Charles Bronson already has grand first day planned once he's released from prison
| Last updated
Notorious prisoner Charles Bronson knows exactly how he's going to spend his first hours of freedom if he's released from prison following his latest bid for parole.
The 70-year-old convict, who has spend almost 50 years behind bars for a series of crimes, is set to learn whether he will walk free when a parole board announces its decision later this week.
Bronson has argued that he should be given a chance to live beyond the confines of the prison walls, and he's told his ex-wife Irene Dunroe that's he's confident in his chances.
He expects to be subject to an electronic tag and a curfew, according to Dunroe, but that hasn't stopped Bronson from thinking about everything he'll be able to do on the outside world.
The convict previously told the parole board that he dreams of 'walking on grass', seeing art shows and going swimming.
"Give me a chance, a break, to prove to you people that I am just a normal geezer wanting to get on with his life," he said.
If given that chance, Dunroe has now claimed that Bronson is going to leave prison in style.
Speaking to The Mirror, she said: "A Bentley car is going to come and pick him up when the day comes.
"It’s going to take him straight to the greasiest spoon cafe he can find so he can have a double breakfast of everything."
Dunroe hasn't revealed exactly where this greasiest of greasy spoons will be located, but she made clear that we're talking 'double sausage' AND 'double egg'.
She also recalled how she and Bronson had joked about making himself more at home when it comes time to go to bed on the outside world, by living in her garden shed.
“I said, ‘I can lock you in every night and let you out in the morning so you feel more at home’," she joked.
Bronson was just 22 when he was first jailed in 1974 for armed robbery and wounding.
During his time in prison he became notorious for carrying out attacks on staff members and other inmates.
Now at 70 years old, Dunroe has argued Bronson's violence came about because he was 'getting violently treated'.
“He has got stab wounds all over his back, one attack he was on life support, he was going to die," she said.
"He has got to get out. In these last years he hasn’t had any violent treatment and he has behaved.
"He is not going to cause any trouble. He’s too old.”
