74. Black Widow: I was in prison with Myra Hindley for murder I didn't commit

Linda Calvey is known as the Black Widow, because all of her lovers ended up dead or in prison. Wikipedia has her down as an armed robber and murderer, and while she contests the latter, she did spent 18 years in Holloway Prison alongside such notorious serial killers as Myra Hindley and Rose West – names that strike fear into the hearts of most Brits who hear them – but people all the same that Linda had to share living spaces with, even giving Hindley a slap, before later having to do her hair.
