Rainy Winehouse
Amy on stage at Bestival

Another day, another dodgy picture of a bedraggled AMY WINEHOUSE.

This time the singer was snapped on stage at Bestival, this weekend, but looked like she could barely stand up.

Amy had arrived on stage to unwelcoming boos from fans after showing up 40 minutes late and the crowd were left further disappointed when the troubled singer was forced to cut her 80 minute show in half because of her late arrival.

But some fans were delighted that the frail looking singer had bothered to show up at all after several other headline acts had cancelled their performances, blaming the torrid British rain.

Amy performed hit tracks You Know I'm No Good and Rehab during her 40 minute slot at the Isle Of White festival.

Singer GRACE JONES also made a surprise appearance on Saturday with a rain-sodden set, as did reformed ska act THE SPECIALS, who played their first gig in 27 years.

Revellers' spirits had been dampened on Friday after a three-hour downpour forced organisers to close the BBC Introducing Stage, thereby cancelling sets from SAM SPARRO, LYKKE LI and BLACK KIDS.

But festival chief ROB DA BANK remained adamant the outdoor event had its highlights.

Da Bank tells British music mag, NME: "Obviously people are going to moan about the rain but I've been to enough muddy Glastonburys to know that things always come good in the end.

"I've had loads of people come up to me and say this is actually the best Bestival they've ever been to. Onwards and upwards!"
