He says he is being supported by his celebrity chef father after becoming a Muslim as he battles to ‘stay clean’ and reform years of drug abuse which began at the age of just 13. And he now plans to become a chef like his famous father.

‘I have realised how lucky I am and have been. I have seen all walks of life in prison and some people don’t have a chance in life. I have had every opportunity and I have thrown them all away.

‘I could have done anything I wanted to, but instead I did heroin and ended up in prison. I have been an idiot.’

Despite sipping a beer – Islam forbids alcohol – he revealed he now prays to Allah five times a day.

He said: ‘In prison I saw the lads going to pray. I would listen to them talking about the Islamic community and the Koran and I thought a lot of it made sense. I had a flick through the Koran and my interest grew.

‘When I prayed to Allah I asked for my sins to be forgiven and for him to make me strong and protect me. I asked for my family to be safe – and everything has come true.

‘This is crazy how everything works out for me. I do believe it has a lot to do with my prayers and my religion.’

Blaming his crime spree on his drug use, he admitted that without prison and his loving father’s intervention, he would have died or spent the rest of his days as an addict and in jail.
