Martine McCutcheon, star of Love Actually and once billed as once of Britain's most successful soap-to-screen stars, has been declared bankrupt.
The actress petitioned for bankruptcy at Kingston-Upon-Thames County Court under her given name, Martine Kimberley Sherri Ponting.
She will be discharged from bankruptcy on January 2, 2014.
KPMG have been appointed her trustees.
Why, hello there Mr/Ms PR agent person. Or wannabe journalist...we'll let the people decide.
To be serious, I liked Martine a lot in EastEnders and I even bought a couple of her albums. I thought she would have a promising future as an actress/singer but she seemed incapable of handling herself properly, like when she missed the majority of her performances during the run of My Fair Lady. I have a feeling she only has herself to blame for the way her career sank like it did.
