Star sees some of herself in Jordan

Despite their reported feuds, Kerry Katona doesn’t have a bad word to say about Katie Price.

In fact, she identifies with her.

‘I’m not going to slag Katie off,’ she says. ‘I feel sorry for her.

‘I feel like I’m watching some of my old life.

‘She can sit there and say: “I’m happy and really in love’, but I did all that myself.”‘

Kerry, 29, whose divorce from Brian McFadden was finalised in 2006, is now living apart from Mark Croft, 39 – her husband of 3 years.

The mum-of-four reckons it’s important to get professional help when relationships are in difficulty.

‘She’s not doing herself any favours, like I wasn’t,’ Kerry says of Katie, 31.

‘I wish I’d got counselling.

‘You suffer rejection when someone leaves you, like Pete leaving her and Brian leaving me.’
