‘But that’s how we were and I could express my love to her, always. She was very protective of me.’

Meanwhile, things took a very emotional turn as Richard recounted the agonising moment he was forced to tell his wife that her daughter had died.

He explained: ‘It was the worst day of my life. I got the phone call to say that Amy had gone. It was actually her cousin, Martin that phoned.

‘I said, “Don’t be silly, we were with her yesterday.” And he said, “No, I’m being absolutely serious.”

‘And then I had to tell Janis. I said, “Janis, I don’t know what to say, she’s gone.” She looked at me and she thought I was talking about my mum, because my mum died a month after Amy – my mum was seriously ill.’

Choking back tears at the memory, he went on: ‘She [Janis] said, “It’s just your mum” and I said, “No, no. Your baby, she’s really gone.” And Jan just stood there.’

Janis then went on to tell of her shock at the heart-breaking news, telling Lorraine: ‘It took time for me, disbelief.’

Meanwhile, Janis and Richard opened up about trying to help Amy battle her demons, but there was only so much they could do as Janis suffers with Multiple sclerosis (MS).

Janis explained: ‘I was limited by what I could do. I live with it. I’m very good, I’ve got it… and? I’m very nonplussed about it.’

‘It was the worst day of my life’: Meanwhile, things took a very emotional turn as Richard recounted the agonising moment he was forced to tell his wife that her daughter had died

Richard then shared: ‘She [Amy] did try, it’s a misrepresentation. The family bent over backwards, but what people seem to forget is that she was a married woman, she was 27, she was living independently, she was wealthy. 

‘People tried to help her, from her management to Mitch to Janis, the family.’

He added: ‘Amy did what Amy wanted to do and that was the bottom line of it. People think she was a very weak character, but she wasn’t. Far from it. She was very, very strong.’

Going on to discussed the foundation set up in the Rehab singer’s memory, Richard said: ‘That’s very, very important to the family. Mitch, his wife Jane – who’s our CEO – work so hard. Unfortunately, because of Janis’ condition we can’t be as involved in it as we’d like…

‘I think we’ve reached out on our drug resilience programme to over 200,000 children around the country with reformed addicts going into schools rather than the policeman or the local teacher. [They say] “This is what happened to me.” The intervention, it’s wonderful.’

While Janis added: ‘It’s done so much good for people. And that’s what it’s about.’

In the film, the star’s mother Janis will tell the story of one of the UK’s greatest musical icons through new parts of her life that the public have never heard about.

Janis said: ‘I don’t feel the world knew the true Amy, the one that I brought up, and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to offer an understanding of her roots and a deeper insight into the real Amy.’

She says in the documentary: ‘You think you know my daughter. The drugs, the drink, the addiction, the destructive relationships. But there was so much more.’

Amy’s parents Janis and Mitch set up the Amy Winehouse Foundation following her death.

They created the charity in honour of the late singer on what would have been her 28th birthday on the 14 September 2011.

Amy soared to fame upon the release of Frank in 2003, as she gained both critical and commercial success with the debut as her jazz-inspired vocals won fans all over before her second album Back To Black’s introduction three years later.

In a heartbreaking turn of fate, the London-born icon’s dazzling career was plighted by her demons after she fell into the clutches of drink and drug addiction.

As she ascended higher on the fame ladder she discovered her demons – in drink, drugs and also eating disorders, which her brother Alex insists contributed to her death. 

In 2011, an inquest gave a verdict of misadventure after finding that she had 416mg of alcohol per decilitre in her blood. A second inquest in 2013  confirmed that she died of accidental alcohol poisoning.

Reclaiming Amy airs on BBC Two at 9pm on Friday 23rd July.
