Re-habitation: £1.8m home helps Amy Winehouse settle back into Camden

Amy Winehouse has returned to her old stomping ground and moved into a £1.8 million house in Camden.
It is only half a mile from her favourite pub, The Hawley Arms. The 27-year-old singer set up home after spending £200,000 installing a recording studio and gym.
Documents lodged at the Land Registry show Winehouse, whose hits include Rehab and You Know I'm No Good, purchased the three-storey, semi-detached property last May. But she only moved in last month after returning from a tour of South America.
Her father Mitchell is also named as an owner of the house, which is in one of Camden's most expensive streets. She purchased it with the help of a mortgage from Coutts, banker to the royal family.
A source told the Evening Standard said she has at least one bodyguard on site 24 hours a day.
Winehouse, the first British singer to win five Grammys in the US, recently started recording again at Abbey Road studios in nearby St John's Wood. She is reportedly planning a housewarming party to coincide with the royal wedding.
