The former X Factor contestant and her family have won their appeal against deportation after fearing they would be sent back to Zimbabwe after a court ruling.
Earlier this year, the family was refused leave to stay in the UK by the Home Office after a decision passed at the immigration court in Glasgow.
The Home Office now has five days to appeal against the decision, which was granted in accordance with the family’s right to a private and family life, as set out in the European convention on human rights.
The move to deport her family came in February after allegations that her mother, a nurse, had wrongly claimed working tax credits. The family has always contested the allegation,
which was successfully appealed against at a private hearing. Full Story.
