Amy Winehouse was at school with Billie Piper

School pal releases photo of stars Amy Winehouse was a happy 14-year-old schoolgirl.She attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School in London's Marylebone at the same time as actress Billie Piper.'I wouldn't be so presumptuous as to give her advice as she battles her demons,' Billie, 25, tells the Sunday Mirror. 'She has to work things out for herself. But I hope she has people around her who take care of her.'I love Amy – I hope there's a happy ending, particularly because she is so talented.'Her lyrics are so painful and angst-ridden, beautifully written, well-observed stuff. She's a very clever musician.'In a snap taken 10-years-ago by pal Gem Allen, Amy grins at the camera, her eyes twinkling and her hair falling about her shoulders as she dives into the shot.It looks like a different person to the gaunt figure pictured by the paparazzi now.'I wouldn't have predicted she would go as wild as this,' Gem tells the Daily Mail.'Some pictures of her now are heartbreaking.'Amy was a character at school. She was a wild girl but it was different from the trouble she's in now.'Amy - whose husband Blake Fielder-Civil is on remand in Pentonville prison - flew to Barbados on Friday and then took a private plane to Mustique to stay at Bryan Adams' luxury home on the exclusive island.
