After her £900 bag, now benefits mother of 11 who claims £39,000 a year is planning a holiday to Vegas

  • Cheryl Prudham, 33, from Kent, planning to renew vows with husband Rob
  • Pair splashing out on hotel, gown, limousine and casino gambling money
  • Even wants to try for 13th child there so she can boast it is conceived in LA
  • Comes just weeks after pair reunited following split over Mr Prudham’s indecent Facebook messages

She costs taxpayers more than £39,000 a year in benefits.

And now Cheryl Prudham, a pregnant mother of 11, is blowing some of that cash on a £10,000 trip to Las Vegas, it was reported yesterday.

The 33-year-old is said to be planning to renew her wedding vows with her husband Robert, 30, during the ‘no expense spared’ jaunt.

Shameless: Cheryl Prudham, 33, who receives £39,000 in benefits, and her partner Robert are spending £10,000 on a lavish ceremony in Las Vegas to renew their wedding vows

Browsing: The couple, who hit headlines last year after demanding a bigger council house for their huge brood, visited her local Thomson travel agents in Kent to book the luxury family break

The pair, who have only just got back together after a short split because they want to have more children, were photographed this week visiting their local Thomson travel agent and taking away brochures for the American casino city.

Mrs Prudham – who was also recently spotted flaunting an £895 Mulberry handbag as she strolled near their home in Gravesend, Kent – plans to wear a £1,000 designer gown for the ceremony.

The couple will stay at the Circus Circus hotel and intend to renew their vows at the infamous Chapel of Love, before being whisked away in a chauffeur-driven limousine.

They have also booked to see some shows and go on a helicopter tour across Nevada, a Sunday newspaper reported.

It is not their first taxpayer-funded jaunt. Last year they took a £7,000 trip to Menorca, Spain. Mrs Prudham told Closer magazine at the time: ‘I don’t feel bad about using taxpayers’ money. We’re entitled to a holiday.’ 

The Prudhams claim £39,192 in benefits a year on top of Mr Prudham’s monthly salary of £1,600 as a delivery driver – bringing their total annual income up to almost £60,000.

Planning: The duo are planning to fly to the U.S. in March for the two-week ‘no-expense spared’ break

Lavish: Last month, Mr and Mrs Prudham and some of their children were spotted leaving a designer shop in London

They managed to avoid the Government’s £26,000-a-year cap on state handouts because Mr Prudham works enough hours to claim working tax credit.

The pair separated for a short time after Mr Prudham, who is the father of Mrs Prudham’s five youngest children, struck up a relationship with another woman online.

But Mrs Prudham took him back in February because she wanted to have more children with him.

She said: ‘We’re good at making babies … and I get more in benefits with every child I have, so I can afford a big family.’

Her 12th child is due in July and the family, who live in a five-bedroom council house, are waiting to be upgraded to a seven-bedroom home because their current one is ‘too cramped’.

Last month, the family attracted attention over their lifestyle when they were photographed leaving a Mulberry store at Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, East London.

The brand’s handbags are seen as the height of luxury thanks to the fine leather used and the eye-watering prices to match.

Mrs Prudham left the store with a shopping bag – thought to contain the much-coveted £895 Bayswater handbag she was recently spotted with.
