Charles Bronson shares coronavirus lockdown tips for surviving life indoors
Notorious lag Charles Bronson has shared his top-tips for life behind closed doors during the coronavirus outbreak.
The man once dubbed Britain's most violent prisoner has also blasted 'selfish and greedy' Brits for stockpiling during the coronavirus outbreak and says we should be 'taking care' of elderly people most at risk.
The 67-year-old jailbird, who has been in prison since 1974, spoke from his cell at HMP Woodhill in Bucks this weekend.
In a chat with son George Bamby – who now calls himself George Bamby-Salvador – Bronson, known as Charles Salvador – said he had endured four-and-a-half decades of 'self isolation'.
Speaking on Saturday in a Facebook posting listened to by nearly 8,000 people the jailbird said: "A lot of you have been isolated in your home for a couple of weeks or a month now.
"Well, I've been isolated for four-and-a-half decades.
"I'm going to be you a bit of advice in your isolation – get a couple of good books, you can't beat a good book when you're in isolation.
"Also, get plenty of fluids down you – and don't forget your training, your solitary fitness – do that in your house or go out in the garden to do it.
"I do my exercises in the exercise yard – your exercise yard is your garden.
"Get out there and do your dips and pull-ups and press-ups and sit ups – have a little jog, do a little stretching – enjoy yourself…health and fitness is everything, remember that."
Speaking about stockpiling and looking after older people or people with coronavirus, Salvador added: "If you've got an old person or someone who ain't very well living next to you or up the road, make sure they don't go short of things.

"There are a lot of greedy, selfish people out there going out and buying 25 bloody toilet rolls.
"Slow down, don't panic – look after the old people – they fought in the bloody war for you people grabbing all them toilet rolls.
"Look after people – stop being selfish."
"Don't give in, be strong, keep the faith and remember you are never alone – there is always someone."
Writing on the Facebook posting, George Bamby-Salvador said: "Coronavirus message from dad, Charlie Bronson. He has been isolated for 45 years!"
Superfit Salvador, who does 2,000 press-ups every day, was first locked up for armed robbery in 1974, but during his time inside he has taken hostages in 10 prison sieges, attacked at least 20 prison officers and caused £500,000 in damage in rooftop protests.
In 1999 he was given a life sentence after taking prison art teacher Phil Danielson hostage at HMP Hull after he criticised one of his drawings.
He has penned a number of books while in jail, including Solitary Fitness in 2002.
