Amy Winehouse's father used to worry she would die ''every night.''
Mitch Winehouse lived in constant fear that the singer - who died at home in London last July aged 27 - would fall victim to her wild lifestyle.
He said: ''Every night I'd go to bed with the phone next to me. I couldn't sleep with my wife, Jane - and I was thinking to myself, 'Tonight's the night - she's going to die tonight' and the phone would ring, and I'd go, 'Yeah? Yeah?' and Amy would say, 'Daaad, when you come around tomorrow...' And I'd say, 'Amy, it's three o'clock in the morning!' Or security would ring and say, 'She's out and there's a problem,' and bang, I'm gone, I'm in the cab, I'm away, I'm there.''
Because he devoted so much time to looking after his daughter, Mitch didn't fully get to appreciate how talented she was until after her passing.
He told Radio Times magazine: ''I always knew she was a good singer, but I was so busy running after her and pulling her out of trouble and telling her off and taking her here, there and everywhere.
''One of the things I didn't know about her was what an incredible genius she was, which is strange - because I'm her dad, so I should know that, shouldn't I?''
''Because I was so close to her, I didn't fully get it - and now, unfortunately, it's taken Amy's passing for me to understand that.''
