Cheeky Girls facing new bankruptcy proceedings

Pop duo served with bankruptcy order by taxman, who is after £60,000 in unpaid tax

A bankruptcy order has been filed against the Cheeky Girls, led by the
taxman who is seeking to recover £60,000 in unpaid tax.

Accountancy Age understands that Louise Brittain of Baker Tilly
could be named as the bankruptcy trustee to recover the money and will examine
song rights and the last album released in 2007 as part of efforts to recoup the
debts.

A hearing took place last month with Romanian twins Monica and Gabriela
Irimia represented by their mother and manager Margit. The case adjourned until
early July.

It was reported in August 2006 that the girls ­ whose hit Cheeky
Song
(Touch my Bum) sold more than a million copies worldwide ­
faced bankruptcy over unpaid VAT, but they claimed it was due to their record
company Telstar collapsing in 2004 owing them £2m.

Accountancy Age contacted the Cheeky Girls’ agent but received no
comment before going to press.
