Mitch Winehouse goes back to driving cab

Mitch Winehouse goes back to work for the first time since his daughter’s death.

It’s been three months since his daughter’s death at the age of just 27.

But today Amy Winehouse’s father Mitch bravely swallowed his grief and went back to work.

The 60-year-old looked pained as he drove his black cab in central London, but still managed a smile for his passengers.

Earlier this month the crooner announced plans to pen a memoir of Amy, who battled with addictions to drink and drugs.

The proceeds of the publication will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity Mitch set up in the Rehab singer’s name.

His decision to write the book so soon after Amy’s death has drawn criticism however.

The taxi driver took to his Twitter account to assure her fans that all proceeds will go to the charity to help ‘ooo’s of kids’.

He also wrote: ‘I also need to write the book as a part of my recovery. For those people that don’t like it. Tough!’.

The Amy Winehouse foundation was officially launched last month on what would have been the singer’s 28th birthday.

Amy was found dead in her North London home on July 23.

I personally don’t know Mitch but I wish him the best of luck and good luck with his charity work and book.
