The fan allegedly punched by Amy Winehouse during her performance at Glastonbury on Saturday says he was ‘shocked’ rather than ‘sore’.

James Gostelow, 25, from London was in the front row for the wayward singer’s performance and appeared to be in receipt of a few haphazard blows when she wandered into the crowd, then took offence at something.

Gostelow told BBC Online that it was a case of mistaken identity.

“I saw a hat being thrown from behind me and it hit Amy’s beehive. She looked down, saw me looking up, and her elbow went for me.

“She caught my forehead, then someone may have shouted something from the back, which is when she went in again.”

Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis defended the star, saying she had appeared to lash out after being touched by a fan. However, Gostelow did not see anyone touch the singer and said he was ‘shocked’ rather than sore.

He has no intention of making a complaint to police.

“Not everyone can say they have been hit by Amy Winehouse. I just want to shake the person who threw the hat.”
