'Coronation Street' Star Ryan Thomas Declared Bankrupt

'Corrie' star Ryan Thomas, who plays builder Jason Grimshaw in the ITV soap, has been declared bankrupt.

The actor, who earns an estimated £90,000 a year, filed for bankruptcy last week after a petition by HM Revenue and Customs following a dispute over unpaid taxes.

Ryan - who has been a regular on the Weatherfield cobbles for the last 13 years - is the latest in a string of celebs who have filed for bankruptcy.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Calum Best had filed for bankruptcy.

And just last month, Blue star Duncan James revealed he was bankrupt, whilst in February former 'Eastenders' star Martine McCutcheon did the same.

Kerry Katona owed about £1m upon declaring herself bankrupt and Westlife's Shane Filan also filed for bankruptcy just days before the hugely successful Irish group played their farewell show last summer after suffering losses as a result of the property crash.

Ryan’s bankruptcy order was confirmed in the High Court of Justice on October 4.
