Good Morning Britain: Richard Madeley clashed with Charles Bronson’s fiancee Paula Williamson on Tuesday morning [ITV]
The GMTV legend is currently guest-hosting the early-morning ITV chat show.
On Tuesday morning’s Good Morning Britain, Richard Madeley clashed with Paula Williamson.
Paula made headlines last year when she became engaged to Charles Bronson, often referred to as Britain’s most violent prisoner.
Appearing on the show, 37 year old Paula opened up about her plans to have a baby with Charles while he’s in jail.

But she faced scrutiny when Richard questioned her feelings for her fiancee, exclaiming: “No you don’t,” when she insisted she is in love with him.
Explaining their decision to have a baby, Paula said: “I turned 37 last Saturday and the realisation hit me – what if he does spend the next three years in prison?
“We might want to have a baby, it’s something we’ve seriously considered.”
Richard then responded: “You want to have a baby, why don’t you do what a very good friend of mine has recently done and go to a sperm bank?”

To which Paula replied: “Because I want his baby.”
Richard then questioned whether Charles’ criminal genes could be passed down to a child, leading to the pair clashing over whether Charles is still “a criminal.”
As the interview came to a close, Richard insisted “yes he is,” after pointing out Bronson had attacked a prison guard just last year.
After the interview aired, viewers praised Richard for his handling of the situation, with one writing on Twitter: “@GMB@richardm56 this women is deluded, Richard well handled… she needs to realise that he is criminal… meet someone free to have a baby with!”
