Winehouse no show a worry

A U.K. festival organiser has been forced to put a back-up plan in motion in case AMY WINEHOUSE cancels her appearance at the last minute.

The troubled Back To Black hitmaker scrapped her performance at French music festival Rock En Seine in Paris last week just hours before she was due to take to the stage.

The star cited illness as the reason she had to miss the event and she could face legal action from the festival's bosses who had to deal with disgruntled fans expecting to see the singer.

And now, organisers of the Bestival festival on Britain's Isle Of White this weekend (05-07Sep08) have admitted they have already arranged another headliner to step in if Winehouse fails to appear at show as scheduled.

Bestival creator DJ ROB DA BANK tells fans in his online blog, "Regarding Amy, simply, I do not have any more info. I am in contact with her agent and manager and we'll know what's happening after the weekend.

"If she can't do the gig, rest assured I do have a very good back-up plan.

Have we ever let you down?"
