Dan Penteado, AKA the more attractive one off BBC3's Rogue Traders, has been charged with benefit fraud - amount to £24k.
Digital Spy reports: "The presenter, who exposes unscrupulous and fraudulent tradesmen for the consumer affairs programme, has not responded to letters from Bournemouth Borough Council on the matter and failed to appear for a court date on June 13th, resulting in a warrant for his arrest being issued... Penteado, who also works as a private investigator, allegedly claimed that he was a full-time student with a family in order to receive housing and council tax benefit between 2008 and 2012. He was also working for Rogue Traders throughout that time on a salary that ranged from £6,000 to £16,000 over the years."
A Dorset police rep said: "We can confirm that an arrest warrant has been issued for Mr Penteado over allegations of benefit fraud. It will go to our warrants' department as a normal investigation so we can try and serve it as soon as possible. We will obviously look to try and find out where he is."
