As previous posts stated,bailiffs can force entry in relation to unpaid magistrates court fines(which can't be included in bankruptcy) but is a last resort.
Bailiffs can also break into your home in relation to HMRC debts, but only with a magistrates warrant, again a last resort and very rare.
Additionally a bailiff pushing past you, or putting a foot in the door to stop you closing the door would be classed as forced entry and make the whole process illegal.
Hope this helps
