Like the rabid pack of paparazzi tracking her every nasal dusting, an opportunist team from Beattie Communications was hot on her trail.
The agency's London office took advantage of the 200-odd crowd gathered outside Holborn Police Station to carry out mass guerrilla sampling of Chupa Chups lollies - one of the agency's clients. Chupa Chups are actually a favourite of Winehouse herself, who obviously loves the odd sugar rush.
Amy, 24, voluntarily attended the station to be questioned over an incident alleged to have taken place early last Wednesday.
Rumours that lollipop-loving Telly Savalas conducted the interview are yet to be confirmed.
