Directors Loan and Dissolved Company

Hi

I was a Director of a limited company that hit hard times and eventually ended up being struck off by companies house for not filling returns. 
I stuck my head in the sand during a period of around 3 years not filling in self assessment returns etc hoping that something magic would happen and it would either go away or I would win the lottery but alas neither has happened and I need to get it sorted.
My question is based around money I took out of the business. I was paying myself a salary and taking other money out as dividends. However now that the company no longer exists could I claim that the money I was going to declare as dividends was actually a directors loan and if I do will that mean as the company no longer exists I wouldn't be liable to pay tax on it.
Any help greatly appreciated - ordinarily I am a high rate tax payer and so is my wife so it's not as if I shirk paying tax this could just mean the difference between losing my house or not.
