A Humberside man, obsessed by the BBC sitcom Porridge, starring the late Ronnie Barker and Richard Beckinsale, claims he began his life of crime because prison 'seemed like fun'.
Chris Pegg, 42, soon realized that life behind bars was not as fun as he thought, and conditions at HMP Brixton were a lot different than they were at HMP Slade.
"There was no Norman Stanley Fletcher, no Godber, no laughs, nothing - I made a huge mistake!"
Indeed he had, sentenced to five years, Chris was repeatedly raped and brutalized by his fellow inmates - and often found himself covered in excrement.
"I thought it would be funny, joking around with the warden's - but they weren't like Mr Barrowclough, they were real bastards - and another thing - I was the only white guy in there."
Pegg is considering suing the BBC for false representation as well as the Prison Service.
