Wednesday 13 February 2013
Martine McCutcheon has thanked fans for their support after she was declared bankrupt.
The former EastEnders star and Love Actually actress petitioned for bankruptcy at Kingston-Upon-Thames County Court.
Now the 36-year-old has told her fans she has been "truly touched" by their kind thoughts in an online message.
She said: "I can't begin to express my love and gratitude for such kind and encouraging messages. I'm truly so touched. I love you guys. Thank you."
McCutcheon, 36, shot to fame at the age of 18 as Tiffany in BBC1 soap EastEnders. And she went on to enjoy a number one hit with the song "Perfect Moment" and win a Laurence Olivier Award in 2002 for her role as Eliza Doolittle in the stage production of My Fair Lady.
The actress published a novel, The Mistress in 2009, which was a top 10 bestseller, and starred with Hugh Grant in 2003 film Love Actually.
Last year, she was pictured in Hello! magazine tying-the-knot on the shores of Italy's Lake Como with "best friend" Jack McManus.
Bankruptcy trustees KPMG said the star's "largest creditor" was Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs.
KPMG'S David Standish, who was appointed joint trustee in bankruptcy of McCutcheon by the Secretary of State on January 24, said: "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, who was the face of Danone Activia yoghurt in its TV adverts, recently filmed an episode of Midsomer Murders. According to her management's website, she is working on a second novel and is in the studio working on new material.
