BBC Rogue Traders presenter Dan Penteado pleaded guilty today to council tax and housing benefit fraud to the tune of more than £24,000.
Penteado, 40, admitted eight offences of dishonestly or knowingly claiming the benefits while not declaring he earned thousands from the BBC for the show.
Penteado, from Bournemouth who co-hosts the programme with Matt Allwright, was warned he could face jail and he was granted bail while a pre-sentence report is prepared.
The case was adjourned until July 17 at Bournemouth Magistrates' Court.
