‘SOME of the most famous – and infamous – works of literature have been written while the author is behind bars.

The one on the right’s as guilty as sin

One thinks of John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, of Oscar Wilde’s De Profundis and of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.

That list will soon be joined not only by Jeffrey Archer’s prison diaries but by Jordan’s musings from inside Sutton Coldfield police station.

”Jordan: My Night In Nick,” advertises the front page of the Star.

The top-heavy mo-del was, you will recall, detained by the boys in blue after an alleged assault in a Birmingham nightclub – but is maintaining her innocence.

Club manager Dave Read said the alleged victim had been trying to cause trouble for Jordan.

”The police got in touch with me and Jordan went voluntarily to the police station and stayed there a couple of hours,” he told the paper.

As the papers battle over the serialisation rights to Jordan’s harrowing account of those hours behind bars, the woman herself was back doing what she does best.

The Sun catches up with her taking a rare night off from looking after her baby son Harvey to show off her pole-dancing skills at London’s Embassy Club.

”Somehow,” it says, ”she managed to overcome her painful shyness to cavort around in a skimpy top, matching knickers and knee-high boots.”

It is amazing how quickly prison can change a woman…
