MY HERO HANNIBAL.

BRONSON wanted a multiple killer known as Hannibal the Cannibal to speak on his behalf.

He has become good friends with maniac Robert Maudsley, who butchered four people to earn the gruesome nickname based on Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs.

The judge ruled that Maudsley's evidence would be irrelevant.

Bronson replied: "It's probably just as well. He would have frightened you." Bronson says of Maudsley: "He's a funny b******. He's the real Hannibal Lecter, but he's a survivor of the prison system."

Maudsley was jailed in 1974 for stabbing and garrotting an uncle.

He then knifed to death three fellow inmates - one at Broadmoor and two at Wakefield.

Maudsley's punishment was a cell with cardboard furniture and a concrete bed.

Ex-Home Secretary Michael Howard ruled he must never go free.
