Karen Matthews says: “It makes me want to kill myself” in bid to clear her name.

10 years since being jailed for kidnapping daughter Shannon , Karen ­Matthews says she still finds it hard to get rid of the label of most despised mum.

The 43-year-old has spoken out in a twisted bid to convince the nation she is not evil and insist she knew nothing of the snatch plot that disgusted the world.

Without any hint of remorse over the sick kidnap, she pointed to other vile criminals to justify her claim that she should not be branded evil.

Mum-of-seven Matthews had been quoted as saying: “I’m not Britain’s worst mum. I didn’t kill anybody.

“Baby P’s mum and Maxine Carr don’t get the abuse that I do.

“None of it’s true. I’m on the edge. It makes me want to kill myself but I’d never do that. I’m scared I’ll die lonely and alone.”
