Amy Winehouse rushed to hospital after 'reaction to medication'

Amy Winehouse has been hospitalised after she suffered a 'reaction to medication'.

The troubled singer was rushed to the accident and emergency unit at University College hospital in London last night after her father, Mitch, called an ambulance when his daughter started having a fit.

The Back to Black singer was brought out of her Camden flat in a wheelchair, wrapped in a blanket and given oxygen.

According to a spokesman for Winehouse, the singer had suffered a reaction to medication she was taking to keep her off hard drugs.

'Doctors have advised that she will be kept under observation overnight and is likely to be released tomorrow,' said her rep Chris Goodman.

A spokesman at University College hospital said Winehouse was in a stable condition and medics would make a decision whether to discharge her today.

Turbulent times continue for the soul singer who is being treated for crack cocaine addiction and also suffering from emphysema – which caused her collapse and be admitted to hospital last month as well.

Her father Mitch Winehouse spoke in June about his daughter's hospitalization saying: 'The doctors have told her if she goes back to smoking drugs it won't just ruin her voice, it will kill her.'
