Charles Bronson's ex-wife reveals he wants to remarry her

Charles Bronson’s ex-wife reveals Britain’s most notorious prisoner wants to remarry her after visiting him in person for first time in 50 years

  • Irene Dunroe, 71, from Wirral, Merseyside, visited Bronson in HMP Woodhill 
  • The pair first married in 1971 before getting divorced five years later 

Charles Bronson has told his ex-wife he wants to remarry her during her prison visit in person for the first time in 50 years. 

Irene Dunroe, 71, visited Britain’s most notorious prisoner in person at HMP Woodhill last week for the first time in five decades where the former lovebirds discussed their relationship. 

Ms Dunroe first wed Bronson, 70, in 1971 when he then went by his real name Michael Peterson. Three years later he was put behind bars. The pair divorced in 1976 but stayed in contact. 

Bronson – who in recent years changed his last name to Salvador in tribute to the Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dali – has been wed three times, including to ex-Coronation Street actress Paula Williamson. She was found dead at her home in 2019.

Now it looks like Bronson wants to rekindle his romance with first wife and mum-of-three Ms Dunroe following the two-hour prison visit.

But Ms Dunroe, from Wirral, Merseyside, said she wants to concentrate on getting him out of prison first, although she has not ruled out the pair saying their vows to each other again.

‘He said I haven’t changed at all and he was looking into my eyes and saying you’ve still got the same gorgeous eyes,’ she told The Mirror.  

‘He was full of compliments. He’s always saying that he wants to try the relationship, and that he’s always loved me – that I’m his first love.’

Bronson lost his latest bid for freedom in March when a Parole Board ruled he might not be able to control violent outbursts if he is released. 

The panel ruled it ‘could not be satisfied’ that Bronson had the ‘skills to manage his risk of future violence until he has been extensively tested outside of his current highly restricted environment’.

The notorious prisoner, who has gone by the name of Salvador since 2014, was deemed still a threat to the public despite protesting he was a ‘man of peace’, as it was also ruled he should not be moved to an open prison.

Bronson was first locked up for armed robbery in 1974, and during his time inside he has taken 11 hostages in nine prison sieges and has attacked at least 20 prison officers and caused £500,000 in damage in rooftop protests.

The appeal was only the second in English legal history to be held in public. Afterwards, Bronson’s son, George Bamby, said: ‘I would have loved Charlie to have been released, but completely respect the decision of the Parole Board.’

In a statement, the board said: ‘After considering the circumstances of his offending, the progress that Mr Salvador has made while in custody and the evidence presented at the hearings, the panel was not satisfied that Mr Salvador was suitable for release.

‘Nor did the panel recommend to the Secretary of State that he should be transferred to an open prison.

‘The panel noted that Mr Salvador has spent most of the last 48 years in custody and that much of this time has been in conditions of segregation.

‘The panel accepted that Mr Salvador genuinely wants to progress and that he is motivated to work towards his release. It thought that there was evidence of improved self-control and better emotional management.’

Bronson suffers from PTSD because of his ‘brutal’ treatment in prison, a previous hearing was told.

She described her ex-husband as a ‘handsome and protective man’.

She said the pair met in a pub called The Bull in Great Sutton, Cheshire, and instantly hit it off.

‘He was always very immaculate he had jet black hair, thick sideburns and a little Mexican moustache.

‘He was such a gentleman, he used to open car doors for me he was protective as well.’
