Jenkinson reportedly told staff at her young offenders' institution that her parents "don't mean anything to me".

Then, asked if she regretted what she had done, the 16-year-old teen replied: “I did for two hours. Now I don’t give a f**k, and I’d do it again,” The Sun reports.

"Before she was found guilty at trial she wasn’t publicly identified in the media but she Googled her name and found people talking about her," a source at the institution told the publication.

"She loved the idea of fame. It was one of the only times I saw genuine emotion from her. She was proud of what she did. It was chilling."
