But, despite this fame and accompanying fortune, she was made bankrupt by the High Court after failing to deliver the final 82,000 of a 417,000 tax bill.
Sounds like she didn't pay tax for a number of years?

Now she's in the Kerry Katonna club, her next job will likely be advertising loans.
This is the bit I don't get. My understanding is that normal, non-celeb people don't have a bankruptcy order dissolved until 6 years have passed irrespective of whether you clear your debts or not. It's something that's meant to stay on your financial records for 6 years, so how is it that hers only lasts a year? Perhaps you get special rates if you're a celeb... Agree with the earlier poster who said she has most likely 'bought' houses and cars for family and close friends so that it seems as if she has no assets that can be used by HMRC as payment of her tax bill. She must not have paid tax for yonks to have a bill of 417k.
The 417,000 refers to Kerry Katona's tax bill. The article jumps about a bit referring to different zelebs, so it's not clear but it reads 'Her stock rose higher after winning I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here. But, despite this fame and accompanying fortune, she was made bankrupt by the High Court after failing to deliver the final 82,000 of a 417,000 tax bill'

Interestingly, I've not seem any figures about how much MM owes
