ROSE WEST: I’M NOT THAT UGLY! De­luded killer says she’s much bet­ter look­ing than TV ac­tress

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE - By REX ROW­LANDS

CRAZED se­rial killer Rose West is fu­ri­ous be­cause the ac­tress who played her in re­cent drama Ap­pro­pri­ate Adult wasn’t AT­TRAC­TIVE enough.

Vain West reck­ons she was a real looker in her day and says she plans to sue pro­duc­ers of ITV1’s two-parter for cast­ing “plain and dowdy” Mon­ica Dolan in the role.

The vile mur­der­ess told fel­low lags she thinks they could have found a much bet­ter match and has now for­bid­den any­one in Low Newton Prison where she is banged up to talk about the show.

An in­sider at the jail — where West will re­main un­til her death — said: “When she heard about the show Rose was pretty happy. She’s vain and she thought she was bound to get some­one sexy to play her.

“But when she sat down to watch the first episode she was fu­ri­ous — she said the ac­tress play­ing her was plain and dowdy and not a patch on how she looked at the time of her ar­rest in 1994.

“She re­fused to watch part two and is think­ing about con­sult­ing her lawyers.”

The con­tro­ver­sial show — about the sick­en­ing rapes and mur­ders of young women who were buried in the cou­ple’s home in Cromwell Street, Glouces­ter — was broad­cast in two parts.


It was a huge crit­i­cal suc­cess, with Mon­ica Dolan as Rose and Do­minic West as Fred sin­gled out for praise.

Sick Rose, 58, in­sists she had noth­ing to do with Fred’s killing spree, but she was found guilty of 10 mur­ders and sen­tenced to life in jail.

Fred was 53 when he hanged him­self while on re­mand for the crimes.

LOOKS TO DIE FOR: Mon­ica Dolan played Rose in her younger
