Over a dozen brides have complained that a wedding caterer charged them hundreds of pounds for biscuits, donuts and coleslaw from supermarkets.

At least 13 women have said Jason Davidson – the head of JLS Entertainment – ruined their special day by providing terrible food. 

One woman, 34-year-old Kelly Dickens, said she paid £850 for a ‘shambles’ of a buffet.

She told The Sun: ‘It was shocking. There was coleslaw in Asda tubs.

‘I spent most of the time crying while some guests went to McDonald’s. And he turned up a drunken mess.’

She also said she is still waiting for a promised refund – despite getting married in March last year. 

But Davidson, 34, from Burton-on-Trent in Staffordshire, said: ‘You don’t get everything right, but I’ve never ripped people off.’

He did, however, admit that national fraud reporting centre Action Fraud had been in touch, while Derbyshire County Council said that trading standards were aware of the claims.

She added: ‘When he provided the entertainment, he refused to play any requests.

‘I married on New Year’s Eve and he was meant to stay until midnight but he told me at 10.30pm he was packing up and leaving.’

Meanwhile another bride, Edwina Elson, said Davidson did not even turn up to their wedding in Swadlincote, Derbyshire. 

They were forced instead to go to Sainsbury’s – despite claiming they paid Davidson £700.
