There was a plan in place for Katie to pay her creditors £12,000 a month, but she is said to have failed to stick to the agreement's terms.

As a result, the company representing the insolvency practitioner overseeing the realtiy star's Individual Voluntary Agreement - a formal payment plan agreed last November - took the case to court.

Katie didn't attend the court or send a solicitor, according to MailOnline.

I do judge Ms Price to be bankrupt.

Speaking at the Rolls Building in London, Adam Taylor of JMW said: "She hasn't acknowledged the petition."

And Judge Jonathan Middleton said: "I do judge Ms Price to be bankrupt. The date is today and the time is 12:35. Ms Price isn't present or represented so there is, as far as we can identify, no opposition."
