Karen Matthews, the mother who staged a fake kidnapping of her daughter to claim the reward money, has been released from prison after serving half of her 8 year sentence.

Matthews kept nine-year-old daughter Shannon drugged and hidden in the home of friend Michael Donovan. Sharon’s disappearance led to a well-publicised £3.2 million police hunt over 24 days in 2008 before the girl was discovered unharmed in a drawer beneath a bed.

The mother-of-seven wants to appear on ‘Jezza’ to take a lie detector test on national TV.

According to the Daily Mail, the 36-year-old has undergone a ‘make over’ while in prison and is now staying in a secret location within 30 miles of her home in Dewsbury Moor, West Yorkshire.

Donovan was released from prison last week.
