Troubled British singer Amy Winehouse has returned to her native Britain after an eight-month break in the Caribbean.

The Back to black hitmaker fled to St Lucia in December last year in a last-ditch bid to conquer her drink and drug addictions before briefly returning to Britain in March, dailystar.co.uk reported.

She was back on the paradise isle within weeks and spent the following four months relaxing in the sun, partying, and riding horses.

The singer has finally returned to her place, arriving alone at London's Gatwick Airport where she broke down in tears as she was met by her driver and personal assistant.

"Amy looked tired but happy to be home. She got a bit tearful when she met up with her driver and PA because she hasn't seen them for so long, but other than that she seemed to be in good spirits," said an onlooker.

Winehouse is due to appear in court in London later this month to answer a charge for punching an autograph hunter at a party last September.
