Gallstones halt Amy's dad's tour

Mitch Winehouse has had to cancel his tour plans

Amy Winehouse's dad Mitch has had to shelve his tour after being diagnosed with gallstones, it has been announced.

The cabbie turned swing crooner is to undergo keyhole surgery this weekend after he was taken ill.

Daughter Amy has been rallying to his aid this week, bringing him her own home-made chicken soup to the London hospital where he was being treated.

Mitch cancelled the first night of his tour on Monday in Edinburgh and has been unable to perform any further shows since.

Now he has had to postpone the gigs, although promoters are aiming for new dates next month.

Mitch - who released his debut album Rush Of Love in June - became ill while on holiday in Spain and received treatment before flying home. Earlier this week doctors thought he was suffering from gastro-enteritis.

A spokesman said: "He'll be back on his feet soon and we are hoping to reschedule the dates for next month."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
