In September Daniella Westbrook, 49, shared a video of herself lying between the sheets with ex con Ben – just weeks after confirming she was back with her fiancé David.

She then pans over to Ben who laughs: “The cats out the bag.”

Speaking with the Daily Star about turning his life around following regaining his freedom, Ben said: “I came out with a dream in my head.

"I was going to do a book I was going to do something positive in the world – I came out with the belief that I can change and be a better person and he can too, if he was just given the opportunity.

“I was done for hostage taking,” he admits, “was on top of prison roofs, I was done for violence, I was kicked out of Broadmoor.

“They deemed me high risk. I did nine months segregation for a plot to take lan Brady hostage but I came out and look what I’ve done now; I own a security company now, I am a professional fighter, I’ve gone and worked with kids.

“These 4 letters gave me hope when I was inside – P.T.A.W., prove them all wrong.”
