Show opening
First up is a clip (3mins 7secs) from one listener who is a house owner and previously called the show saying he is about to be made bankrupt for council tax arrears. Mike goes through the Official receiver's (OR's) fees to be added to the council arrears, it's frightening.

Top caller
Top caller was Carl who has £47,000 of debt including credit cards and thought bankruptcy. Thinking he wouldn't have to pay anything in his bankruptcy I surprised him by revealing he would still being paying over £8,000 to his creditors if he still devised to go insolvent. I then go through some alternatives to bankruptcy.
