Rose West’s affair with Myra Hindley is set to be exposed by former inmate pals in a television show.
The serial killers fell for each other while they were both locked up at HMP Durham in the mid-90s.
A source on the show said: “After West was put into the same wing as Hindley, they grew close and fell for each other. They bonded over how similar their crimes were. It was a match made in hell.
“Former prisoners who served time alongside them both have agreed to speak on camera about what they witnessed. It will give viewers new insights into two of the most despicable criminals ever known in Britain.”

West’s former lawyer Leo Goatley revealed the affair when he published a book last year. He said: “I recall that Rose was quite taken with Hindley, impressed by her knowledge.
“Rose said Hindley had studied various Open University courses. She said, ‘Yeah, Myra, she’s all right. We get on, I want to see how it goes.’”
But within months the relationship fell apart and West later moaned Hindley was manipulative and dangerous.
The one-off special is also set to detail how West and Hindley behaved towards others inside.

A source said: “Hindley continued to manipulate people from behind bars, just as she deceived the children she abducted, even persuading a nun turned prison guard to help her escape.
“Meanwhile West continued to demand favours of her children, and tried to control their lives from behind bars and she still displays terrifying flashes of rage.”
West, now 66, was found guilty with husband Fred of murdering at least 10 women and girls, including her daughter.
Hindley, who died in 2002, and Ian Brady killed five children in the 1960s. Both women were sentenced to whole life terms.
