Wife Swap pair's `hell'.

WIFE Swap couple the Bardsleys yesterday said their lives were ``a living hell'' after appearing on the Channel 4 show -and wished they had never taken part.

The family have been branded ``spongers'' after it became apparent they were receiving pounds 37,000 a year in benefits.

Mark Bardsley, who lives in Rochdale with wife Lizzy and their eight children, said he had now been offered a job as a result of the show. But he said he had no idea when he could start as he was now even more depressed.

The couple said they were upset by malicious letters because it was not their fault they were entitled to the cash.
