THE wife of canoe conman John Darwin has reportedly been reconciled with the sons she and her husband betrayed with their fake death scam.

Since her release from jail two weeks ago, Anne – a former Blackhall Colliery beauty queen, who worked as a medical receptionist in Durham City – has tried to rebuild family ties.

She confided to friends: “There is a way to go yet but my boys have forgiven me.”

She has, however, no intention of including husband John in that reunion.

The Seaton Carew couple gained notoriety when he turned up at a police station claiming to be missing and suffering from amnesia.

His scam included stealing the identity of dead Sunderland baby John Jones, which has left the youngster’s remaining siblings demanding answers from the Darwins.
