Sarah Harding has urged Amy Winehouse to leave London.
The Girls Aloud singer is planning to move out of the UK capital herself and believes the troubled 'Rehab' star should do the same.
Sarah - who currently lives in trendy North London district Camden - told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "I can't wait to get out of London. I just hate being back there now. It brings back so many unhappy memories.
"I'm looking for a new place in Buckinghamshire. It's lovely around there. I think the Camden thing had its time and you have to move on.
"It could do Amy good to get out of there and get a fresh start and perspective. I love Amy. She's a good girl. I'll look out for her, but I'm sure she'll be fine."
Both Amy's husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, and father Mitch have also advised the 24-year-old singer to leave her current Camden home.
Blake - who was sentenced to 27 months in jail last week for grievous bodily harm (GBH) and perverting the course of justice - believes the only way he and Amy can quit drugs for good is to move away from the temptations that currently surround them.
Mitch said: "Blake totally gets it. He said to me, 'We can't carry on living in London. We need to move out to the country.'
"If they do, they could have the most fantastic life together, with the full blessing of my family. Whatever happens, we won't be where we are now in two years."
Amy was hospitalised this week amid reports she had taken an accidental drugs overdose. However, Mitch insisted his daughter had mixed up the prescription medication she is taking to beat her addictions.
