Tony Alleyne spent £100,000 he borrowed with 2 big loans and 14 credit cards to turn his flat into a Star Trek home. His idea was that other Star Trek fans would then pay him to do the same thing to their homes. Unfortunately, he went bankrupt doing this.
Tony, who split from his wife Georgina after he replaced their fridge with a "warp coil" said: "I was convinced Trekkies all over the world would want a house like mine and pay me to do it.
"But I was wrong and just overstretched. Building it in my apartment was the enjoyable and easy bit. But then I got hooked up with marketing and merchandise people here and in America and it all got out of hand.
"I'm still proud of what I created but it's been a financial disaster."
