The BBC Online quotes his agent Chrissy Smith as saying Barrymore’s decision to file for bankruptcy was the result of a ‘surprise’ tax bill accumulated over the past 10 years.

Barrymore’s 20-year career has been hurt by personal problems and he was sacked form the ITV series My Kind of Music in 2001.

Following this he went on tour in New Zealand and Australia and then returned for a one-man comedy show on the West End, but pulled out days into the run citing personal reasons.

He is currently living in New Zealand.
