Britain’s most notorious prisoner Charles Bronson is “living on the nerves” after an alleged altercation with a fellow inmate in prison.

The notorious prisoner is said to have been involved in an incident with murderer Robert Donaldson at HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, a week ago.

Bronson’s ex-wife Irene Dunroe said she was “disappointed” to hear about it.

Irene, who shares a son with the long-time prisoner, says Bronson “lives on edge, waiting for the next thing to happen.”

She added that he always stayed away from Donaldson.

The mother of three has questioned whether this could impact Bronson’s next parole hearing in March 2025.

Irene, 71, and Bronson, 71, divorced in 1976 but stayed in touch – and met for the first time in 50 years last August.

Irene, an Ann Summers employee from Brimstage, Wirral, Merseyside, said: “I’m disappointed because I’d like to see him out.”

“As far as we’re concerned, we’re still living in the time when he left. I just want peace and serenity for our son – his mother will be disappointed about that too.

“He suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and over the years he never knew who was going to come and pounce on him.”

“When I visited him I reached out to touch him and you would have thought I had burned him the way he reacted, it was very disturbing.”

“He always stayed away from this man.

“He lives on his nerves anyway, just waiting for the next thing to happen to him.”

Before the incident, Irene was confident that Bronson would finally secure his release at his next parole hearing.

She said: “I know he will be really devastated.”

“His parole was next year and it was virtually 99% certain he would get it.”

“He’s been doing well for over six years and I’m disappointed in him – it’s upsetting.”

“We all thought he would do it last time.” Things were looking very good for March next year.

“It’s just a big hiccup.”

Irene visited Bronson in August to speak in person for the first time in nearly five decades after exchanging phone calls and letters.

And last Christmas he showed his affection by sending her a basket – complete with a big gold bow.

But in recent months communication has stalled.

Irene said: “I haven’t spoken to him for a few months as we had a bit of an argument.”

“But that’s totally him – I know what he’s like, he’s very stubborn.

‘I’m sorry. I’m sure we’ll talk again soon.

HM Prison Service declined to comment.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said they had no record of the incident being reported to them.
