How Did Joe Swash Get So Rich?
Joe Swash was born on 20 January 1982 in Islington, United Kingdom. He studied at Highbury Grove School in Islington and attended Anna Scher Theatre School. He made his first television appearance in an Andrex advertisement at the age of seven. Four years later, he was cast in the movie The Adventures of Pinocchio. He also made minor appearances in several TV series such as Casualty and The South Bank Show.
Joe was about to give up on the idea of becoming an actor when he won a role in the soap opera EastEnders. His investment into acting school finally paid off. He was cast as Mickey Miller and made his first appearance in April 2003. After a very positive reception, producer turned Mickey into a regular character. Swash dated several attractive women. Emma Sophocleous was his girlfriend from 2005 til 2008. Soon after their breakup, Joe started dating hot actress Kara Tointon. They were a couple until 2010.
In November 2008, he appeared in the eighth series of the British reality show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! in Australian jungle, which he went on to win. Despite his various sources of income, Joe is not very good at increasing his net worth. In 2009 he was declared bankruptcy after failing to pay a £20,000 tax bill. Unfortunately, he hasn’t learned his lesson and four years later, he has been declared bankrupt for a second time when he failed to pay owed tax once more. This time the bill was £50,000.
