Costa del Sol wedding scammer lands lead role in Irish reality TV show

Wedding Sue and Howard danker

A WEDDING planner who left a trail of debts in Spain has grabbed a starring role on an Irish reality TV show.

Sue Danker (who now uses the name Suzanne Mulvey) ‘vanished’ from the Costa del Sol in 2012, leaving countless couples high and dry on the day of their nuptials.

After fleeing to Dublin leaving thousands in debts, Danker apparently disappeared.

But now the Olive Press can reveal that Danker has landed herself a plum job as the PA to a multi-millionaire in Ireland.

And to add insult to injury, she is starring this week in a brand new TV show based on Michael Wright’s celebrated nightclub, The Wright Venue.

In what must be a major embarrassment, for Ireland’s national broadcaster RTE,  the high profile programme Clubland features Danker among the raft of his key staff.

Launching tonight, she is already seen in promotional material and sources told the Olive Press, she is expected to be ‘one of the key characters’.

Last night, victims of Danker in Spain, lined up on the Olive Press’s website and a Facebook page, to slam the ‘innappropriate’ decision to feature her.

“It is a total shock to see her on the show after what she has done. She must be stupid or have a short memory,” said Danker’s former employee and wedding singer Arran Harding.

“My hope is that RTE have to drop her from the show. It would be nice if she lost her job altogether.”

The Olive Press first reported on Danker and her husband/ business partner Howard Danker in October 2012, after many expats lost out to their company Spanish Dream Weddings.

One Irish couple who were scammed out of €15,000 in 2012, last night confirmed they are still taking legal action against the former wedding planner.

The bride, who wishes to remain anonymous, confirmed there were various other cases still ongoing.

“I don’t know of any cases that have been resolved. As far as I am aware nobody has seen their money returned.

“This company left me high and dry on the day of my wedding and should be made to pay.”

RTE – who previously followed Dankers’ move to Spain on their show The Great Escape in 2009 – said they do not comment on ‘private and personal matters’ that are ‘not directly relevant to the show’.

  1. I know others who lost out too, what a dirty trick to play on what is sometimes peoples’ biggest life event. This person is either very stupid or “sin vergüenza” as they say here in Spain.
