Piers, 54, met with Bennett in prison, with a screen separating the two.

Bennett stabbed his four-year-old sister to death in 2007 when he was 13.

Diagnosed as a psychopath, he's now serving a 40-year jail sentence for his horrific crime.

For many years, there was just this hot, flaming ball of wrath in the pit of my stomach and it was directed at my mother.

During the programme, he told Piers: "For many years, there was just this hot, flaming ball of wrath in the pit of my stomach and it was directed at my mother."

He added that he wanted to hurt his mother, who was listening in on the interview, in "the worst possible way".
