JIHADI Jack has announced that he wants to come home to the UK after being held for two years in a Kurdish prison in an interview tonight.
Jack Letts, who was born in Oxford has said that he is missing his mum and home comforts like pasties and watching Doctor Who.

Letts who ran away to war-torn Syria in 2014 when he was just 18 said: “I miss my mum.
“I know that sounds a bit toddler-ish.
“What else do I miss? I miss pasties. It’s not really English – sort of Scottish isn’t it? I miss pasties. And Doctor Who. Sounds a bit stupid… that’s all.”
He apparently hasn’t spoken to his parents in two years, but they face trial over claims that they funded terrorism by sending him money.
His Canadian father John Letts and British mother Sally Lane have denied the charge and say that their 23-year-old son went to Syria to help refugees.

His interview comes just a week after Shamima Begum, the runaway ISIS bride, has said that she wants to come back to the UK to raise her newborn child.
The dad-of-one said that he would rather stay in prison if it meant allowing women and children to leave the camps – explaining that women and children die in the poor conditions.
Letts created a life for himself in the country, learning Arabic in Jordan before moving to Kuwait, then to Iraq and Syria living on “the Oxford Street of Raqqa”.
The Muslim convert has since married an Iraqi woman and the couple have had a son together.
He was arrested as he was travelling to Turkey to leave Syria and has since been in a Kurdish prison.
The Brit said he had never seen his son and has no idea where his wife is.RUNAWAY TEEN
He admitted that during his time in Raqqa he embraced 2015’s Paris attacks after he saw children killed by coalition jet bombing raids.
During his interview with ITV News he said that he thought it was a good thing when he was quizzed over the Paris attacks.
He said: “At the time, you have this sort of – and this is what war does to you – you have this idea of ‘why shouldn’t it happen to them?
But he then said that his opinion changed and that the deaths of innocent people is wrong.
During the interview he seemed to be fully aware that returning to the UK would not be easy. He said that he has approached British and Canadian officials but is yet to get a reply.
He said that neither countries ‘really care’ about him and what happens.
The 23-year-old previously told media that he had tried to commit suicide as conditions in his 6ft by 3ft cell were so bad.
Home Office spokesperson said: “In recent days the home secretary has clearly stated that his priority is the safety and security of Britain and the people who live here.
