Comedian Jim Davidson has been declared bankrupt.
Media outlets reported today that he had failed to keep up payments on a
£1.4m tax bill.
The 52-year-old comic said the HM Revenue & Customs had refused to
negotiate over the bill. Davidson had been struggling, reports said, to meet
payments of about £400,000 a year.
Davidson, who lives in Dubai, said he wanted to finish paying off the bill,
now down to about £700,000.
‘This is kind of a shock to me,’
told the BBC News website. ‘The tax man has, for reasons best known to
himself, pulled the rug out from under my feet. I am still pretty solvent. I
just can’t pay £700,000 right now.’
