My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding site resident admits £63k benefits con
A MOTHER of nine yesterday admitted conning £63,000 in benefits while living on the travellers’ site from My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. Chavelle Price, 33, claimed to be a single mum while staying with husband Patrick and said she had a shoulder injury so she did not have to work. A member of the public tipped off investigators and she was caught when she submitted planning applications for a site in Wolverhampton in her and her husband’s name. At the city’s crown court, Price admitted making fraudulent benefit claims between June 1999 and December 2010. She was freed on bail and will be sentenced on October 12.
