The pedophile pop star Gary Glitter would have been transferred to a new prison cell nicknamed “paedokabin” on the other hand.
The convicted felon, real name Paul Gadd, is said to be humiliated by his new digs in the grounds of HMP The Verne, near Portland, Dorset.
It has been revealed that the 77-year-old man, who was jailed for sex offenses in 16 years, was placed in the temporary cabin last month in a change to help social distancing in the prison.
The disgraced star’s new surroundings include a bed, shower, sink and toilet.
Speaking of the move, a source said The sun that the convicted criminal “will not take advantage” of his new cell.
“It’s about as grim as it gets. The cabins squeak every time you move around, they smell bad and they’re either too cold or too hot,” they told the publication.
“It’s like sleeping in one of those toilets they put up at music festivals. He won’t take advantage of it at all.”
The disgraced singer is currently serving a 16-year sentence at HMP The Verne in Portland, Dorset, for sex offenses.
The convicted pedophile, who rose to fame as a glam rocker in the 1970s, was put behind bars in 2015 for indecent assault on young girls.
Earlier this year it was claimed he was about to leave his current prison for an open prison.
Having now served seven years of his 16-year sentence, it was alleged over the summer that the governors of The Verne told him he was destined to be transferred to an open prison.
However, there has been no sign of a transfer so far, and Justice Secretary Robert Buckland is believed to have the power to block the proposed transfer.
Talk to Dorset Echo in June, former Big Break host Jim Davidson discussed the disgraceful star’s rehab and how the convicted pedophile apparently has “remorse” for his crimes.
âI spoke to Paul when I visited The Verne two years ago. He has remorse and he seemed ready to start a new life,â Jim said of the jailed 77-year-old.
The Celebrity Big Brother winner’s mention of the jailed pop star came as he discussed the charity he co-founded, Care after Combat.
Bursting onto the music scene in the early 1970s, Gary Glitter has sold over 20 million records and released 26 hit singles that would frequently make the Top Ten on the UK Singles Chart.
His disgrace came in the 1990s, when he was arrested and convicted in 1999 for downloading thousands of child pornography.
After moving and settling in Vietnam, a Vietnamese court found him guilty of obscene acts with minors in 2006.
He was deported to the UK after serving his sentence and entered the sex offender register for life.
In October 2012, as part of Operation Yewtree, the former pop star was arrested again, this time for historical sexual offenses involving children.
On February 5, 2015, he was convicted of attempted rape, four counts of indecent assault and one count of having sex with a girl under the age of 13.
Later that same month, he was sent to prison for a total of 16 years.
