Gary Glitter is back in prison a month after his release

The 78-year-old was convicted of a series of sexual offenses in 2015 and sentenced to 16 years in prison, but was released on February 3, 2023 after serving half of his sentence.

Now Glitter – whose real name is Paul Gad – has been returned to custody just over a month after his release.

Glitter was returned to prison on Monday, after breaching the terms of his license, and his re-release will be a matter for the parole board.

Commenting on his return to custody, a spokesperson for the Monitoring Service said: “Protecting the public is our number one priority. That’s why we have strict licensing terms in place and when offenders breach them, we don’t hesitate to return them to custody.”

The sex offender was at the height of his fame when he took advantage of his victims, who thought no one would believe their claims due to his celebrity status.

He attacked two girls, aged 12 and 13, after inviting them backstage into his dressing room and isolating them from their mothers.

His third victim was less than 10 years old when he crept into her bed and attempted to rape her in 1975.

The allegations did not surface until almost 40 years later when Glitter became the first person to be arrested under Operation Yewtree – the investigation launched by the Metropolitan Police in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.

His fall from grace occurred years earlier after he admitted possessing 4,000 images of child pornography and was jailed for four months in 1999.

In 2002 he was expelled from Cambodia amid reports of allegations of sexual crimes, and in March 2006 he was found guilty of sexually abusing two girls, ages 10 and 11, in Vietnam and serving two and a half years in prison.
