This Welsh comedian was the first major victim of Identity Theft in the UK. The crime left him and his pregnant wife penniless and homeless. He went on to make a Channel 4 documentary on the subject in which he demonstrated the ease of the crime by stealing the identity of the Home Secretary. He was arrested in a dawn raid by Scotland Yard and shortlisted for a BAFTA. This is the whole story for the first time. 'Genuinely original and funny' (Times).
