Mitch Winehouse sleeps easier since his daughter Amy died.

The showbiz patriarch admits he feels guilty that a part of him is relieved that he is no longer constantly having to worry about the singer, who died last July following a drinking binge.

He said: "In a way, subconsciously, it's a relief that I don't have to keep checking up on Amy.

"I'm not going through pain every night, wondering if she is going to die, what she's doing, or if she is in trouble.

"There was a time in the midst of her drug addiction when she could have died on several occasions and I was always worried about her.

"So, in a way, it's a little bit of guilt - on my behalf - because I am able to sleep at night now."

Mitch, 60, is still struggling to come to terms with Amy's death and even still sends her text messages.

He told Grazia magazine: "Sometimes I text her telling her to come home. But she's never coming home and I'm going to have to deal with that for the rest of my life."

    That's a pretty shocking statement to make, but you really can't blame the guy for feeling that way
    her music is still terrible, just because she's dead doesn't make me feel any different about her music.
    that's not the proper way to look at it.. she obviously needed someone to reach out to her. -_- "i sleep better not worrying about her" kinda makes it seem like she was a guilty burden, a true father would not have said that about his child. i'm not a father myself just yet, but growing up with an ***** dad, things like this really hit home to me.
