Gary Glitter ‘treated like royalty’ in hostel and ‘has meals delivered to room’

Newly-freed pop paedophile Gary Glitter is being treated like “royalty” in his new bail hostel, sources have claimed.

Glitter, 78, was yesterday (Friday, February 3) released from prison having served half of his 14-year sentence in HMP The Verne in Dorset.

He was found guilty of the abuse of three young girls in 2015.

He was initially jailed in Vietnam after being convicted of committing obscene acts with two girls, aged 10 and 11 a few years prior, but the sex offender was later released and deported to the UK, and was convicted of attempted rape, four counts of indecent assault, and one of having sex with a girl under the age of 13.

Glitter, who was one of music's biggest stars in the 1970s, has been fitted with a GPS tag to monitor his movements and will also be on the sex offenders' list for life.

But it now appears his newly-found freedom is going pretty well for him at an undisclosed location – which is apparently near 10 different schools.

According to sources, Glitter has regular meals taken to him by staff, and the hostel has a garden with football posts, a gym and a smoking area.

However, it appears his new room mates are less than pleased about him being there.

A source said: “There's lifers in the hostel and they are angry Glitter is in there.

“Glitter is very happy – he's talking to people.

“He’s upbeat, and he needs to interact with people to get a chance to be released.

“He won't be going anywhere outside for a while – other people did not get escorted into here and treated like royalty like he is being.

“It's caused a lot of upset.”

The 78-year-old is on a strict nightly curfew, can not do any work without approval from officials and is barred from leaving the UK.

He is also banned from speaking to the media.
