A former Coronation Street actress has been accused of getting engaged to notorious prisoner Charles Bronson for a 'publicity stunt'.

Paula Williamson appeared on Good Morning Britain on Monday morning to speak about the relationship.

Paula, 36, was reportedly popped the question by jailbird Bronson, 64, when she visited him at HMP Wakefield on Valentine's Day.

Speaking on the show this morning a shocked presenter Piers Morgan accused her of getting engaged to the criminal - who spends 22 hours a day in solitary confinement - for a 'publicity stunt'.

He said: "You're marrying a man who spends 22 hours a day in solitary confinement. It's a publicity stunt, isn't it? Why else would you get engaged to him?"

She replied: "I wouldn’t get married to Britain’s most notorious prisoner if I was doing it as a publicity stunt."

Former newspaper editor Piers hit back: "Yes you would, it makes perfect sense. You've had bit parts in soap operas.

"There's no other reason, it's complete madness."

But Paula defended herself: "I can understand that, but now I'm branded as Charles Bronson's fiancé."

He immediately retorted: "That's what you want! You sought him out!"

As Susanna asked her if she was "frightened" of her lover, Paula explained: "Charlie is the first to admit he’s done a lot of terrifying things and I’m aware of those things but the Charlie I know isn’t the same person who’s committed those offences.

"He’s made these mistakes but he’s a different character now."

Armed robber Bronson has been behind bars for 41 years after repeatedly having his sentence increased for attacking prison staff and taking them hostage.

Paula, who appeared on Corrie s three times between 2008 and 2012, has known Charles for four years.

She has only met him four times over that period, with the first being in November 2016.
