Coronation street favourite declared bankrupt 23 May 2012

Coronation Street actress Beverley Callard has been declared bankrupt.

The TV star – best known for pulling pints as barmaid Liz McDonald in the popular soap – has been hit with a bankruptcy order.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) had petitioned the actress over a reported £60,000 tax bill.

According to the London Gazette, HMRC filed for Callard, of Salford, to be made bankrupt in January under her married name of Beverley McEwan.

Manchester-based Danny Brogan from the Insolvency Service has been appointed Official Receiver (OR) for the 55-year-old actress.

The OR is responsible for protecting the bankrupt’s estate and investigating the individual’s behaviour and affairs.

Callard – who has appeared in Coronation Street for more than 20 years – left the soap in April 2011.

The mother-of-two has also appeared in comedy Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.
