Johnny Joyce, 23, was in­jured in a fight with a fel­low in­mate at Strange­ways jail in Manch­ester.

Prison bosses have launched their own in­ves­ti­ga­tion af­ter the brawl.

How­ever, po­lice were not called to deal with the in­ci­dent as nei­ther party made a for­mal com­plaint.

He said: “Ha ha... ***** ***** got smashed up by my bro johnny in the jail strange ways the screws needed 2 tow­els for the blood on his face. Ha ha ha.”

Joyce (above), from Open­shaw, Manch­ester, was jailed for 15 months in Jan­uary af­ter a fight with his cousin, Celebrity Big Brother and My Big Fat Gypsy Wed­ding star Paddy, 52.
