Others items that have been included in the auction included a green and black dress which she wore during her last concert in Belgrade in 2011.   

Her performance at the Belgrade Tuborg Festival saw the esteemed singer appear disorientated on stage and she was booed off the stage. Her 18-leg European tour was cancelled and she stayed for a week at The Priory clinic.

The soul singer was found dead in her flat in Camden, north London, less than a month later on July 23, 2011, aged just 27.

Naomi Parry, stylist to the songstress who also designed the number has said: ‘I feel an immense amount of sadness when I look at that dress. It was supposed to be the start of something new and moving forward. She had been doing so well.’
