ISIS bride Shamima Begum is planning to eat a footlong meatball Subway if she is ever allowed back to the UK.

The 21-year-old, who left London in 2015 with two school friends, has been stranded in a refugee camp in northern Syria since the terror group’s defeat at the hands of US-backed Kurdish forces.

During this time, Begum has lost three children and her British citizenship.

Last month, the Supreme Court ruled that she could not return to the UK to appeal the decision.

In the new documentary The Return: Life After ISIS, which began filming in 2019, Begum said she "felt really guilty" after watching videos of Syrians being bombed.

She explained that she had wanted to defend Muslims and "be a part of something".

However, she later realised that ISIS were "trapping people" to boost their numbers and "look good for the [propaganda] videos".

Begum has now begged Britain to give her a "second chance".

At one point, another ISIS bride asked what she’d do if she ever made it back to the UK.

Begum responded: "Eat a nice big Subway, a foot-long with meatballs. Just leave me with it."

In February 2019, Begum toldThe Times that she "didn’t regret" travelling to Syria.

However, she claimed in the documentary that she "had no choice but to say certain things" to journalists "because I lived in fear of these women coming to my tent one day and killing me and killing my baby".

She insisted that she did not know or support the brutal crimes committed by ISIS, including the rape, torture, and beheadings.

During the film, Begum also broke down when talking about the death of her children.

In March 2019, her baby boy passed away from pneumonia. He was less than three weeks old.

Prior to that, Begum lost two other children – a son and a daughter.

She said: "When she died it was so hard because I just felt so alone and I felt like my entire world was falling apart in front of me and I couldn't do anything.

"I felt like it was my fault for not getting them out sooner.

"When she died at that moment I just wanted to kill myself. I felt like I couldn't even get up to run any more when there were bombings."

The documentary, directed by Spanish filmmaker Alba Sotorra Clua, premiered this week at the online Texas-based South By Southwest festival.
