FERGIE’S killer ex-aide has launched her latest bid for freedom.

Jane Andrews, 52, was freed on licence in 2015 after serving 15 years behind bars for murdering millionaire boyfriend Tom Cressman.

But she was recalled to New Hall Prison – home to house of horrors killer Rose West – last year after being accused of harassment.

Andrews has now appeared before a parole board in an attempt to persuade them to release her once more.

The move came despite warnings from his family about her behaviour and other exes branding her a “bunny boiler”.

Her victim’s brother Rick Cressman, 67, and his younger sister Cathy, said the Duchess of York’s former dresser still posed a threat to the public and should remain locked-up.

Hotelier Rick said: “I was impressed with the Board for obviously taking great care before reaching the correct decision.

‘FREE’ BID

“We didn’t see her but it would have been advantageous to witness her general demeanour, and hear what she had to say.

“My sister and I read out two letters.

“Cathy’s focused on the impact Andrews’ behaviour was having on our family, while mine implored the Parole Board to think long and hard about what to do with her.”

The outcome is expected to be known in two weeks to a month.

The panel can now order her immediate release on licence, set a date for her future release, keep her in prison, order a fresh parole hearing or delay a decision pending further information.

The Sun understands the harassment allegation centres on a complaint linked to an ex-lover and not to Mr Cressman’s family.

‘BUNNY BOILER’

No charges have yet been brought and police refused to comment.

But a source said: “She is desperate to get out again. She built a new life outside but it collapsed with her recall.”

Andrews had been working as an antiques dealer since being released 14 years into a life term for murdering businessman Mr Cressman, 39.

She had lashed out with a cricket bat and a knife at his flat in Fulham, West London, in 2000 after he refused to marry her.

She had turned to him after being sacked from the royal household in a 1997 costcutting drive.

Following the killing, Andrews went on the run and was caught four days later after Fergie left two voicemail messages pleading with her to hand herself in to police.


In 2009 she fled East Sutton Park open prison in Maidstone, Kent, and met her parents in a graveyard in the dead of night.

Cabbie Darren Auckland told The Sun at the time he had refused the mud-caked killer’s demands to drive them back to her home town of Grimsby.
