The runaway schoolgirl was stripped of her British citizenship after being found in a Syrian refugee camp in February. Begum now insists she “regrets everything”, including having children with her jihadi husband. The 19-year-old has also said she was “brainwashed” and knew little about Islam when she notoriously fled Bethnal Green in 2015.
She told The Times: "Since I left Baghuz I really regretted everything I did, and I feel like I want to go back to the UK for a second chance to start my life over again.
"I was brainwashed. I came here believing everything that I had been told, while knowing little about the truths of my religion.
"I do regret having children in the caliphate."
Begum was heavily pregnant when she was found in a Syrian refugee camp following the collapse of ISIS.
