Deal or No Deal winner sentenced for fraud

Caroline Banana, who won £95,000 on the TV programme Deal or No Deal, has been found guilty of benefit fraud. The 40-year-old from Whitridge Grove, Bentilee, has been sentenced to 215 hours of unpaid work after fraudulently claiming just over £6,000.

It's a strange tale - but it's not as uncommon as you might think.
