Hello and welcome to today’s edition of A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh.
According to The Sun newspaper, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here winner Joe Swash has been declared bankrupt only a year after winning the show. Apparently the ex EastEnders star was allegedly unable to pay the tax man a final £20,000 instalment of the £120,000 he owed the tax office.
The former soap star’s bankruptcy was made official at London’s High Court of Justice after the tax office said he had run out of time to pay the final instalment of the bill. The Official Receiver is now said to be in control of his assets.
Swash has said that the ruling was a mistake and that he’ll try to get it annulled. His agent Becca Barr told The Sun: “Joe has not been around to sort this out. The bankruptcy should never have gone through. He’s not in financial difficulty – he’s fine.”
Hey soapsters, this is real bad news for Joe Swash,and it couldn’t have come at a worse time, because apparently the former soap star is due to appear as a guest presenter on the Australian version of I’m A Celebrity later this month.
Let’s hope that Joe’s agent is right and that Swash isn’t in any real financial difficulty…let’s hope that the star of I’m A Celebrity can get himself out of this apparent financial mishap.
That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Friday for more soap news and gossip and don’t forget to try this week’s caption competition
