Victoria Andreenkova (38) has told the Irish Daily Star that she has now found love with 26-year-old Leon Wright, a volatile man believed to be Ireland's most vicious inmate.

 Dubliner Wright was just a teenager jailed for 10 years in March 2007 for a litany of violent crimes, including robbery, hijacking, assault and threatening to kill gardai.

 It was recently reported that he received a new Playstation 3 games console so that he wouldn't attack warders in Portlaoise prison where he is carrying out his sentence.

 Wright has amassed well over 200 serious breaches of discipline since he first entered the Irish prison system in October 2005 and is considered the "angriest young man in Ireland" by staff who have to deal with him.

 However, Ms Andreenkova told the Irish Daily Star that she believes Wright has a 'soft side' and revealed that she has spoken to him twice over the phone.

 In one phonecall, the Russian woman tells of how her new beau called Dwyer a "sick bastard" and that he wanted to "rip his head off".

 "Leon asked me not to go see Graham again, and he has made me see my senses. In the past few months I don't think I was living in the real world with regards to Graham," she said.

 Ms Andreenkova said that she had removed her name from Dwyer's visitor's list at Midlands Prison - and that the murderer was devastated when she told him the news.

 "He was really sad. He told me he really loved me and that I was giving up on me too soon," she said.

 "But I don't want to see Graham again. It is Leon I now want to see."
