Former child star Drake Bell has vowed to bounce back from the financial troubles which reportedly drove him to bankruptcy.

The singer/actor is said to have filed bankruptcy papers back in February (14) after wracking up debts of around $581,000 (£363,125) in expenses and back taxes.

Bell has now opened up about his financial difficulties and vowed to put his money problems behind him.

He tells, "That financial stuff could have happened to anybody. There's decisions that have to be made as far as business, but as long as you really care about the craft and remember why you originally started in this business, it comes back."
