Despite financial troubles, Ryan Thomas of 'Coronation Street' has reportedly been on five holidays already this summer
'Coronation Street' star Ryan Thomas has reportedly been on five holidays already this summer - despite being declared bankrupt in October 2013.
The 31-year-old actor - who stars as Jason Grimshaw on the ITV show - still hasn't cleared his debts following a string of bad investments, but that hasn't stopped him from splashing the cash over the last few months on holidays and a £75,000 Mercedes SL.
However, a source told The Sun newspaper: "He is working hard away from the screen to bring in some extra money. But I don't suppose pictures of him swanning off on two foreign holidays in a short space of time will go down too well at the tax office.
"He had a few investments that let him down. In fact, Ryan was a victim of trying to make his money work by investing it."
A source also insisted that some of Ryan's overseas trips were related to work and he's committed to paying the money he owes.
The actor has been doing £2,000-a-night personal appearances in clubs to earn extra cash to reduce his debts, while he is also supporting his daughter Scarlett, who he fathered with fellow 'Coronation Street' star Tina O'Brien.
