Paedophile Gary Glitter has been accused of “taking the p*ss” after having thousands of pounds worth of goods delivered to his prison cell.
Among his belongings were designer clothes, Bluetooth headphones, an Xbox and a Longines watch, a copy of his autobiography, and a poster of himself – which now sits on his cell wall.
According to The Mirror, his possessions were stored at a hostel the disgraced former star was living at after being freed halfway through a 16-year sentence for abusing girls.

The 79-year-old convict was returned to HMP The Verne on Portland Islands, near Dorest for breaching his licence conditions.
A source told the publication: “It’s a disgrace this was allowed. He was recalled for utterly vile behaviour and is the most hated pervert in Britain.
“He’s a serial child abuser and this should not be happening. His poor victims would rather the belongings be burnt than transported at a cost to the taxpayer just in case he gets bored.”
Tory MP Nigel Mills added: “It’s shocking. This doesn’t feel like a great use of time and effort.”
Other items sent to Glitter in recent weeks include a Diesel grey leather jacket and shirt, Levi’s jeans, Levi’s jacket, a tie, a summer jacket, six hats and beanies, two balaclavas and a copy of legal bestseller The Secret Barrister.
They would have been thoroughly vetted by prison bosses and anything not allowed would have been rejected. The source said Glitter put “serious thought” into what he wanted.

They said: “The list shows he is very vain. He wanted his book there, and a poster. It also shows Glitter still has money and possessions worth a good amount.
"It’s more than the vast majority of prisoners could afford. He’d feel important it was being transferred. His victims and the many impacted by his crimes would be horrified.”

He was freed from the Dorset jail in February but recalled 38 days later when photos emerged of him using a smartphone at his hostel.
Glitter was found to have viewed the footage on YouTube and TikTok of eight-year-olds in ballet clothes. It was also reported the monster had discussed the dark web with others.
Glitter, who sold 18 million records and had three number ones, was first jailed in 1999 over child sex abuse pictures after taking his computer to PC World for repairs.
He moved abroad but in 2002 was expelled from Cambodia amid child sex allegations. And in 2006 he was jailed in Vietnam for abusing two girls, aged 10 and 11.
The Prison Service said: “Prisoners’ access to possessions is strictly controlled and they face further punishment if they are found with an item that is not allowed.”
