Next month marks 10 years since the passing of singer Amy Winehouse.

Aged just 27, the Grammy winner died at her home in London from accidental alcohol poisoning, after years of battling alcohol and drugs in the public eye that began as synonymous with her image as her music. 

Now a new book is marking a decade since her passing and aims to shine a new light on the real Amy Winehouse.

Her best friend and confidant Tyler James has written down their shared story in My Amy: The Life We Shared. He joined Francesca Rudkin to discuss the Amy he knew and why he has decided to share their story.
