"It’s tough inside ... bloody horrible, but I’m out and that’s all that matters. It’s brilliant. I’m gonna get myself sorted. I’m gonna get my life back ... I’m gonna see my wife and take her knickers down." - Blake Fielder-Civil
With these words, Amy Winehouse's husband reentered society after a year in jail. He was released from prison on the condition that he enter rehab immediately.
Blake Fielder-Civil may have to wait a little longer for the removal of any knickers, as the Back to Black singer can't visit for at least seven days. But it's progress.
Upon his release, he was also in high spirits about world news. Giving the peace sign, he told reporters: "It’s a welcome to the free world for me and Barack Obama. I heard about the U.S. election on the car radio - it’s got to be good news!"
It's great to see Blake Fielder-Civil again. Seriously, guy is pure entertainment.
Although looking well, his arms were covered in scars and what appeared to be fresh scratches. He was due out at Christmas but freed this week by Edmunds Hill Prison, Suffolk, after agreeing to rehab at the Life Works Community centre in Surrey.
Prison Service sources insisted that Blake Fielder-Civil - who had been sentenced to 27 months - was eligible for early release and was not granted special favors.
He is tagged, under curfew and banned from leaving rehab.
