Gemma Abbey who represented the United Kingdom as part of group Jemini has been convicted of fraud. The singer who came in last place in 2003 with ‘Cry Baby’ (receiving nul points), has been found guilty of claiming up to £52,000 in benefits she was not entitled to.
Abbey had been claiming tax credits she was entitled to as a single mother. However the singer recently posted photographs of her wedding in the Mediterranean exposing herself as being in a relationship and therefore she was claiming more than she was entitled to since April 2009.
The singer was handed a 30-week prison sentence, suspended for one year after admitting to the two counts of fraud.
Jemini were a male female duo consisting of Gemma Abbey and Chris Cromby who are noted as one of the most unsuccessful acts in the UK’s Eurovision History. The vocals on the night were off key and this was reflected in the points awarded. They finished with the infamous nul points. Check out the performance below.
