ITV Judge Rinder viewers in stitches after love rat dad-to-be is awarded 10p

A cheating dad-to-be who tried to claim £3,600 damages against his ex using a phoney invoice was awarded just 10p on Judge Rinder.

The case saw former couple Joanna, who is 28-weeks pregnant, and Dan, locked in a dispute over money after their relationship fell apart.

Joanna appeared on the ITV show to claim £1,572.38 for an outstanding amount owed on a catalogue account.

In response Dan tried to counter claim for £3,600 for loss of earnings after a damning Facebook post she wrote when she found out he’d cheated on her, as well as the sale of a kayak belonging to him.

“This is a case about love and making poor decisions, wouldn’t you agree?” began TV barrister Robert Rinder.

The judge went into detail about their relationship, which began in 2016, and saw them fall in love at first sight despite a 10-year age gap.

But despite being ‘steady’ in a relationship for three months, Dan disappeared until New Year and they reunited for an encounter which led to Joanna becoming pregnant.

They got back together but admitted that they had “problems”, which is when Joanna said Dan began using her catalogue account to buy men’s clothing, including boxers and Nike Air trainers.

Dan also admitted that he had cheated on Joanna while she was on holiday, which formed part of the reason for the Facebook post.

Rinder then went on to discuss Dan’s counter claim of malicious falsehood over the post, which he said has affected his business.

The judge probed Dan about an invoice he provided which claimed it was for work already completed - which turned out to be false.

“This is not a real invoice, correct?” he barked. “This does not represent work done by you.”

Sheepish Dan said it was an “estimate”.

Rinder continued: “In terms of value, this doesn’t help me does it?”

Frustrated Dan then delivered a shocking reply: “No matter what I’ve done, whether I’ve cheated, she should never have tried to ruin my business by putting that post up.

“She should have just slept with another guy.”

There were gasps from the public gallery as Joanna pointed out she is seven months’ pregnant.

“I feel like I have died and woken up on Geordie Shore,” said Rinder.

Joanna said she would take the post down as Dan broke down and accused her of selling his dog, which she denied.

Dan is not happy with the ruling as pregnant Joanna stands in the background

In his ruling, Judge Rinder awarded Joanna £353.99 for one order on the catalogue account, while Dan received just 10p because although the Facebook post was both malicious and false, the invoice supplied was phoney and the consequences were minimal.

Rinder also ruled that Dan had given Joanna permission to keep - and therefore sell - the kayak.

Backstage, Dan was not happy, raging: “I’m sorry, I’m going. Ten pence? She’s ruined my livelihood.”

 

Viewers were in stitches over the ruling and took to Twitter to speak of their joy.

“10p what a joke don’t spend it all at once,” said one.

Another posted: “10p! Cannae even buy you a Freddo bar.”

A third tweeted: “Wow, I wish I could sue someone on Judge Rinder for 10p.”

While another quipped: “He was lucky to get the 10p.”

Judge Rinder airs weekdays from 9.30am on ITV.
