Kerry Katona was born to mum Sue in Warrington in 1980. Her life got off to a troubled start, with Sue battling depression and drug and alcohol problems, so Kerry lived in various homes.

By the age of 11 Kerry had been to 8 different schools and was often taken into care. She left school at 16 and did a variety of jobs, including glamour modelling and lap dancing.

At 18 she joined girl group Atomic Kitten with Liz McClarnon and Natasha Hamilton and they hit the big time with their No 1 single Whole Again in 2001.

Kerry quit the band shortly after their success though when she fell pregnant with her and boyfriend Brian McFadden’s first baby. Daughter Molly was born in August 2001.

New parents Kerry and Brian got married in January 2002 and they welcomed their second little girl Lily-Sue in 2003.

A year later, Kerry Katona won I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! but sadly split from Brian later in 2004.

The break-up left her devastated and she ended up in rehab. She was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and put on medication.

Kerry started dating taxi driver Mark Croft and the couple married on Valentine’s day 2007. They welcomed daughter Heidi six days after their wedding and son Max was born in 2008.

Troubled Kerry starred in her own MTV reality shows during her relationship with Mark. She has also released several books over the years and has been declared bankrupt twice.

The singer split from Mark in March 2010 and slowly started to get her life back on track. She was a contestant on Dancing On Ice in 2011 and came in 8th place. She also appeared on Celebrity Big Brother.

In 2013 Kerry Katona reunited with Atomic Kitten for hit ITV2 show The Big Reunion and the group toured with fellow bands featured on the programme.

Boyfriend George Kay – who she first dated as a teenager – proposed to Kerry in April 2013 and they became parents to daughter Dylan-Jorge in April 2014. The couple married five months later but split in October 2015.
