A shopping channel presenter nicknamed 'Super MILF' for selling slimming underwear on TV cheated the taxpayer out of more than £60,000 in a six-year fraud.

Jaynie Renner, 53, was making more than £80,000 a year as a QVC presenter where she attracted a legion of followers by stripping to her bra.

But she failed to pay VAT and income tax for her lucrative clothing business selling high end scarves, sarongs and fur hats at craft fairs and shows.

Police clocked on and dramatically arrested her on board a plane at Heathrow Airport bound for Canada, where she planned to emigrate with her new husband.

Appearing at Leeds Crown Court under her real name of Sheila, she was handed a suspended prison sentence after pleading guilty to five offences of fraudulent evasion of VAT and one of fraudulent evasion of income tax.

Howard Shaw, prosecuting, said the offending took place between 2009 and 2015. 

Renner's annual turnover for her clothing business exceeded the threshold for VAT registration in 1999.

Mr Shaw explained there had been no problems until May 2009 when Renner failed to submit any tax returns to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

Renner failed to submit tax returns up until 2015 when the offending came to light.

The total amount of unpaid VAT was £49,793. Further investigations revealed she had also failed to pay income tax. The total loss to the taxpayer was £61,690.

Renner, from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, has a previous conviction for false accounting in 1995, for which she served a six month prison sentence.

The court heard she had lost her job with the shopping channel as a result of the convictions.

Mark McKone, mitigating, said the offending took place at a time when Renner was 'drowning in debt'.

He said: 'She buried her head in the sand and is truly sorry for what she has done.'

Mr McKone said Renner had sold home in order to re-pay the money.

The court heard Renner had married a new partner who is a Canadian national and had been heading out to North America to live with him at the time she was arrested.

Mr McKone said Renner planned to move to Canada after completing her sentence and was hoping to get a job working for an animal charity.

Renner was given a 22-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, and was ordered to do 300 hours unpaid work.

Judge Christopher Batty told her: 'You have lost your job, you have lost your business, you don't have a home.

'In those exceptional circumstances I am prepared to suspend the sentence.'
