According to the Australian Associated Press, 10 other people are also charged with fraud, while some face charges of money laundering.

The committal hearing started in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday.

Around 500 people are listed on the witness list for a trial over involvement in an alleged telemarketing scam.

Police began investigating the alleged cold-calling scheme in 2013.

Daniel Webb rose to prominence after appearing on the Australian version of Married At First Sight, which is currently available to watch in the UK on Channel 4.
