London, April 17 (ANI): Jack Tweed has reportedly been pumping iron after his fellow inmates in Chelmsford Prison dubbed him The Twiglet.
The skinny 21-year-old had been found guilty of attacking a taxi driver after losing his drunken temper over the fare and had been subsequently sentenced to 12 weeks in jail.
Jade Goody's grieving widower had been allegedly targeted by his inmates last time he spent a week in jail in 2008 at the start of a five-month term for attacking a 16-year-old with a golf club.
He was recently reported to have been put in a single cell along with inmates on suicide watch to protect him from being targeted by hardened cons.
And now, Tweed is purportedly lifting weights to toughen up against potential threats.
"Jack's new nickname is The Twiglet, or Twiglet Tweed," the Sun quoted a source as saying.
"A lot of the inmates train in case the worst happens and they have to defend themselves, so he has asked one of the bigger guys if he will help him out in the gym," the source added.
The source continued: "He's always been skinny but that never bothered him until he went to Chelmsford the first time. Jack was a scared little boy, but now he's determined to shed his puny image." (ANI)
