One minor TV celebrity getting out of prison soon is Dan Penteado, who helps to exposes workmen on the fiddle on the BBC’s Rogue Traders programme, fronted by consumer and taxpayer champion Ann Robinson.

Penteado was caught doing some rogue trading of his own when fraudulently claiming housing and council tax benefits whilst earning £56,000 from his TV job, a lapse of judgement that got him jailed for 10 weeks by Bournemouth magistrates on July 17.

Wonder if our saintly Ms Robinson knew?
