At the height of her career, Martine was earning an incredible £250,000 a year for her portrayal of beloved Eastenders character Tiffany Mitchell.
Unfortunately for Martine, thanks to her character being tragically being killed off in 1998, a return to Eastenders seems unlikely.
Saying this, Dirty Den did come back from the dead- so why not Tiffany?
The reason why Martine has found herself in so much debt could be attributed to her love of the finer things in life.
In a previous interview, the actress admitted that she was a lover of 'nice things'.
She said: “I love nice things – I consider Ralph Lauren sheets to be a necessity, not a luxury – but I’ve known what it’s like to be poor.
“I always take care of my stuff. I adore Julien Macdonald, Valentino, Chanel and Balenciaga. But even if I only spend a small amount, I’m so nouveau riche that as long as something is beautifully wrapped, I get a huge thrill.”
Martine McCutcheon is set to be discharged from bankruptcy in January of next year.
