Evil Tracey Connelly wants to shack up with her boyfriend – a 37-year-old insurance salesman called Paul – when she is released from prison.
Connelly has told fellow lags she will apply for parole towards the end of the year.
And sources at HMP Low Newton in County Durham said the 35-year-old had been “swooning about” corridors, telling “everyone she can” about her beau.
She has also boasted about her plans to move in with him “away from the nastiness of the past”.
In 2008, Connelly was caged indefinitely after she admitted causing or allowing the death of her son.
She stood by while he was tortured by her lover Steven Barker and his brother Jason Owen, who were convicted of the same offence. Connelly was released on licence in 2013 but recalled to jail the following year after selling indecent images of herself online to perverts turned on by her notorious past.
However, she insists her new relationship is the real thing, sources claimed.
An insider said: “It is something to see.
“She certainly isn’t shy of shouting about her new love.”
“She’s telling everyone around how she knows it’s the real deal because she knew him before she knew Steven (Barker).
“I want to move on”
“She said she knows he won’t be with her because of her notoriety.
“The sad thing is when she was released last time she had loads of weirdos getting in contact with her, turned on by what she was imprisoned for. It makes you sick.
“But she’s saying she knows this Paul, and he knows her from before. Tracey was overheard telling people that Paul knows she is a ‘good person’ deep down and knows she isn’t this evil character people make her out to be. She is deluded.”
Baby Peter died aged 17 months in 2007 after suffering more than 50 injuries at home in Haringey, North London, despite more than 60 visits from social workers and police.
Connelly is barred from face-to-face meetings with her other children but she has been encouraged to write to them to show prison bosses she has changed.
Our insider continued: “She is basically willing to do whatever it takes to be let out. She wants out, and she wants out soon.
“She is eligible to apply for parole this year – towards the end of the year. She could be out by Christmas and is trying to keep her nose clean in the hopes that they can see she is a changed woman.
“Tracey’s long running theme is that she’s the victim. She takes no responsibility for Peter’s death, telling people it was out of her hands. It was the same when she was recalled – she said she was trying to make ends meet and this was her only way of making money.
“It is her hope that by showing she is in a stable relationship parole chiefs will see she is changed, see she has somewhere already set up to go and start a new life and she should be able to keep out of trouble.
“Who knows if they will buy it?”
