Amy Winehouse’s family and boyfriend are taking a ten-day holiday to mourn the singer.

Dad Mitch, stepmum Jane and brother Alex decided to take the trip to come to terms with Amy’s death out of the spotlight.

They have also invited her boyfriend Reg Traviss, 35, who Amy is rumoured to have been secretly engaged to.

The family want to get away from Camden, North London, where fans have made a shrine outside the 27-year-old’s former home following her death last month.

A source told The Sun: "The family feel they want to grieve properly out of the limelight.

"Being in Camden constantly is proving too painful for them. They need time to themselves."

But the source said it would be about remembering Amy in a positive way. "They will celebrate Amy's life and share their most treasured stories of her."

The trip will happen at the same time as a family friend’s wedding abroad, which the Winehouses will attend with Traviss.

The source added: "Mitch thought they may as well still go and use it as an opportunity to have a proper break. They are drained."

Amy's mum, Janis will remain in London.
