I’m A Celebrity winner Jacqueline Jossa’s business is reportedly being investigated for owing tax.
According to reports, the company was put into voluntary liquidation after owing more than £32,000 in tax.
The former EastEnders actress’ company Pooker Bash Limited apparently owes the amount to HMRC in VAT and corporation tax.
The business, which was set up in 2013, handled payments from her former job as Lauren Branning in the BBC soap.
Jacqueline left her role in 2018.
According to the Mirror, documents were lodged with Companies House.
A liquidator wrote: “Examinations have identified a number of payments from the company that require further investigation and explanation from the director, and enquiries are ongoing.”
Meanwhile, a document added: “It is unlikely that there will be a dividend payable to creditors.”
In addition, a source told the publication that Jacqueline is ‘fully co-operating with the queries’.
It is unlikely that there will be a dividend payable to creditors.
