Kelly Jones Sentenced For Single Parent Fraud: Wife Swap Special

by | 7th, July 2010

THAT’S Kelly Jones, star of the Wife Swap telly show, walking the hard yards to Bristol Magistrates Court on charges of benefit fraud along with her husband Steven Jones.

Kelly Jones, 23 (!) claimed she was a single parent with no income for nearly 18 months, a court previously heard. She said she was living alone with her child. But she was lying. She was living with Steven Jones, who works as a bus driver for First.

The couple’s fraud was discovered when they featured on Channel 4’s reality show Wife Swap. They were paid £1,000 for their appearance.

File under: TV Crimes. And a poser: What would you swap Kelly for?
