BABY P’s evil mum Tracey Connelly has been told to lose weight instead of being handed a new identity when she leaves jail, reports claim.
The monster, 40, was recalled to jail in 2015 for selling nude pictures of herself online – but she is being freed after a bid to keep her banged up was rejected.
It is understood she has been told to change her appearance by going on a crash diet after ballooning to nearly 20 stone.
Connelly was also advised to dye her hair so she is not recognised on the streets after being refused a new identity, Daily Star reports.
A prison source said: “Tracey was fuming when she heard the news.
“It is very rare to give prisoners a new identity. The bar is extremely high and she did not cross that threshold.
“The prison officers managing her release have told her the best thing she could do to avoid attention would be to change her appearance by drastically losing weight and dyeing her hair.
“But she’s still a pretty big woman so a huge weight loss is not likely over the coming weeks.”
The Parole Board confirmed Connelly will be released from jail earlier this month.
She has served just 11 years in total for her horrific crimes – four years for Peter’s death and seven years for selling the X-rated snaps.
The ruling came despite Justice Secretary Dominic Raab saying her evil crimes were so “harrowing” the Parole Board should look again at their decision.
Connelly previously lost bids for release in 2015, 2017 and 2019.
The monster mum was jailed for at least five years in 2009 for causing or allowing the death of 17-month-old Peter.
His brutal killing in 2007 shocked the nation after it emerged there were 60 missed opportunities to save him.
Little Peter suffered more than 50 injuries during an eight-month campaign of cruelty in Haringey, North London.
Connelly’s partner, Steven Barker and his brother Jason Owen were also jailed over his death.
The vile mum was released in 2013 and put on a lifelong licence that meant she could be recalled to prison at any time.
She was hauled back to jail in 2015 after The Sun revealed she was flogging nude snaps online.
