The insolvency chaps over at R3 have had a busy time recently. Not only have they been dealing with the normal round of events but they’ve also been advising the BBC on the bankruptcy of Eastenders character Ian Beale.
Now as all you soap viewers will know Ian’s property venture went belly up and he lost his home and furniture when the bailiffs came round.
