Robson Green: Tax-dodging celebrities are a disgrace

By Sherna Noah

TV star Robson Green has hit out at tax-dodging celebrities - saying that they should "hang their heads in shame".

The actor and presenter (49) singled out particular criticism for comedian Jimmy Carr, who previously admitted making a "terrible error of judgment" after his arrangements - he was said to be using an aggressive but legal tax-avoidance scheme - came to light.

Earlier this year multi-millionaire Take That star Gary Barlow was also accused of being involved in a tax avoidance scheme.

Green, whose father was a miner, said he was "very proud" to be a 50% taxpayer.

He said people who didn't pay their proper level of tax were cheating the system and their fellow citizens.
