Her scarred arms have already prompted speculation she has been self-harming.

But troubled diva Amy Winehouse went one step further today when she emerged from her house with bleeding scratches.

Wearing a black vest top which revealed a criss cross of scars covering her tattoos, the Rehab singer emerged from home to make a mercy mission to husband Blake in jail.

Open wounds: Amy Winehouse's latest appearance with bleeding scratches has prompted fresh concern

What the incarcerated Mr Fielder Civil, currently locked up in Pentonville Prison, made of his wife's increasingly shambolic appearance can only be imagined.

As well as the bleeding wounds, Amy still seemed to be struggling to control the state of the skin on her face.

She had several areas of angry red spots on her forehead and cheeks and also dry, scaly patches on her chin.

Her agent had put the unsightly rash down to impetigo, a highly contagious condition.

But despite reportedly taking antibiotics to clear it up, the problem does not seem to be improving.

Strings of heavy gold chains, a pair of gaudy hoop earrings and visible bra straps failed to add even a glimmer of sophistication.

The 24-year-old is still receiving treatment for a drug addiction which sparked a spell in a rehab clinic earlier in the year.

She has made a desperate bid to salvage her career with a series of live performances for the Grammy Awards, and last week's Brits.
