Amy Winehouse 'Died After Watching YouTube Clips Of Herself'

An inquest into the singer's death was reheard this week

Amy Winehouse spent her final hours watching YouTube videos of herself while binging on alcohol, it was revealed during a second inquest into her death.

The 'Love's A Losing Game' singer was found dead at her north London home in July 2011 after drinking several bottles of vodka.

A second inquest, held on Monday at St Pancras Coroners Court, confirmed that Amy died from alcohol poisoning and was five times over the drink-drive limit. Amy's live-in security guard Andrew Morris told the court that the 27-year-old showed him YouTube videos of a man she had dated in the past.

Morris also claims that she "stayed up in her room watching YouTube clips [of herself]," something which he hadn't seen her do.

After describing Amy as her "usual, bubbly self," Morris went on to add that while the singer had been drinking, he could tell she "wasn't completely drunk."

Morris says he left Amy at 2:30am on July 23, and went to check on her at 10am when he saw her lying face-down on her bed, fully clothed.

Believing that she was sleeping, Morris left but when he returned to her bedroom at 3pm, he realised something was wrong when she was still in the same position. Paramedics arrived shortly after but Amy was pronounced dead at the scene.

Meanwhile, Amy's private GP Christina Romete revealed the singer had begun drinking again three days prior to her death because she felt "bored."

Romete also claims that Amy "specifically said she did not want to die."

The verdict comes as Amy's father, Mitch Winehouse, has blasted the coroners as "idiots" for bundling the original inquest, after the first coroner hired his wife as an assistant, despite the fact that she didn't have the necessary qualifications to rule over the case.

Expressing his feelings on Twitter over the verdict, Mitch tweeted on Wednesday: "Thanks for your kind messages today. The idiots at the coroners office f**ked up but we are fine."
