Kerry Katona has admitted that being filmed helps her to cope with difficult times in her life.

The mum-of-four – who’s starred in several reality shows – says having cameras on her makes her feel better.

She was even filmed for a fly-on-the-wall series during her tumultuous marriage to Mark Croft and admits that having the crew around helped her through it.

I like to have a full house. I miss them when they’re not here,’ says Kerry, 32.

And I honestly don’t think I’d ever have got through it without the cameras, because it was almost like free therapy.

I could say what I want – it was like my own psychiatrist, just getting it all off my chest to this camera.’

Having been in the public eye since she was 18, when she shot to fame with Atomic Kitten, Kerry can’t imagine her life without the attention.

Or not so much the press, but the public,’ she tells The Guardian Weekend.

The one thing I’ve always had, from being in my late teens, is support from the public.

Makes me feel wanted a little bit. I think people relate to me, and I like to think I’m here for a reason and that is to give people hope in life itself.’
