This story attracted me cos I thot dude looked like a brother and lo and behold…he is! I know it aint quite Nirvana back home but this is pretty desperate not so? Anywho, if you have been trying to get in touch with no luck, you now have an idea what been going on in his life (as in, e dey prison).

A bogus bride was caught out because she  ‘flinched’ when her phoney husband-to-be touched her knee in a register  office.

Emilia Ginova, 22, was jailed today for  posing as a blushing bride ready to walk up the aisle with her  groom.

But a court heard Ginova had only first seen  Nigerian student Louis Esene on the day of the service – and was being paid  £3,000 to take part in the sham marriage.

She was caught out by an eagle-eyed registrar  who spotted her shocked reaction when Esene, 28, reached out to touch her  leg.

Registration officer Donna Davies said: ‘The  groom tried to touch the bride’s knee but she looked very  uncomfortable.

‘She flinched and there was no interaction at  all. I knew it was a scam.’

The marriage was stopped – and the pair were  both arrested at the register office in Pontypridd, South Wales.

It was later revealed that Esene wanted to  stay in Britain because his visa had run out.

The court was told a friend recruited Ginova  – who is a Slovakian-born Roma – and was four months pregnant by another man at  the time of the wedding.

Esene and Ginova pleaded guilty to conspiracy  to facilitate a breach of immigration law.

Prosecutor Rachel Knight said: ‘The registrar  was suspicious of Esene and Ginova when they had notified their intent to wed as  they could not communicate with each other.

‘She did not find it convincing in any  way.

‘It was part and parcel of a plan to  circumvent immigration rules, which would allow him to work, access to the NHS,  social security and housing benefit.’

Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court heard the bogus  bride and groom met first on November 22 last year – and spent the morning  shopping for rings and a wedding dress.

But the court heard Esene lost his temper  when Ginova failed to ‘learn her lines properly’ – and threatened he could put  ‘anyone in a dress’.

Both were jailed – Ginova, of Chatham, for 18  months and Esene, of Pontypridd, for 21 months. Esene  will be deported to Nigeria at the end of his sentence

Judge Richard Twomlow said: ‘It strikes at  the integrity of the importance of marriage.’
