Gemma Atkinson posts pics of Manchester attack victims and says jihadi bride Shamima Begum should NOT be allowed back in UK after she called attack 'justified'

Gemma posted a collage of those murdered in the horrific blast and fumed on Instagram: “Here’s 22 reasons why that Isis bride should NOT be allowed back in the UK!”


The pregnant ex-Hollyoaks star also shared a bee emoji – a symbol that came to represent love and strength in Manchester.

Many followers backed Gemma’s post and said she was “very brave” for speaking out.

Others said they “totally agree” and that 19-year-old Beggum should “never ever be allowed to set foot in the UK again”.

MANCHESTER BLAST 'JUSTIFIED'

Gemma, 34, shared the post after ISIS bride Begum said the Manchester bombing was "justified".

Twenty two people were murdered and 800 injured when jihadi Salman Abedi detonated a homemade explosive after an Ariana Grande concert at the MEN Arena in May 2017.

Britain was rocked by the tragedy with the nation shocked that so many innocent children could be targeted.

But in an interview today Begum, from Bethnal Green, East London, said: "I do feel that it's wrong that innocent people did get killed.

Women and children are being killed in Islamic State right now, and it's a kind of retaliation… their justification was it's retaliation so I thought 'OK, that is a fair justification.

"It's one thing to kill a soldier that is fighting you; it's self-defence, but to kill women and children…"

She added: "just people like the women and children in Baghuz that are being killed right now unjustly, the bombings.

"It's a two-way thing really. Because women and children are being killed in Islamic State right now, and it's a kind of retaliation… their justification was it's retaliation so I thought 'OK, that is a fair justification."

'I'M SORRY FOR JOINING ISIS'

The ISIS Briton told BBC News that she was a “poster girl for IS recruitment”, and has apologised to Britain for joining the terror group.

She said: “I didn’t want to be on the news. I heard there were a lot of people who were encouraged [by her going overseas]."

Asked whether she had been inspired to leave Britain after watching gruesome footage of beheadings, Begum replied that she had seen those and had been encouraged by scenes depicting a "good life" with the terror group.

She has also revealed that she is ready to be imprisoned should she and her newborn son be allowed to return to the UK.

Begum told the broadcaster that she is seeking the UK's forgiveness, as, "I actually do support some British values."
