Kerry Katona made bankrupt

Kerry Katona, the ex-atomic kitten, has been declared bankrupt for failing to
pay the final £82,000 of a £417,000 tax bill.

Luke Harris, a member of the legal team for the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of
Here star, had requested for the matter to be pushed back, however Registrar
Nicholls had only granted them a further hour, the
BBC reports.

Harris had said that the funds were available but that cheques would not be
cleared in time to meet the deadline of payment today.

Nicholls called Harris this afternoon for an update but Harris said: ‘he was
not in a position to assist further’.

The high court has now declared Katona bankrupt following a petition issued
by the HMRC earlier this year.

This is the fourth time the case has appeared in court.
