London, April 23 (ANI): Former English cricketer Phil Tufnell’s ex-wife is said to be on the run after she was accused of benefit fraud.

Alison Sywak, 43, allegedly pocketed 34,000 pounds in benefits - despite having more than 100,000 pounds in the bank.

The former call girl is said to have claimed housing benefit, job seeker’s allowance and child credit from 2005 to 2007 while living in Bromley, Kent.

She is said to have continued drawing handouts while living in a 1-million -pound apartment in Singapore with her wealthy new hubby Simon.

A warrant was issued for the mum of two’s arrest after she failed to appear in court last May.

In 2007 she and Simon moved to Singapore and their whereabouts now are unknown.

Sywak’s three-year marriage to the former spin bowler and ‘I’m a Celeb’ winner Tufnell, 43, ended in 1989.

“She was summonsed for failing to notify a change of circumstance,” the Sun quoted Bromley Council as saying. (ANI)
