Ryan Thomas doing bar work to settle tax bill?
Ryan Thomas has reportedly been making public appearances at night clubs in northern England in a bid to pay off an outstanding tax bill
Ryan Thomas is taking on bar work to help settle a tax bill.
The 'Coronation Street' actor reportedly owes £40,000 to Inland Revenue and has resorted to making personal appearances at night clubs in a bid to raise the funds.
Ryan, who plays builder Jason Grimshaw in the ITV soap, will make £2,000 for an upcoming gig at a Yates' bar where he'll be responsible for mixing cocktails and greeting fans.
A flier for the club night at Yates' in Preston, Lancashire tonight (23.01.15) reads: "Ryan Thomas - aka Jason from Coronation Street. Live behind the bar shaking some cocktails!"
The 30-year-old star - who is said to be dating model Rio Fredrika - was reportedly declared bankrupt in October 2013 but is now close to earning enough to pay off his outstanding tax bill after making a number of personal appearances at clubs in the north of England.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Ryan is desperate to pay off his debt and is working hard away from Corrie to get the cash. He is getting there and confident he will pay off the taxman in the next few months. He was declared bankrupt after investments let him down."
