British Tv star Ryan Thomas has been declared bankrupt.

The Coronation Street actor reportedly earns an estimated $135,000 (£90,000)-a-year but filed for bankruptcy last week after reportedly spending a fortune on parties and drink and failing to pay taxes.

It is believed Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs officials decided to take Thomas to court after a disagreement over unpaid taxes but after being unable to make payments a judge confirmed the bankruptcy order on 4 October (13).
