Blakes hops on the trans-gender express

It’s customary that every now and again something slightly off the wall dribbles its way out of the Winehouse world and into the tabloid press. Usually it’s related to drugs, or Amy's sub-Sid and Nancy relationship with Blake Fielder-Civil. This time it's Blake who’s making the headlines though, by getting physical with a transsexual, and a pre-op one to boot.

According to The Sun Wino’s on-off lover spent an ‘intimate night’ at a London Travelodge with 17-year-old Mia McHugh. Blake apparently told her ‘you remind me of my Amy. You’re so beautiful.’ That would have been music to the her ears, given that she idolises Winehouse and goes out of her way to mimic her style. You can judge how successful she is here.

‘He introduced me to his pals as his new girlfriend,’ said Mia. ‘Within minutes he was snogging me at the pool table, but he had no idea of my transsexual background. He was taking cocaine in the toilets and would come out rubbing his nose. It was bizarre. I was nervous, but I liked him, so I just went along with it. Then he took me to the hotel.

‘We played games of dare and ended up kissing and mucking about. I was lying there and his hands were all over me. Then he suddenly realised. He stopped, looked at me, and said, 'Are you a transsexual?’ I told him yes and he just smiled. He kept asking me questions about it - he was fascinated with my Adam's apple - and I was besotted with him.’

This is probably not the sort of thing you’d want coming out, especially seeing as travelling up to Sheffield for dodgy hotel romps was in breach of his prison licence (not to mention the coke allegations). Not that Winehouse seemed to mind that Blake was dinging a tranny behind her back. She said in a taped conversation; ‘I want to thank you. I mean it, thank you, because I haven't been around. You're a beautiful girl. But Blake and I are best friends - we're the same person. He loves someone else and there is only one me.’

There’s got to be a sitcom in this....
