Shamima Begum has begged to come home to the UK, blaming her decision to leave the country and join ISIS on her being a 'dumb kid'.

The former ISIS bride looks unrecognisable in pictures from her latest interview, donning painted finger nails, a Nike cap and jeans.

She also revealed she following news of Kim Kardashian 's divorce from Kanye West, whose music she says she love, and is also watching re-runs of Friends in her prison camp.

The now 21-year-old's new image is in stark contrast to her initial interviews when she wore a hijab and defended the actions of ISIS.

However the Bethnal Green schoolgirl has since claimed she was brainwashed by extremists when she left Britain and travelled to Syria in 2015.

Speaking to Andrew Drury, for his film Danger Zone, she said: "I don't think I was a terrorist. I think I was just a dumb kid who made one mistake.

"I personally don't think that I need to be rehabilitated, but I would want to help other people be rehabilitated. I would love to help."

According to Mail Online, she told Mr Drury that she now wears western clothes because it 'makes her happy', which she said was a 'lifesaver' in her camp.

When asked if she had a message for the UK Government, she added: "Can I come home please, pretty please?'

Former Home Secretary Sajid Javid revoked her British citizenship on national security grounds shortly after she was found nine months pregnant in a Syrian refugee camp in February 2019.

At the time, she told reporters she didn't regret joining ISIS, but begged to be rescued and brought back to the UK.
