Investigative reporter Paul Connolly is the Undercover Benefits Cheat who poses as a criminal living on benefits to investigate how people lie, steal and live outside the law – before exposing them all on camera.

Paul's investigation begins in Sheffield where his aim is to get himself many of life's essentials via some shady characters, all of it completely illegal.

He'll meet up with shoplifters who steal to order, someone who winds his electricity meter back to con power companies, and a man on benefits who sells his prescription pills. Sound like a nice bunch!

He then takes things further, tracking down the guy who's offering fake college certificates to help foreigners cheat the immigration system, before cracking another big money scam.
