It has been reported that former T4 presenter Miquita Oliver (27) has filed for bankruptcy.
Oliver first got her big break on television (thanks to being well-connected) at the age of sixteen when she was chosen to c0-host hit Channel 4 music show Pop World alongside Simon Amstell. She also went on to become a regular T4 presenter for many years before quitting in 2010.
According to The Daily Mirror Oliver failed to pay a tax bill of more than £170,000, according to a firm of accountants. A statement released by Baker Tilly Restructuring and Recovery said: “HMRC had petitioned for Miss Oliver to be declared bankrupt for unpaid taxes amounting to £174,514.47
Oliver hasn’t been seen on television much since leaving T4 but her publicist confirmed yesterday that,
Miquita Oliver filed for bankruptcy in November 2011. She has many projects in the pipeline both here and in the US for 2012.”
Oh dear. How the once smug and mighty fall.
Admittedly when Miquita co-hosted Pop World with Simon Amstell their interviews with A-list music stars were hilarious. They made a good team. But I think somewhere down the line the fame and good fortune went to her head.
“She has many projects in the pipeline both here and in the US for 2012”.
Really??? I would love to know what those projects are.
