Duncan James was forced to sell his mum's home to pay off his debts.

The Blue singer - who was officially declared bankrupt on September 12 - had to make the ''heartbreaking'' decision to kick his mother out of the house he bought her in order to curb his money troubles.

He said: ''I bought a house for my mum, I bought a house for my ex-partner and my daughter and I spent about £1million on my home.

''I've always wanted to give my loved ones roofs over their heads and make sure they were taken care of, so that's what I did.

''Unfortunately - and I was far from the only person hit by it - the property crash came and I lost a lot of money. And now I've had to sell the home I bought for my mum.

''And that's been the most heartbreaking part for me. I so wanted to take care of her. But now she's living in rented accommodation and I do my best to help her with it, but I can't like I used to.''

The 'All Rise' hitmaker - who has daughter Tianie-Finn with his ex-girlfriend Claire Grainger - claims it was a relief to make his bankruptcy public so he can start again from scrath.

Duncan told The Sun newspaper: ''In some strange way, it's actually a relief to have been declared bankrupt. It means I can start again. Before I went bankrupt, I had been trying to pay off loans for years and felt as if I was a hamster in a wheel in a test tube with water slowly being poured inside.

''I felt like I kept going and going and trying and trying, but water kept coming in and I was drowning. So finally, the water's just been poured in and people who should have given a s**t didn't and I've drowned. But at least now I've got a chance to start again.''

The 35-year-old hunk will be hoping to cash in when Blue perform their first big tour since reforming in 2009, thanks largely to the popularity of ITV2 show 'The Big Reunion'.
