Shamima Begum watches ITV show Good Morning Britain (GMB) and dances to Shakira to pass the time, according to reports.

The east London schoolgirl fled England to marry an ISIS fighter at the age of 15, and the Supreme Court has ruled she cannot return.

She is staying at the al-Roj detention centre in north-east Syria, where hobbies reportedly include TV and Zumba.

According to the DailyMail, she spends her days watching GMB in her tent, playing charades and dancing to pop star Shakira's music.

A new documentary about her life in the camp, The Return: Life After Isis, also revealed that her favourite film is Spider-Man, and the Men In Black franchise.

Dressed in skinny jeans, an unzipped hoodie, Nike baseball cap and trendy shades, Shamima begged the UK to give her another chance.

She said: "I would say to people in the UK, give me a second chance because I was still young when I left."

Shamima fled the UK in 2015 after being groomed online by ISIS radicals who convinced her, and two others, to board a plane from Gatwick.

The girls' whereabouts were unknown until 2019 when a journalist discovered Shamima in al-Hol camp.

She then gave a series of interviews to western journalists, discussing her plight and the ideology of ISIS.

In one interview, Shamima was asked about the Manchester Arena bombing atrocity, which killed 23 people, including the attacker, and injured a further 800.

Shamima failed to condemn the attack and claimed it had been "justified" because of airstrikes that have killed civilians in Syria.

She told the BBC: "It’s a two-way thing really because women and children are being killed in the Islamic State right now and it’s kind of retaliation.

"Their justification was that it’s retaliation so I thought OK that is a fair justification."

The then-teenager's chilling comments came as she pleaded with the UK government to repatriate her from a Syrian detention camp.

She has since become a controversial character and is the subject of an ongoing fight with the Home Office, who stripped her of her British citizenship.

Her father, Ahmed Ali, who lives in Bangladesh with his second wife, has apologised for his daughter joining ISIS but also urged the Government to "take her back and punish her" if necessary.
