Heather Frost to star in Channel 5 documentary
BRITAIN’S huge benefits bill is set to feature in a new Channel 5 documentary - with Churchdown mum-of-11 Heather Frost playing a starring role.
On Benefits and Proud will air on Monday, October 14 at 9pm and give a controversial insight into the lifestyles of those living on the dole.
Heather hit the headlines this year when it emerged she was in line to benefit from a custom built £500,000 six-bedroom mansion on a housing estate in Tewkesbury.
But housing provider Severn Vale did a u-turn in July, claiming the house wasn't suitable for the jobless 37-year-old and her family after all.

Heather, who lives with her two boys and nine girls in two knocked-through council houses, has never had a full-time job but gets benefits roughly equivalent to a job earning £60,000 a year – three times the typical UK family income.
She told the programme she believes it is her right to have as many children as she wants, whatever the cost.
Two of her children are now jobless adults with kids and homes of their own, so the benefits bill for the family is increasing.
The programme will also feature a newly married couple from Liverpool and single mums from Croydon.
