-an-arrow Mr Doherty isn’t being haunted by the ghost of the late, great Amy Winehouse, oh no; but if she was floating around London town wouldn’t there be better places for her to visit than Pete’s house? We bet it stinks of BO and old fags.

Have you seen the ghost of Amy Winehouse? Maybe Derek Acorah can investigate. (Derek if you’re reading this, that was a joke, please don’t.)
