He pleads with magistrates

Celeb BB winner Bez begged magistrates to, er, put him behind bars.

The Happy Mondays dancer, 43 – real name Mark Berry – was in the dock for driving without insurance.

But Bez asked to be banged up – because he said if he was sentenced to community service, it would be like a ‘media circus’.

His pleas fell on death ears, though, because he received 40 hours of community work, reports the News Of The World.

Bez won the third series of CBB, beating Blazin’ Squad rapper Kenzie and actress Brigitte Nielsen to win £50,000.
