SERIAL killer Rose West is set to propose to her lesbian lover.
The 65-year-old monster, who was convicted of 10 murders, has fallen for a fellow inmate who is around 30 years her junior.
West is planning on asking her new lover, known as Kat and inside for a brutal crime, to be her wife.
They have been enjoying passionate sessions and flaunting their romance after meeting each other on the FWing of top security Low Newton Prison in County Durham.
According to insiders West, whose husband Fred committed suicide while awaiting trial for the same murders, is said to have “fallen hard” for her new girlfriend.
A Low Newton source said: “Rose has had several flings with women before but she’s never been this serious about anyone.
“There has been talk of marriage but that might just be wing gossip but West is in for life and her lover is looking at a 17-year stretch.”
Scheming West seduced the killer by wooing her with toiletries such as bottles of shower gel.
The obese 18 stone cake lover, who last month won a prize for her Victoria Sponge skills, has also been giving her cooking lessons.
Rose also promised to protect her from any potential attacks from other inmates.
A source said: “West is a master manipulator. She seeks out vulnerable people and then befriends them.
“A lot of women arriving at Low Newton are terrified. It has a scary reputation, given that it is packed full of murderers.
“Many women who are heterosexual will form relationships with other women simply for companionship and security.
“West was like a homing missile when this new lifer arrived.

“She watched her for a few weeks before striking up a conversation.
“They soon became friends and West began introducing her to other cons, buying her little treats like shower gel and teaching her how to cook.
“Then one day they were seen kissing in West’s cell and they declared themselves a couple.
“Most inmates just let them get on with it but there are some homophobic types even in prison.”
West, whose 10 victims with husband Fred included their daughter Heather, has had a string of lesbian affairs since being banged up in 1995.
Her highest profile relationship was with evil Baby P mum Tracey Connelly.
The two monsters struck up a love affair in 2009 after Rose seduced Connelly, who allowed her son to be tortured to death.
Soon after being sent down she began a relationship with murderer Julie Campbell, doing life for setting fire to her husband.
Then she embarked on another romance with 22-stone Amanda Summers, jailed for torching a chemist’s shop. Next came flings with three other jailbirds including crop-haired knife killer Sarah Best, imprisoned for life for murdering a former male lover.
Prisoners have the right to marry under the European Convention on Human Rights but under the Marriage Act 1983, must apply to the prison governor for permission.
The governor must consider possible security risks on the wedding day, whether the marriage could be a sham and whether the prisoner could pose a risk of harm to their partner.
