The 38-year-old comedian invested in rental properties in the Greater Manchester area after finding success in his comedy career, but it has now been revealed he is selling his houses, with eight of them already off the market.

According to The Sun newspaper, Jason is looking to use the money made from the sales to settle the bill for his 2017 divorce from his first wife Catherine, and has made £3 million from the eight homes already sold.

Formal documents show Jason is dissolving his holding company Invisible Man Ltd, which will result in the selling of all 10 of his rental properties.

A report filed to Companies House reveals: "The principal activity of the Company was that of a holding Company which held a portfolio of investment properties.

"The Company has reached the end of its useful life and it was appropriate to wind the Company up in the form of a Voluntary Liquidation."

The report from the firm - which is run by the 'Scarborough' star and his brother Colin - also revealed that so far £400,000 from the homes sales had been handed over in taxes.

And the report said: "At the date of liquidation, the Company had ten properties, nine of those investment properties.

"At the date of this report, eight of these properties have been sold."

Jason split from Catherine in 2013, and came to a legal settlement in their divorce in 2017, the same year he married second wife Lucy Dyke.

Meanwhile, the 'What Would Your Kid Do?' host recently applied for an £8-an-hour customer services position at supermarket chain Tesco, in order to help ease the strain of staff amid the coronavirus pandemic.

But the comic had his application rejected via email, and took to social media to jokingly claim he was "livid".

He wrote: "Absolutely livid @Tesco . I was only trying to do my bit [laughing emoji] I hope the better person got and enjoys the job, I'll be watching [eyes emoji] (sic)"
