Bankrupt Martine McCutcheon Gets £550 Hair Extensions (PICS)

If we'd just been made bankrupt, the last thing we'd be doing was getting £550 hair extensions, but try telling Martine McCutcheon that.

The former 'EastEnders' star filed bankruptcy papers earlier this week, but has now treated herself to a rather expensive new do.

After a tough week, she was showing off her new full head of hair on Twitter.

Gold Hair Extensions tweeted a snap of the star before and after, with Martine later adding: "you cheered me up with your kindness and new luscious hair! Thanks for treating me and making me feel nice. X"

After papers were filed at a Kingston-Upon-Thames court, it was revealed Martine was £187,000 in debt, with the majority owed to the taxman and £30,000 owed to Lloyds Bank.

The actress - who shot to fame as Tiffany Mitchell in 'EastEnders' before starring in 'Love Actually' with Hugh Grant in 2003 - later thanked fans for their support.

She posted on Twitter: "I can't begin to express my love and gratitude for such kind and encouraging messages. I'm truly so touched. I love you guys. Thank you. Xx."
