Martine Mccutcheon - Martine Mccutcheon Is Bankrupt

British singer/actress Martine Mccutcheon has been declared bankrupt.

The Love Actually star filed for bankruptcy at a court near her home in Surrey, England under her real name Martine Kimberley Sherri Ponting, according to finance publication Credit Today.

It is not clear why the star's finances have collapsed, but David Standish, of Dutch auditing firm Kpmg, who has been appointed joint trustee of her estate, appears to suggest a large unpaid tax bill is to blame.

He says, "Ms MCCutcheon petitioned for her own bankruptcy at Kingston-Upon-Thames County Court. We are now responsible for administering her estate and are in the process of establishing the individual's assets and liabilities; the largest creditor being Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs."

MCCutcheon shot to fame in Britain in the mid-1990s as barmaid Tiffany Mitchell in hit soap opera EastEnders before launching a pop career and achieving a number one single in the U.K. chart in 1999. She continued to act, landing a role in 2003's Love Actually and scooping a Laurence Olivier Award for her portrayal of Eliza Doolittle in a London stage production of My Fair Lady.

In recent years her Tv and acting roles have diminished and she has appeared in advertising campaigns for several high-profile British brands.
