Amy Winehouse honoured by stage school

Amy Winehouse will be posthumously honoured for her career when bosses at her former stage school name her their most successful ever pupil.

The tragic singer spent her teenage years honing her craft as a student at the Brit School in London, where other former pupils include Leona Lewis, Adele, and Price Tag hitmaker Jessie J.

Teachers at the school are celebrating its 20-year anniversary this week (begs19Sep11) - and Winehouse has been named its biggest success story after research showed her hit album Back to Black was the most popular record by an ex-student.
