GHISLAINE Maxwell is on suicide watch tonight — after swapping her extraordinary life of luxury for a cramped jail cell.

The British socialite’s every move was being monitored at Merrimack County Jail, in New Hampshire, sources have told The Sun.

It is just an hour away from the huge £800,000 home where she was holed up before the arrest.

Friends revealed she had up to £16million in the bank and had been spending time cooking, boxing and reading books by Boris Johnson at the 156-acre estate.

Now Maxwell, 58, is being closely guarded at the US lock-up.

It was at the centre of a coronavirus scare in March when a prison officer tested positive for the deadly infection.

A prison source said: “Given the death of Jeffrey Epstein in jail, everybody is obviously concerned about making sure nothing happens to Ghislaine Maxwell.

"Her security is a top priority. The case is being handled extremely sensitively.”

Maxwell faces 35 years in jail on child grooming and perjury charges related to Epstein’s child sex trafficking ring.

A British woman — thought to be Maxwell — was heard sobbing from jail before her court appearance on Thursday.

She was heard saying: “What the f* is going on… Seriously, what the f*?”

Epstein died in his cell at Manhattan Correctional Centre in August last year, while being held without bail pending trial on child sex-trafficking charges.

An autopsy revealed that the financier had suffered multiple broken neck bones ­— often consistent with strangulation.

But chief medical examiner Dr Barbara Sampson recorded the death as suicide “after careful review” of the case.
