She met the renowned criminal in prison in late 2016 and they were married in November 2017.

She told the Sun in June that the couple expected the annulment process to take two weeks, adding: "It's sad. It's never nice and I have been left with absolutely nothing.

"I have lost all my work because I married this man as well as family and friends.

"I don't believe in mistakes or regrets."

Police said they were called to a house on Gordon Avenue in Sneyd Green and have confirmed that the death is not deemed to be suspicious.

A spokesman for the Staffordshire force said: "A woman from Stoke-on-Trent who was found dead this morning has been named as Paula Williamson, aged 38.

"Paula's body was found in a house on Gordon Avenue, Sneyd Green, at around 7am.

"A post mortem will take place to establish the cause of death but the death is not being treated as suspicious.

"A report is now being prepared for the coroners."
