Bankrupt Corrie star Ryan Thomas jets off on fifth holiday this year

Despite his mounting debts, it seems soap actor Ryan Thomas is still living the life of luxury.
The Coronation Street star, who plays Jason Grimshaw, was declared bankrupt eighteen months ago as he owed over €40,000 in tax.
According to The Sun, he has yet to clear his debt fully.
However, that has not stopped him from travelling all over the globe and splashing out on a new Mercedes SL at the start of this year.
The actor blamed failed financial investments for his mounting debts, and vowed that he would be back in the black by October 2014.
Thomas raised money to clear his bills by doing personal appearances in nightclubs for the sum of €2,500, but according to insiders - some of the debt still remains.
Among his trips were a tour of Orlando, Florida with his daughter Scarlett (6), a lads' holiday to Ibiza, a stag party in Tenerife, Glastonbuy and a weekend at a lavish spa in Northern Ireland.
"He is working hard away from the screen to bring in some extra money," a source told The Sun. "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."
A representative for the actor said that some of the trips were work related, and he is still committed to paying back his debt.
