Hellraiser singer Amy Winehouse almost died in her ex-husband’s arms following a three day heroin and crack binge, can reveal.

Blake Fielder Civil, 27, made the shocking allegations that the singer’s eyes went blank and she had a fit before she passed-out and stopped breathing.

“It was nearly mid-night and I had got her up stairs. We were sitting on the bed talking – her eyes just suddenly went blank,” he told The Sun newspaper in Great Britain. “She started having a fit on the bed – she slid down on to the floor before I could stop her – she started quivering again and it suddenly grew into what seemed like a full-blown epileptic fit.”

Fielder-Civil claimed he then pulled his wife’s tongue out of her mouth so she would not bite it, opened her mouth so she would not bite it and breathed air down her throat.

He added: “I held her to me – and I thought she was dying in my arms… I couldn’t bear for her to die in front of me.”

The 25-year-old 'Back To Black' singer had started a drink and drugs binge three days earlier in a pub near Heathrow to celebrate the success of her album.

Winehouse was rushed to London University College Hospital where she was put on a drip after collapsing in the E.R.

Fielder-Civil who divorced the singer this month on grounds of adultery revealed the episode was “the most frightening thing I had ever seen.”

He had been taking heroin and crack too and was trying to get his wife to go to bed as she had not slept in three days.

Although he served jail time during their marriage he claims that he tried to quit drugs when they were together.

“She had everything going for her – but she ended-up behaving badly just to shock – after a while that just becomes a bore. I wanted her to stop,” he said. “Amy is a fun girl. She’s quite wild, but it’s only on drink and drugs with her – it’s just a shame because she is very funny, clever and she’s very loving.”
