However, because she is not married to the Hobbit actor, she faces the same bankruptcy laws as a single person.

A source said: "Amanda has done nothing legally wrong, but I am sure Revenue and Customs officials will be fuming on missing out on her cash, especially given her common-law husband is a very successful actor.

"Bankruptcy laws recognise individuals rather than couples, so the penniless partner of a wealthy person is free to go bust like anyone else."

Abbington currently lives with Freeman and their two young children in a £900,000 home in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.

Her bankruptcy was registered in the High Court under her birth name Amanda Jane Smith.

The actress recently revealed that she had a cancer scare while Freeman was away in New Zealand filming The Hobbit.
