Bigamist Jailed After Being Caught With Second Wife On ‘Saturday Night Takeaway’

Imagine sitting at home, watching Saturday Night Takeaway and having a good ole laugh. Then, out of nowhere, your husband appears on the screen. Not only is he on national telly without you knowing, but he's also sitting there with another woman.

That was the reality confronting Helen Gundry, her son Alex and daughter Daisy.

They watched in horror as their dad and husband Daniel Gundry was on Ant and Dec's TV show with Susan Brooker during a live wedding of Susan's sister and her fiancé, Sam, reports the Mirror.

After the truth was revealed, the 39-year-old reportedly lied about being married to both women. However, he's since admitted to bigamy during a court hearing in Warrington.

The magistrate heard victim impact statements from his family, before he was sentenced to six months behind bars. Helen told the court of her sleepless nights and developing depression after she saw Daniel on TV.

Following the sentencing, she said: "He has been lying for a long time so I'm just glad that finally he's been found out."

Helen and Daniel married in 1998 and split in 2010, however they decided to give their marriage another go in 2016. Little did Helen know, her husband had already developed a relationship with Sue and even got married in Seychelles.

Speaking to the Mirror two years ago, the mum of two said: "There was never a divorce. We were separated until a year ago when he convinced me to get back together.

"Daisy and I were set to move to Dubai to live with Dan in June.

"Dan told me he had split up with Sue last year [2015]. The year before that, I saw a picture of their Seychelles wedding online and asked him what he was playing at as we were still married."

The unsuspecting wife even went on Saturday Night Takeaway's Facebook page when the episode aired, saying: "I loved the wedding and the surprised guests - I didn't love the sight of my husband who's supposed to be working in Dubai (first off the coach Daniel Gundry) arriving on the arm of another woman, a woman he's supposed to have split from last year.

"We have a 15yr old daughter who's in absolute bits."

In the comments, she was challenged by a man claiming to be a friend of Dan's, who said: "No matter how hard you try you won't be able to break them."

The Mirror says Helen and Susan have become friends during the court process, describing their joint husband as an 'absolute psycho'.
